No.

There are four consecutive odd integers: 81, 83, 85 and 87.

The integers are 17, 19, 21 and 23.

This is not possible. Four odd integers, consecutive or otherwise, MUST total an even number eg 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 = 32

The integers are 81, 83, 85 and 87.

-1, 1, 3, 5

33, 35, 37 and 39.

17 , 19 , 21 and 23 are the odd integers whose sum is 80 and the least integer is 17

Let x be the smallest of the consecutive odd integers. Since consecutive odd integers differ by 2, we havex + (x + 2) + (x + 4) + (x + 6) = -2204x + 12 = -220 (subtract 12 to both sides)4x = -232 (divide by 4 to both sides)x = -58Thus, the four consecutive odd integers whose sum is -220 are -58, -56, -54, and -52.

There are no three consecutive odd integers who's sum equals 13.

11, 13, 15, and 17
