It is called a whole consecutive number.

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.

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.

"Two consecutive numbers" implies that these are whole numbers. Consecutive whole numbers have different parity - that is to say that one is odd and the other even, which means that their sum must be odd. Since 38 is even the problem has no solution.

There are no two consecutive even numbers whose sum is 100. It is easily proved.
