    Default Algebra question (unexpected results)

    I was playing around with something, and got a unexpected result.

    I multiplied:

    112.5 by 2.125
    122.5 by 3.225
    132.5 by 4.325
    142.5 by 5.425

    Added the answers, then divided by 4

    Then I tried reducing the multiplier by 1, same division, similar answer.

    HOWEVER

    When I did the same procedure starting at 162.5, and moving similarly, the second set was further off than expected. Any math whizzes here?

    If nobody answers, that’s okay, I asked a math tutor site
