Find the sum of the following series by pairing two numbers to make ten(s).

1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13 + 15 + 17 + 19

 

\( \begin{array}{rcrcrcrcrcrcrcrcrcrcr} \hline \hline 1 &+& 3 &+& 5 &+& 7 &+& 9 &+& 11 &+& 13 &+& 15 &+& 17 &+& 19 & \\ \hline \hline 1 & & & & & & & & & & & & & & & & &+& 19 & =& 20 \\ \hline & & 3 & & & & & & & & & & & & &+& 17 & & & =& 20 \\ \hline & & & & 5 & & & & & & & & &+& 15 & & & & & =& 20 \\ \hline & & & & & & 7 & & & & &+& 13 & & & & & & & =& 20 \\ \hline & & & & & & & & 9 &+& 11 & & & & & & & & & =& 20 \\ \hline \hline & & & & & & & & & & & & & & & & & & & =& 100\\ \hline \hline \end{array}\)

 

( 1 + 19 ) + ( 3 + 17 ) + ( 5 + 15 ) + ( 7 + 13 ) + ( 9 + 11 ) = 20 + 20 + 20 + 20 + 20 = 100

(1+9) + (3+7) + (5+15) + (7+13) + (11+19)

10 + 10 + 20 + 20 + 30  = 90

( 1 + 19 ) + ( 3 + 17 ) + ( 5 + 15 ) + ( 7 + 13 ) + ( 9 + 11 ) = 20 + 20 + 20 + 20 + 20 = 100

Two great answers, but one of them must be wrong.

The first says 90, the second 100.

Yep One of them is wrong....and it's my answer    the answer is 100...I made a typo. The 4th term in my sequence should read (17+13)    NOT   (7 +13)
