Any pair of consecutive numbers will have an odd total. 10 and 12 are consecutive even numbers that total 22.

16 and 17 are the first two consecutive WHOLE numbers. Consecutive has no meaning for the real numbers since a another can be found between any two.

There are an infinite number of prime numbers which are consecutive odd integers. Choose any natural number n. Take all primes up to any number n, take their product, and add 1 and subtract 1 from it. These 2 numbers are consecutive odd integers. eg 2*3*5*7 = 210 209 and 211 are primes which are consecutive odd integers.

Numbers which are a power of 2 (1,2,4,8,16,32,64,...) cannot be made by summing consecutive numbers.

If you add two to any even number you will get the next consecutive even number. The simplest way would be to start with the number two, so the sequence would be 2,4,6.

I am not sure if any two consecutive numbers can add up to an even number.

No answer exists. Any 2 consecutive numbers will produce an odd sum.

There are no such numbers. If S is the sum of any 4 consecutive integers then S = 2 (mod 4) In other words, any four consecutive integers add up to an even number that is NOT dvisible by 4.

That doesn't work. The number has to be divisible by three. Any three consecutive numbers add up to a multiple of three.

Pick a number. Add or subtract 1 to or from it.

EVERY three consecutive numbers add to a multiple of 3: Proof: numbers are n, n + 1 and n + 2. The total is 3n + 3 or 3(n + 1) This means that for any three consecutive numbers, the total is 3 times the middle number.

Any 2 consecutive will always add up to an odd number and the number given is an even number

Although not specified as such, "consecutive" requires the numbers to be integers. Two pairs literally means four numbers but there are not four consecutive integers that add up to to 5280. 1318 + 1319 + 1320 + 1321 = 5278 and 1319 + 1320 + 1321 + 1322 = 5282. Four consecutive numbers must add up to an even number that is not a multiple of 4. If by two pairs, the question meant ONE pair (!!), again there is no answer since the sum of any pair of consecutive numbers must be an odd number.

Defining "consecutive" as "following continuously in unbroken or logical sequence," it is possible to have many different types of consecutive things: consecutive days, months, odd numbers, even numbers, etc. The list you have is consecutive, they are consecutive multiples of ten.
