An even number can be divided by 2 evenly. An odd number will have a remainder of 1 when divided by 2. 12.5 is neither.

### 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.

### 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.
