There are two consecutive odd numbers such that five times the smaller plus twice the greater is 25. What is the smaller number?

The two numbers can be thought of as: Smaller Odd Number = x + 1 (Add one to ensure it is an odd number) Larger Consecutive Odd Number = Smaller Number + 2 = x + 1 + 2 = x + 3 We know that Smaller Odd Number + Larger Consecutive Odd Number = 100 (X + 1) + (x + 3) = 100 2x + 4 = 100 2x = 96 x = 48 Smaller Odd Number = 48 + 1 = 49 The smaller odd number is 49. The next consecutive odd number of course is 51.

Two odd numbers are said to be consecutive if there are no other odd numbers in between. This happens when the first number is odd, and the second number is two more than the first 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.

There are none. However, there are two consecutive positive odd numbers: 25 and 27.

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.

It is 21 because 21+23 = 44

There are no two consecutive odd numbers.

There is no solution. You could do it if the numbers were odd: 25 and 27 are consecutive odd numbers that equal 52.

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.

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).
