\begin{alignat*}{2}
1 &= 1 &= 1^2 \\
1 + 3 &= 4 &= 2^2 \\
1+3+5 &= 9 &= 3^2 \\
& \vdots & \vdots
\end{alignat*}
So the sum of which odd numbers is represented by $51^2$?

Why are you not capable of thinking about what you are doing? I guess you just prefer complaining.

What an odd question.

Do you really think that in counting from 1 to 51 you will run into no even numbers along the way? So if there are fewer than 51, how many are there?

Hint: odd numbers can be represented by 2k - 1 where k is an integer.

Please concentrate on unanswered questions.
