There isn't one, since there's an infinite number of negative odd numbers. The smallest positive odd number is 1.

### Three times the smalles of theree consecutive odd numbers decreased by 7 equals twice the largest one. find the numbers

The hardest part of a word problem is translating it into the equation or equations you need. This one needs just one equation.

Let N = the smallest number. Since they are consecutive, the next ones will be N+2 and N+4. (It doesn't matter that they are odd, just that each one is 2 greater than the one before.)

So, N = the smallest number and N+4 = the largest. Translate the problem (3 times the smallest, N, decreased by 7, equals twice the largest, N+4) into numbers:

3N - 7 = 2 (N+4)

Then it's simple to find N:

3N - 7 = 2N +8

3N - 2N = 8 + 7

N = 15

The three numbers then are 15, 17, 19. Check the answer by seeing if they fit the original problem. 3 X 15 = 45, 45 - 7 = 38, 2 X 19 = 38, so we got the right values.

### The smallest of 3 consecutive odd integers is added to twice the largest, giving a result 24 less than 5 times the middle. Find the integers

Let x be the smallest integer, then x+2 is the middle and x+4 the largest one. Resolve the equation

x + 2 * ( x + 4 ) = 5 * ( x + 2 ) - 24
=> x = 11

The three numbers are therefore 11, 13, and 15. The fact they are odd is irrelevant for finding the answer.

### Out of 1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15,17,19 pick up any 5 nos. to make a total of 50.

Several ways to do this. 1, 5, 13, 15 17 is one of them.

(1 x 5) + 13 + 15 + 17

Workings:

(1 x 5) = 5

5 + 13 + 15 + 17 = 50.

- You cannot add five odd numbers together to make 50. Five odd numbers added together will always be an odd number.
- You cannot add four odd and take an odd number away as this will also total an odd number.

Therefore 2 of the numbers must be multiplied as this enables you to effectively add four odd numbers together to total an even number.

Hope this helps. Got any more?

### I want to divide 40 number of persons in a 9 groups. the condition is only odd number of person in every groups. please help me....

It can't be done, Nine is an odd number. An odd number of groups, each with an odd number of people, totals an odd number of people. Forty is an even number, so at least one group must have an even number of people.

### Find the three consecutive numbers? such that the smallest is 57 less than three times the largest

Let the three consecutive numbers be x, x+1, x+2.

Now, the smallest is 57 less than three times the largest...

=> x + 57 = 3(x + 2)
=> x + 57 = 3x + 6
=> 2x = 57 - 6
=> 2x = 51
=> x = 25.5

=> x, x+1, x+2 = 25.5, 26.5, 27.5

So, the three consecutive numbers are 25.5, 26.5, 27.5.

parse var filtered smallest filtered
do while (filtered > ' ')
