# What is the product of B and D? If

A, B, C, D are four consecutive odd integers and their average is 42. What is the product of B and D?

- 1860
- 1890
- 1845
- 1677

**Answer:(3) 1845
Explanation:-**

Let be the four consecutive odd numbers are = X, X + 2, X + 4, X + 6.

According to the question,

(X + X + 2 + X + 4 + X + 6)/4 = 42

4X + 12 = 42 x 4

4X = 168 – 12

4X = 156

X = 156/4

X = 39

Therefore, the value of numbers B and D = 39 + 2 and 39 + 6

= 41 and 45

Thus, the product of B & D = 41 x 45 = 1845
