how do you make up the number 52 by adding 2,3 or 4 consectutive numbers i can make 51 and 53 but not 52 help

no mate can only by adding 2,3 or 4 consectutive numbers no more i think its a trick question from my daughters homework thanks anyway

hey guys yes it was marked and the teacher said 52 cannot be done so a trick question!! thanks to all for your help

But it obviously could be done, so maybe she has now learnt something!!! The teacher needs leasons on 'Prime' numbers!

yea maybe, however it was nowhere mentioned about using prime numbers just consectutive maybe they havent covered them yet?

Ok, maybe they haven't..... don't tell me she's 8 years old? Sorry, was thinking along 13 to 16 years old type problems?
