How To: Add consecutive odd numbers

Add consecutive odd numbers

Professor ElvisZap teaches you about adding consecutive odd numbers. You can learn this faster by drawing squares near the numbers themselves. If you are doing 2x2, draw 4 squares. They will be arranged in columns of two. For 9 you will draw 3 columns of 3. 16 are 4 columns of 4. 16 is also 1+3+5+7, which are all odd consecutive numbers. 25 are 5 columns of 5, but also 1+3+5+7+9. If you start counting 1 as the zeros odd number, then 3 as the first odd number, the nth odd number will be (2xN+1).
