The two numbers can be thought of as: Smaller Odd Number = x + 1 (Add one to ensure it is an odd number) Larger Consecutive Odd Number = Smaller Number + 2 = x + 1 + 2 = x + 3 We know that Smaller Odd Number + Larger Consecutive Odd Number = 100 (X + 1) + (x + 3) = 100 2x + 4 = 100 2x = 96 x = 48 Smaller Odd Number = 48 + 1 = 49 The smaller odd number is 49. The next consecutive odd number of course is 51.

There are two consecutive odd numbers such that five times the smaller plus twice the greater is 25. What is the smaller number?

Two odd numbers are said to be consecutive if there are no other odd numbers in between. This happens when the first number is odd, and the second number is two more than the first number.

There are none. However, there are two consecutive positive odd numbers: 25 and 27.

No, because every other number in the number line is odd so therefore if you have any number of consecutive numbers you will have at least one odd number (if you're talking about consecutive numbers on a number line).

Adding consecutive pairs of numbers will always turn out to be an odd number. It would have to be consecutive odd numbers: 45 and 47.

There are no four consecutive whole numbers that add up to 35. The sum of two consecutive [whole] numbers is an even number plus an odd number which is an odd number. The sum of two consecutive numbers and the two next consecutive numbers is the sum of two odd numbers which is even, but 35 is odd, so no four consecutive whole numbers cannot add up to 35.

It is 21 because 21+23 = 44

There is no solution. You could do it if the numbers were odd: 25 and 27 are consecutive odd numbers that equal 52.

No two consecutive numbers have a product that is an even number. Any two consecutive numbers include one odd number and one even number. The product of one odd number and one even number is always an odd number.

The consecutive odd number with a product of 12099 are 109 and 111.

This answer cannot be answered because two consecutive numbers consist of one odd number and one even number, and the sum of an odd number plus an even number is always an odd number.

Consecutive even numbers are any even numbers which are separated by one (uneven) number... so that 6 and 8 are consecutive even numbers... as are 22, 24 and 26. Similarly, consecutive odd numbers are numbers which are separated by one (even) number... so that 11 and 13 are consecutive odd numbers... as are 31, 33 and 35.

Consecutive numbers will always total an odd number. Consecutive odd numbers or consecutive primes would be 5 and 7.

No. Odd numbers can be written as the sum of consecutive integers, but some multiples of odd numbers are even.

ODD NUMBERS. If you take two consecutive whole (non zero) numbers then one will be an odd number and the other will be an even number. The sum of an odd number and an even number is always an odd number.

The sum of two odd numbers is even and the sum of an even number and an odd number is odd.So the sum of three consecutive odd numbers is odd but 270 is even.Ergo there are no three consecutive odd numbers that sum to 270.Three consecutive numbers that sum to 270 are 89, 90, 91.Three consecutive even numbers that sum to 270 are 88, 90, 92.

There are no two consecutive odd numbers.

No. The sum of four consecutive integers is two odd numbers plus two even numbers which is an even number. 2001 is an odd number, therefore it cannot be the sum of four consecutive numbers.

There are no two consecutive numbers that equal 70 because the sum of any two consecutive numbers is an odd number.
