Homework Help: _+_+_= 30 fill in the gaps using...

  1. Feb 17, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    _+_+_= 30
    (Fill the gaps using 1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15)

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I tried to go with x+y+z= 30
    Then tried substituting values
    This is not an official question. Just something my friend asked me and I was curious. Please don't take any offense. Thank you very much for helping.

    Is the sum of three odd numbers going to be odd or even ? Why am I asking ?

    The values will never add up to 30. Used a computer program to run this

    Welcome to the PF, BTW. What language did you code this up in?

    The problem is simple enough that a computer program is not needed.
