"Sums of Consecutive Odd Numbers"

Abstract: Which positive integers can be written as a sum of consecutive odd numbers? We will explore this question and see if we can find some interesting results. Perhaps, we will find some conjectures to explore, we may prove some conjectures, we may find easy problems and hard problems.
