## Problem

There are exactly $5$ even positive integers less than or equal to $100$ that are divisible by $x$. What is the sum of all possible positive integer values of $x$?

## Solution $x$ must have exactly 5 even multiples less than $100$. We have two cases, either $x$ is odd or even. If $x$ is even, then $5x < 100 < 6x$. We solve the inequality to find $\frac{50}{3} \leq x \leq 20$, but since $x$ must be an integer we have x = 18, 20. If $x$ is odd, then we can set up the inequality $10x\leq100\leq12x$. Solving for the integers $x$ must be $9$. The sum is $18+20+9$ or $\boxed{47}$

## Solution 2

Suppose $x$ is odd. We have $xk$ for $k \equiv 0 \mod 2$ must work for $xk \le 100$. Clearly $k=\{2,4,6,8,10 \}$, which means the maximum value that $xk$ can take on is $90=9 \cdot 10$, and the minimum value it can take on is $2=2 \cdot 1$. Since we need exactly 5 even integers, only $x=9$ will work. Now, suppose $x$ is even. We have $1 \le k \le 5$, which means $x=\{18,20 \}$ hold exactly $5$ even integer multiples. The answer is $18+20+9=\boxed{47}$
