# (i) Express 49 as the sum of 7 odd numbers.

(ii) Express 121 as the sum of 11 odd numbers

**Solution:**

We need to express 49 as sum of 7 odd numbers and 121 as sum of 11 odd numbers

We know that the sum of successive odd natural numbers is n^{2}

(i) 49 = (7)^{2}

Therefore, 49 is the sum of first 7 odd natural numbers

49 = 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13

(ii) 121 = (11)^{2}

Therefore, 121 is the sum of first 11 odd natural numbers

121 = 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13 + 15 + 17 + 19 + 21
