    • karthik

      plz explain

      • ൠ😲๔€𝓐𝓓ⓛⓨ ⓐⓢ𝓢𝕒ùL𝓣 ✌🐝

        conc.even no..=>2a ,2a+2,2a+4,2a+6
        conc odd no =>2a,2a+1,2a+3
        even total =8a+12
        odd total =6a+9
        now 8a+12 =81+6a+9
        =>2a=102 =>a =51
        so even no =102,104,106,108
        so odd no =103,105,107
        so E(l)-O(l) =108 -107 =1

        • karthik

          odd total 6a + 9 wrong

        conc.even no =2a,2a+2,2a+4,2a+6 =8a+12
        conc odd no =2b+1,2b+3,+2b+5 =6b+9
        now frm 1st cond
        8a+12 =81+6b+9
        =>8a-6b =78——————–(1)
        frm 2nd cond
        2a+2b+1 =59
        =>a+b =29———————–(2)
        from here a =18 and b =11
        even no,36,38,40 ,42
        odd no =23,25,27
        so E(L)-O(L) =42-27 =15
