Arithmetic Progression 
13. Find the sum of all natural numbers between 100 to 200 and which are not divisible by 4 .
Required Addition = `(100 + 101 + 102... + 200)  (100 + 104 + 108... + 200)`
Required Addition = `S'  S''`
We know that, `S_n = n/2 (a + l)`
`:. S_101 = 101/2 * (100 + 200)`
`= 101/2 (300)`
`= 15150`
Numbers between `100` and `200` divisible by `4` are `100, 104, 108 ...`
Which are in arithmetic progression. In which `a=100` and `d=4`
Let `n` be the term such that `f(n) = 200`
We know that, `f(n) = a + (n  1)d`
`100 + (n  1)(4) = 200`
`(n  1)(4) = 100`
`n  1 = 25`
`n = 26`
We know that, `S_n = n/2 [2a + (n  1)d]`
`:. S_26 = 26/2 * [2(100) + (26  1)(4)]`
`= 13 * [200 + (100)]`
`= 13 * [300]`
`= 3900`
`:.` Required Addition = `15150  3900`
`= 11250`
