Can not be done! An odd number of odd numbers will ALWAYS add up to an odd number.

An odd number of odd numbers can't add up to an even number.

None. Any two odd numbers add up to an even number.

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.

no

There is no answer. Two odd numbers add up to an even number, and adding an odd number to an even number produces an odd number. Therefore three odd numbers cannot add up to an even number.

There are no four odd numbers that will add up to nineteen.

No 5 odd numbers add up to 100. The sum of any two odd numbers is even. The sum of any two even numbers is even. So the sum of any 4 odd numbers must be even. Take that and add an odd number and the sum must be odd. Therefore, the sum of any 5 odd numbers must be odd. 100 is even. In conclusion: The sum of any odd number of odd numbers is odd.

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 two odd numbers MUST be even. So there is no answer to the question.

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.
