# What is the Product of C and E? If

The average of 5 consecutive odd numbers A, B, C, D and E is 95. What is the product of C and E?

- 9215
- 9405
- 9210
- 9603

**Answer: (2) 9405**

**Explanation:**–

Let the 5 consecutive odd numbers A = X, B = X + 2 , C = X + 4, D = X + 6 & E = X + 8.

The average of 5 consecutive odd numbers = 95 (Given in the question)

Then, (X + X + 2 + X + 4 + X + 6 + X + 8) /5 = 95

5 X + 20 = 95 x 5

5 X = 475 – 20

5 X = 455

X = 455 /5

X = 91

Then, the value of C = X + 4 = 91 + 4

= 95

And the value of E = X + 8 = 91 + 8

= 99

Then, the product of C and E = 95 x 99

= 9405

Hence, the answer is (2) 9405.
