The sum

The sum of five consecutive odd numbers is 75. Find out the sum of the second and fourth of them.

Correct result:

s =  30

Solution:

 x+(x+2)+(x+4)+(x+6)+(x+8)=75  5x=55  x=11 s=(x+2)+(x+6)=(11+2)+(11+6)=30 \ \\ x+(x+2)+(x+4)+(x+6)+(x+8)=75 \ \\ \ \\ 5x=55 \ \\ \ \\ x=11 \ \\ s=(x+2) + (x+6)=(11+2) + (11+6)=30
