The highest 3-digit number is 999. It's the 999th counting number.

The first 99 counting numbers have fewer than 3 digits.

So there are (999 - 99) = 900 positive 3-digit numbers.
The first is 100, the last is 999.

100 + 999 = 1,099
101 + 998 = 1,099
102 + 997 = 1,099
There are (900/2) = 450 pairs; each pair adds up to 1,099.

The sum of all pairs is (450 x 1,099) = 494,550 .

To calculate factors using this tool, you will enter positive integers, because the calculator will only allow positive values, to calculate factors of a number. if you need to calculate negative numbers, you enter the positive value, get the factors and duplicate the answer yourself with all the give positive factors as negatives like as -5 and -6 as factors of number 30.

Why the standard deviation of set of data will always be greater than zero?

The standard deviation is always be equal or higher than zero. If my set of data is limited to whole numbers, all of which are equal, the standard deviation is 0. In all other situations, we first calculate the difference of each number from the average and then calculate the square of the difference. While the difference can be a negative, the square of the difference can not be. The square of the standard deviation has to be positive, since it is the sum of all positive numbers. If we calculate s2 = 4, then s can be -2 or +2. By convention, we take the positive root.
