a1 + a24 = a10 + a15

in an AP the sum of the terms equidistant from both the ends is equal to the sum of the first and last term.

the question should have been -

 

a1+a5+a10+a15+a20+a24=225

a1+a5+a10+a15+a20+a24=225

if this is what the question says then -

a1 + a24 = a10 + a15 = a20 + a5

so we get 3(a1 + a24) = 225

or, a1 + a24 = 75

so the sum is simply (24/2)(75) = 900

      a1+a5+a10+a15+a20+a24=225

=> a + (a+4d) + (a+9d) + (a+10d) + (a+19d) + (a+23d) = 225
=> 6a +  69 d = 225=> 2a + 23 d = 75

sum of 24 terms = 2a+ 23d = 75

 sum of six terms in AP between fixed extremities =225

So sum of 6x4=24 terms in Ap between same fixed extrimities =4x225=900.
