It is not possible to add up an even and uneven number to attain ten, or any other even number.

Consider the following a proof:

a is a even number

b is a uneven number, this means that (b-1) is a even number.

a+b = a + (b-1) + 1

2 even numbers added up always result in an even number. And each time, 1 gets added to that sum, netting a uneven number.

Distribute ten marbles in three plastic cups so that every cup contains an odd number of marbles you must use all ten marbles?

I don't see how this can be done, because when any two odd numbers are added together, the sum is even. If the first two cups each have an odd number the remainder will be 10 - (an even number). Any even number - an even number will equal an even number. Therefore this is not possible.

How can you tell if a number is even without dividing by 2?

Just look at the last digit. If it's even, then the number is even. If it's odd, then the number is odd. (The other digits tell you how many tens, hundreds, etc. Ten, or a multiple of ten - like seventy or eighty - is always even. Same goes for hundreds, thousands, etc.)

What is four eight-digit odd numbers whose last six digits have the sum of ten?

You can work this out pretty quick; just assemble the number in parts. We know the number must be odd, so the last digit has to be an odd one. Let's make it three: 3 Now we need to add five more digits that collectively add up to seven (giving us the sum of ten for our six digits. There's no limit of repetition limit, so we can simply say our numbers are 1, 1, 1, 2 and 2: 111223 That's our last six digits that add up to ten. To get four different eight-digit odd numbers, all we have to do is add four combinations of two digits on the beginning: 99111223 98111223 97111223 96111223

Just add them together, and divide the result by 10. (For the average of a larger set of consecutive odd numbers, it's faster to use the formula for an arithmetic series to add them up. Also, the average of such a set is the same as if you just average the first and the last number.)
