The sum of all numbers between 0 and 10,000 which is exactly divisible by 77 is:

that answer is apparently 645645 but I only get either 634426 or 654350 when i solve, pls enlighten me how to get the correct answer.

Your question does not make sense.

Very poorly worded question !

I think what you want to say is:

What consecutive integers between 0 and 10,000 sum up to: 645,645 ?

The answer is: all integers between 19 (inclusive) and 1,136 (inclusive) =645,645

645,645 mod 77 =0 - the remainder.

S = 77 + 154 + 231 + ... = 1*77 + 2*77 + 3*77 + ...

10,000/77 = 129.87

129*77 = 9933

130*77 = 10,010

S = 1*77     + 2*77     + 3*77     + ... + 129*77

S = 129*77 + 128*77 + 127*77 + ... + 1*77
