There is no answer. Two odd numbers add up to an even number, and adding an odd number to an even number produces an odd number. Therefore three odd numbers cannot add up to an even number.

Whole numbers ending in 8 are even numbers. All even numbers except for 2 are composite numbers.

It will always give an even number, as adding any amount of even numbers always results in an even number.

The numbers would be 8 + 10 + 12.

50% or one in two because there are three odd numbers and three even numbers, so the chances of rolling an odd or even number are the same

50% or one in two because there are three odd numbers and three even numbers, so the chances of rolling an odd or even number are the same

because in a mean for 7 with three numbers the total of the 3 numbers must be 21 and (even number) + (even number) = (even number) 21 is odd Q.E.D

Every even number is evenly divisible by 2.

50 is an even number. To get even number by adding odd number of numerical values, ie three numbers that too all of them odd seems not at all possible.

The number 2 is the only even prime number - all other even numbers are divisible by 2.

They don't ! Adding an odd number to two odd numbers always results in an odd number !

A die has 6 sides with the numbers 1,2,3,4,5 and 6. Three of those numbers are even. So the probability of rolling an even number is 3 out of 6, or 1 out of 2.

Odd. All numbers ending in three are odd.

Other than 2, no prime numbers are even. So prime numbers can't end in even numbers. After 5, no prime number can end in 5. After 5, all prime numbers end in 1, 3, 7 or 9.

If you want to get an odd number as a result: * Add any even number with any odd number. * You can also add any three odd numbers, or two even number and an odd number.
