    the way i did it was since the average is found by doing sum/ number of items i did average * the number of items to get the sum

    This is a confusing problem, as a lot is not specified. Like do the 120 positive appear in consecutive order, Where do you start? etc. You sure part of the problem isn't there?

    Well that may well be. If so it is a arithmetic sequence where the difference is 1 (1, 2, 3, 4.....120) The sum would be equal to: (120/2)(120+1) or 7260
