# If the sum of five consecutive even numbers A, B, C, D and E is 110, what is the product of B and D?

[ A ]    460
[ B ]    480
[ C ]    520
[ D ]    760
[ E ]    None of these
 Answer : Option B Explanation : Let A be x. Then, B = x + 2, C = x + 4, D = x + 6 and E = x + 8 Now, x + x + 2 + x + 4 + x + 6 + x + 8 = 110 or, 5x = 110 - 20 = 90 x = 18 B = 20 and D = 24Hence, B $\times$ D = 20 $\times$ 24 = 480
