Numbers divisible by 5 from 100 to 1000 are $105,110,.............995$

This sequence is an A.P.

Here , first term =a =105

common difference = 5.

We know , $a_n = a+(n-1)d$

$995 = 105+(n-1)5$

$\Rightarrow \, \, 890 = (n-1)5$

$\Rightarrow \, \, 178 = (n-1)$

$\Rightarrow \, \, n=178+1=179$

$S_n = \frac{n}{2}[2a+(n-1)d]$

$= \frac{179}{2}[2(105)+(179-1)5]$

$= \frac{179}{2}[2(105)+178(5)]$

$= 179\times 550$

$= 98450$

The  sum of numbers divisible by 5 from 100 to 1000 is 98450.
