2018 Gauss Contest Questions and Answers

Hello, I was looking through the answers for questions 24-25 of the 2018 Waterloo Gr. 8 Gauss Contest (having already done the contest and getting q. 24&25 wrong), but I had a hard time understanding the answers on their page. Could you please clarify how to solve questions 24-25? Since I'm only a grade 8 (going into grade 9 this September), please use simpler maths so that I can understand what's going on.

Here are the links to the contest questions and answers:

https://cemc.uwaterloo.ca/contests/past_contests/2018/2018Gauss8Contest.pdf (Questions, q. 24-25 near the end)

https://cemc.uwaterloo.ca/contests/past_contests/2018/2018GaussSolution.pdf (Answers, q. 24-25 near the end, the ones in the middle are for Gr. 7 contest)

This is my first time here, so tell me if I'm doing anything wrong!

Thank you.
