If they're not whole numbers, then it is entirely possible.

For instance, we are given the numbers 17.5 and 23.5. These are not whole numbers, because they have a decimal point, and when added, you will get:

17.5 + 23.5 = 41

This is one of the few cases in which the sum of two odd numbers gives yet another odd number.
