### Deebu R

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.

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.
