Yes - while multiplying odd numbers by even numbers will always produce an even result.

That's impossible. Adding up an odd number of odd numbers will give an answer that is an odd number. 50 is an even number. So adding up 5(5 is an odd number) odd numbers will not give 50, 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.
