Problem

Two integers have a sum of 26. when two more integers are added to the first two, the sum is 41. Finally, when two more integers are added to the sum of the previous 4 integers, the sum is 57. What is the minimum number of even integers among the 6 integers?


Solution

So, x+y=26, x could equal 15, and y could equal 11, so no even integers required here. 41-26=15. a+b=15, a could equal 9 and b could equal 6, so one even integer is required here. 57-41=16. m+n=16, m could equal 9 and n could equal 7, so no even integers required here, meaning only 1 even integer is required; A.
