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.

The consecutive odd number with a product of 12099 are 109 and 111.

Consecutive even numbers are any even numbers which are separated by one (uneven) number... so that 6 and 8 are consecutive even numbers... as are 22, 24 and 26. Similarly, consecutive odd numbers are numbers which are separated by one (even) number... so that 11 and 13 are consecutive odd numbers... as are 31, 33 and 35.

As there are two consecutive integers then one must be an even number and the other an odd number. If the numbers are y and y + 1 then if y is even, y + 1 is odd and if y is odd then y + 1 is even.The product of an even integer and an odd integer is always even.The question therefore has no answer.121 = 112 but this is not what the question has asked.

The sum of three odd numbers is odd but 270 is even, therefore there are no three odd numbers that add to 270. Similarly the product of two of more odd numbers is odd but 270 is even, therefore there are no three odd numbers that multiply together to get 270.

If you take three consecutive odd (or three consecutive even) numbers, one of the three will always be a multiple of 3.If you take three consecutive odd (or three consecutive even) numbers, one of the three will always be a multiple of 3.If you take three consecutive odd (or three consecutive even) numbers, one of the three will always be a multiple of 3.If you take three consecutive odd (or three consecutive even) numbers, one of the three will always be a multiple of 3.

There is no set of 3 consecutive odd numbers whose product is 6,873. However, there is a set of 3 consecutive odd numbers whose sum is 6,873: 2289, 2291, and 2293.

The sum of two odd numbers is even and the sum of an even number and an odd number is odd.So the sum of three consecutive odd numbers is odd but 270 is even.Ergo there are no three consecutive odd numbers that sum to 270.Three consecutive numbers that sum to 270 are 89, 90, 91.Three consecutive even numbers that sum to 270 are 88, 90, 92.

There are no two consecutive whole numbers that sum to 142.With two consecutive whole numbers, one is even and the other odd, and their sum will be odd, but 142 is even.Two consecutive even numbers that sum to 142 are 70 and 72.

When multiplied together, an odd number and an even number will always produce an odd number. Two consecutive numbers consist of one odd number and one even number, so their product is always an odd number. N-n-n-no! Any number multiplied by an even number yields an even product. Ever;y even number can be expressed as 2*M for some M. If we multiply 2*M by Y, the product is 2*M*Y = 2*(M*Y) which is even. So the right answer is: They don't! The product of two consecutive numbers is always even. Regards, Bill Drissel

Any two odd numbers will have an odd product and an even sum.

It will alway be even, because it will always be the product of an odd and an even number, which is always 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.

yes

No. Odd numbers can be written as the sum of consecutive integers, but some multiples of odd numbers are even.

Any two consecutive numbers must comprise one odd and one even number, so their product must be even. Any three consecutive numbers must include two consecutive numbers so the result still applies.

There is no set of four consecutive numbers (odd or even) whose sum equals 169.

Do you mean what two consecutive odd numbers gives a product of 195? If so then: 13*15 = 195

The sum of consecutive integers will always be odd. Consecutive odd numbers will be even. 299 + 301 = 600

There are no two consecutive odd numbers.

No

No such numbers exist; the product of two odd numbers is always odd.

The product of two odd numbers is never even.
