The sum of 7 odd integers is 217, what is the largest of the integers?
217/7=31=The average of the integers
The 3 nearest odd numbers under 31 is 25,27,29
The 3 nearest odd numbers over 31 is 33,35,37
The sum of 25,27,29,31,33,35,37 is 217.
Now i know that 37 is the largest of the odd integers, this is right too, right?
