An Even number.

no...all even numbers that are added together are even.

There cannot be two such numbers.

You get an even number

Find the average. That is, add all of the even numbers together, then divide that by the number of even numbers.

There are never 3 even numbers that add up to an odd number because all of the numbers are even so the result/sum will have to be an even number.

No even numbers add up to 9. The sum of even numbers is always an even number.

Two is the only even prime number. When you add an odd number to another odd number, you get an even number. When you add an even number to an odd number, you get an odd number. 91 is an odd number, therefore the answer is 2 and 89.

You can get another prime (only if one of the numbers added is 2), for example, 101 + 2 = 103. If you add together two odd prime numbers, you will get an even number, which will not be a prime number. (An even number is a number that is divisible by 2; if such a number is greater than 2, it is not a prime number.)

If you add an even number to an even number, you will have an even number as a result.

When you add the numbers together

Yes. Try it right now. Any two odd numbers, add them together.

It is not possible to add together 5 odd numbers to make an even number.

no, b/c you can think of an odd number as an even number plus one. So if you add two odd numbers, you would be adding 2 even numbers plus 2... Let # be even... (#+1) + (#+1) = (#+#) + 2 two even numbers added together are always even

There are no 5 odd numbers that when added together make 30.Two odd numbers added together make an even numberAn odd number plus and even number makes an odd number.From the five odd numbers:Take two of them and add them together getting an even number and four odd numbersAdd another of the odd numbers to this even number and you will have three odd numbersAdd two of these together and you will have one even and one odd number.Finally add these odd and even numbers together and the result will be an odd numberBut 30 is an even number, so cannot be the sum of five (or any odd number of) odd numbers.

When you add two (or any number of) numbers together, the result is called the sum.

Add numbers together

You must add either two odd numbers or two even numbers.

The numbers you add together are called addends. If you add one number to another to form a sum, the number you add on can be called the augend. See the Penguin Dictionary of Mathematics.

An even number

You don't always. 2 + 5 = 7, for example. But all prime numbers other than 2 are odd and two odd numbers always equal an even number when added together.

No difference. Add them all up and divide by the number of items you added together.
