3. Nice trick there tchrwill. But too bad it doesn't work if the question ask for an even number of consecutive numbers, you know, like ask for 4 consecutive instead of 3, or 5 or 7 or any odd number.

Find 4 consecutive numbers that sum to 26.

26/4 = 6.5 makign the four numbers 5, 6, 7 and 8.

It does not work for odd numbers, i.e., find four consecutive number that sum to 29. or any odd number.

Finding a set of "n" consecutive numbers that total a given sum "N", given "n" and "N".

Sets of n consecutive numbers.
If both n and N are odd, N/n produces the middle number of the n numbers which is an odd number.
If n is odd and N is even, N/n produces the middle number of the n numbers which is an even number.
If both n and N are even, and N/n produces an even number, there is no solution.
If both n and N are even, and N/n ends in .5 (x.5), the middle two numbers of the n numbers are (x.5 - .5) and (x.5 + .5).
If n ts n is even and N is odd, there is no solution.

Sets of n consecutive even numbers:
N is obviously even.
If n is even, there are N/n numbers on both sides of N/n.
If n is odd, N/n isi the middle number of the n numbers.

Sets of n odd consecutive numbers:
If N/n is even, therre are N/n numbers on both sides of N/n.
If N/n is odd, N/n is the middle number of the n numbers.
