# Frankenodd Theory Of Odd Numbers

Dr. Frankenodd (brother of Frankenine) observed the following on numbers:

• He took 3 consecutive positive integers and he added them. He noticed that all results were divisible by 3. ${\color{#3D99F6}3 + 4 + 5} = {\color{#D61F06}12} = {\color{#20A900}3 \times 4}$
• He took 5 consecutive positive integers and he added them. He noticed that all the results were divisible by 5. ${\color{#D61F06}43 + 44 + 45 + 46 + 47} = {\color{#20A900}225} = {\color{#3D99F6}5 \times 45}$
• He took 7 consecutive positive integers and he added them. He noticed that all the results were divisible by 7. ${\color{#20A900}22 + 23 + 24 + 25 + 26 + 27 + 28} = {\color{#3D99F6}175} = {\color{#D61F06}7 \times 25}$

Final Conclusion: For $n$ (where $n$ is an odd number) consecutive positive integers the sum will always be a multiple of $n$. Will Dr. Frankenodd theory always works?
