### Why is and odd number minus an even number odd?

Because the second number from an odd number is odd, and every other number is an odd number. In fact, if you add or subtract an even number with any number, the result keeps the same parity as the other number. So an odd number minus an even number is odd, while an even number minus and even number is even.

### What is an odd number minus and odd number?

Always an even number. Zero is not considered to be positive or negative, but it is considered to be even. zero is undefined. you can't measure nothing. ie it holds no value. aka not even/odd/pos/neg. aka nothing. thus, your answer is correct with the zero exception. Answer Well, an odd number is one that is not evenly divisible by two. Subtracting an odd number from another odd number results in an even number. The jury…

### What is an odd number minus odd number?

All odd numbers are of the form 2n + 1, where n is an integer. So an odd number minus an odd number is (2n+1) - (2m+1) = 2n -2m = 2(n-m). Both n and m are integers, so while we don't know whether n-m is odd or even, we definitely know that it's an integer and that multiplying it by two cannot possibly give an odd number. So an odd number minus an odd…

### Odd minus even?

Let's do a small experiment with a few numbers to see we can find out. 3 - 2 = 1, Odd when the first number is odd and larger than the second number which is even and smaller. 5 - 12 = -7, Odd when the first number is odd and smaller than the second number which is even and larger. Based on the Inverse commutative property, switching the first number for an even would…

### Why is the sum of two odd numbers even?

The first odd number is some even number plus an extra ' 1 '. -- The second odd number is some even number plus an extra ' 1 '. -- Add them. You get (an even number) + (an even number) + ( 2 ). That's an even number. ======================== Another mind-bending , brain-busting way to look at it : -- The first odd number is some even number plus an extra ' 1…

### What is odd integers?

Odd integers are whole numbers that are not evenly divisible by 2. If you count, starting at 1, you will have alternating odd and even numbers. 1 is odd, 2 is even, 3 is odd, 4 is even, 5 is odd, 6 is even, 7 is odd, and so forth to infinity. Negative numbers have the same property (minus one is also odd, etc.) and zero is also an even number.

### Can 5 odd numbers that if you add them make 32?

No. The sum of two odd numbers or two even numbers is an even number. The sum of an even number and an odd number is an odd number. The sum of 5 odd numbers is: ((odd + odd) + (odd + odd)) + odd = (even + even) + odd = even + odd = odd But 32 is an even number, therefore it cannot be the sum of 5 odd numbers.

### 5 odd numbers that add up to 30 without minus?

You will have a long search on your hands because 5 odd numbers will never make 30. Any two odd numbers added together will result in an even number. Any two even numbers also result in an even number. An even and an odd number will always rsult in an odd number, so taking 5 separate odd numbers... odd1 + odd2 = even1 odd3 + odd4 = even2 even1 + even2 = even3 so, after…
