The sum of 5 odd consecutive numbers is 145. Let the first odd number be n. We have the other 4 odd numbers denoted as: n + 2 n + 4 n + 6 n + 8 Add them all together n + (n + 2) + (n + 4) + (n + 6) + (n + 8) The sum of the 5 odd consecutive numbers equals 145 n + (n + 2) + (n + 4) + (n + 6) + (n + 8) = 145 Combine like terms: 5n + 20 = 145 Using our equation solver, we get n = 25. Using our other 4 consecutive odd numbers above, we get: 27 29 31 33 Adding the sum up, we get: 25 + 27 + 29 + 31 + 33 = 145. So our 5 odd consecutive number added to get 145 are {25, 27, 29, 31, 33}.
