Use algebra pieces and mental arithmetic to determine four consecutive odd numbers who sum is 64. Sketch and label your algebra piece model and explain how you solved the problem.

I'd start by dividing 64 by 4.

that would give me 16 but that's not an odd number

math  Ms. Sue, Saturday, June 2, 2012 at 8:53pm
You're right.
What are the four odd numbers closest to 16?
Do they add up to 64?

math  marcus, Saturday, June 2, 2012 at 9:13pm
yes 13,15,17,19 thanks :)
