3 and 11.

The numbers are: 2+7 = 9 and 2*7 = 14

For the product to be zero, one of the numbers must be 0. So the question is to find the maximum sum for fifteen consecutive whole numbers, INCLUDING 0. This is clearly achived by the numbers 0 to 14 (inclusive), whose sum is 105.

Let the first number be x and the second number is 27 − x. [As the sum of both the numbers is 27] Therefore, their product = x (27 − x) It is given that the product of these numbers is 182. x (27 – x) = 182 x2 + 27x - 182 = 0 Changing the signs on both sides we get,x2 - 27x + 182 = 0 Factorizing we get , 13 and 14 are the numbers whose sum is 27 and product is 182 x2 – 13x – 14x + 182 = 0 = x(x – 13) – 14 (x – 13)= 0 = (x – 13) (x – 14) = 0 Either x – 13 = 0 or x − 14 = 0 i.e., x = 13 or x = 14 If first number = 13, then Other number = 27 − 13 = 14 If first number = 14, then Other number = 27 − 14 = 13 Therefore, the numbers are 13 and 14.

The numbers are 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16.
