Solution

## The correct options are C 43, 45, 47, 49, 51, 53, 55 The sum of 7 consecutive odd numbers gives 73. To find the odd numbers whose sum is 73, we first divide 73 by 7. ⇒737=72=49 Since 49 is an odd number, it is the middle number of the series. The other odd numbers are the 3 odd ones before and after 49. So the odd numbers whose sum gives 73 are 43, 45, 47, 49, 51, 53, 55.
