5x1 + 5x2 + 5x3 + 5x4 ..... 5x100 = 5 * (1 + 2 + 3 + 5 .... + 100)
= 5 * (sum of n numbers)

For calculating the sum of n numbers we have the formula
i.e (n * (n + 1)) / 2

apply the formula in the above equation.
where n = 100
so
= 5 * (100 * (100 + 1)) / 2
= 5 * (50 * 101)
= 5 * 50 * 101
= 25250
This the sum of the first 100 positive number which is multiples of 5.

And for average:
= 25250 /100
= 252.50
