It is impossible.

The answer depends on how many odd numbers are being added together: even numbers make no difference.If the count of odd numbers is odd then the total is odd, andff the count of odd numbers is even then the total is 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.

the products

Look at the first 2 of these prime numbers. They cannot be even for then they would be divisible by 2, so not prime. Add them together. Two odd numbers added together make an even. Subtract this even number from 50 (also even) so the third number must be even. There is no way of adding 3 prime numbers together to make an even number.

No. Two odd numbers added together always give an even number. Two even numbers added together always give an even number. An odd and an even number added together always give an odd number. So, if we have 5 odd numbers - a, b, c, d and e a + b will be even c + d will be even So if (a + b) + (c + d) is even, adding e to that will have to be an odd number - but 50 is even, so it cannot be done.

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.
