The smallest is 55.

The smallest consecutive three numbers that total 120 are... 39, 40 & 41.

The smallest is 55.

If the numbers are consecutive then the middle number must be one-third of 51. The numbers are thus 16, 17 and 18.

The range of a set of numbers is the range between the largest and the smallest number. This is basically the largest number in the sequence subtract the smallest number in the sequence. In this case, the smallest number is 7 and the largest number is 35. This makes the range 28.

The sum is always 3 more than (triple the smallest number).

From the information given, the smallest number cannot be determined and could be anything from 0 to 58. If you meant 33 consecutive numbers, then this question has been answered here already and the answer is 42.

No, because every other number in the number line is odd so therefore if you have any number of consecutive numbers you will have at least one odd number (if you're talking about consecutive numbers on a number line).

The average is 58 so, sum(m...n)/33=58. You can think of this as 58 being the middle marker for the consecutive set of numbers which leaves 32 other number, with 16 on one side of 58 and 16 on the other side. So 58-16=42 and 58+16=74. Therefore your consecutive number set is sum(42...74)/33 and so the smallest of these is 42.

There are infinitely many prime numbers, and also infinitely many twin primes so there is no answer to the question.

As all the required numbers are even, we can identify the smallest value number as 2a, then the other three consecutive even numbers are (2a + 2), (2a + 4) and (2a + 6). The sum of these four numbers is, 2a + (2a + 2) + (2a + 4) + (2a + 6) = 8a + 12 Then, 8a + 12 = 412 8a = 412 - 12 = 400 2a = 400 / 4 = 100 The four consecutive even numbers are 100, 102, 104 & 106. NOTE : In this problem the choice of 'a' as the smallest value number would have achieved the correct answer but in other situations such a choice could have resulted in 4 consecutive ODD numbers being found. When in doubt use 2a or similar to clearly identify that the number is even.

There are no four consecutive whole numbers that add up to 35. The sum of two consecutive [whole] numbers is an even number plus an odd number which is an odd number. The sum of two consecutive numbers and the two next consecutive numbers is the sum of two odd numbers which is even, but 35 is odd, so no four consecutive whole numbers cannot add up to 35.

There are no two consecutive numbers that equal 70 because the sum of any two consecutive numbers is an odd number.

Adding consecutive pairs of numbers will always turn out to be an odd number. It would have to be consecutive odd numbers: 45 and 47.

Let be x the smallest number. So, the second number will be x + 1, and the third one will be x + 2. So, x + (x + 1) + (x + 2) = 18 3x + 3 = 18 subtract 3 to both sides; 3x = 15 divide by 3 to both sides; x = 5 Thus, the smallest number is 5. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Couldn't you also just use the factors of 18: 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, 18 Prime Numbers: 3 x 3 x 2 Smallest Number is then 2. You are right, 2 is the smallest prime number in the prime factorization of 18. But, the question is that three consecutive numbers are added up to 18, and 3 x 3 x 2 is a multiplication. However, 2 and 3 are consecutive so the third number will be 4 not 3. I didn't catch the consecutive part. Good call and thanks for the input.

You seem to be asking what consecutive numbers are. Consecutive numbers are integers in order, with each one being exactly 1 higher than the previous one. To put it another way, each number is the next higher integer after the previous one. For example, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 are consecutive numbers. One can also refer to consecutive even numbers, consecutive odd numbers, consecutive square numbers, etc. In each case, each number in the sequence is the next higher number of the specified kind after the previous one. For example, 12, 14, 16, 18 are consecutive even numbers.

No numbers (consecutive or not) can lie between a single number.

Consecutive numbers will always total an odd number. Consecutive odd numbers or consecutive primes would be 5 and 7.

No two consecutive numbers have a product that is an even number. Any two consecutive numbers include one odd number and one even number. The product of one odd number and one even number is always an odd number.
