I have a sequence of numbers - 1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15 I want to get the sum 30 by choosing 3 numbers from this sequence of numbers . The numbers can be repeated. Thank you

As all these numbers are odd, the sum of three of them is odd as well. Is this a lateral-thinking puzzle? For example,

do some of the commas represent decimal points? 1.3+5.7=7, or with some similar trick we may achieve the sum of two being odd.

There are many possible tweaks for this well known question

One of them Could be

11 + 3! + 13 = 30

or

()+15+15

As adding three odd numbers would never give an even number...there must be a trick...

hence this is my best guess.

3!+9+15=30

Also possible to do it these ways:

3*7 + 9

or

3*5 + 15
