Even Number- An number when divided by 2 gives another whole number.

Odd Number- A number which can NOT be divided by 2 evenly.

Whether A number is even or odd - can be found by looking at its last digit.

Numbers that end with digit of 2, 4, 6, 8 or 0; areevennumbers. Ex. 24, 34, 58, 80.

Numbers that end with digit of 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9; areoddnumbers. Ex. 23, 35, 57, 89.

- Non-integers like 1/3 or 4.20 are neither even nor odd.
- The terms "even number" and "odd number" are only used for whole numbers and/or for integers.

zero contains all the properties of even numbers:

0 is divisible by 2,

0 is neighbored on both sides by odd numbers,

0 is the sum of an integer (0) with itself,

and a set of 0 objects can be split into two equal sets.

Zero also fits into the patterns formed by other even numbers.

Even numbers are number that are divisible by 2. While prime numbers can be divisible only by 1 or itself only. Hence, an even number can never be a prime number.

If 12 is divided evenly into groups of two we will find 2 groups of 6. But we cannot divide 13 evenly into groups of two.

Think of a numbers that are even numbers between forty-one and fifty. How many have
you found?

**They are 42, 44, 46, and 48.**

**20 ÷ 2 = 10**

Each baby has got 10 toys.

See the unit place of number 20. It is 0. So that 20 is even number that is divided
into two equal groups.

If you say the number right after 54 is 55. 55 is an odd number.

Now try the number right after 55. The number after 55 is 56. 56 is an even number.

We got that even number can be found by skip counting of two.
