Question #2323

The average of 5 consecutive odd numbers V,W,X,Y and Z is 41.What is the product of V and Z?

Expert's answer

If the numbers are consecutive and odd,

W = V + 2

X =& V + 4

Y =& V + 6

Z =& V + 8

The mean is (V+ (V+2) + (V+4) + (V+6) + (V+8))/5& = V + 4 = 41.

V = 41 - 4& = 37,&

Z = 37 + 8 = 45.

The product of V and Z is 37*45 = 1665.

W = V + 2

X =& V + 4

Y =& V + 6

Z =& V + 8

The mean is (V+ (V+2) + (V+4) + (V+6) + (V+8))/5& = V + 4 = 41.

V = 41 - 4& = 37,&

Z = 37 + 8 = 45.

The product of V and Z is 37*45 = 1665.
