Assuming that by "become 30" you mean add up to 30 then the answer is no.5 odd numbers will always add up to an odd number; never an even amount.This question is a little unclear. If there are no stipulated rules and you just wish to perform a calculation with 5 odd numbers to reach 30 then this is possible. For example:((935 - 5) / (33 - 3)) - 1 = 30.

There are no 5 odd numbers that when added together make 30.Two odd numbers added together make an even numberAn odd number plus and even number makes an odd number.From the five odd numbers:Take two of them and add them together getting an even number and four odd numbersAdd another of the odd numbers to this even number and you will have three odd numbersAdd two of these together and you will have one even and one odd number.Finally add these odd and even numbers together and the result will be an odd numberBut 30 is an even number, so cannot be the sum of five (or any odd number of) odd numbers.

You cannot do this, because you're taking odd numbers: if you add two odd numbers together, you will get an even number. Take the odd numbers in pairs, so you'll have 3 pairs plus an extra odd number. The 3 pairs make 3 even numbers. You can add up any number of even numbers and get an even number, so you will have an even + odd, which is odd. 30 is an even number, but your result will be odd, no matter what 7 odd numbers you choose.

The sum of 3 odd numbers is odd while 30 is an even number. So there is not a valid answer in the normal sense. However, in base 9, 5 + 6 + 17 = 30 [In base 10, the above is 5 + 6 + 16 = 27]
