Find the value of \$a_2+a_4+a_6+a_8+\dots+a_{98}\$ if \$a_1, a_2, a_3, \ldots\$ is an arithmetic progression with common difference \$1\$ and\[a_1+a_2+a_3+\dots+a_{98}=137.\]

Since we are taking exactly haf the terms, a_2 + a_4 + ... + a_98 = 137/2.

That's not correct because each term is greater than the one before it. Since there are 49 pairs, we have to subtract 49 to get 88 divide by 2 to get 44 and add the 49 back. 93.

:D
