I would like to know if zero is an odd number or even number. I remembered my kindergarten teacher saying it is an odd number.My mom and sister says it is even number.

This question is in the category K-5. I am in second grade now. My sister is in fourth grade.
I would appreciate the answer for my question



Hi Aliya,

A number is even if it is divisible by 2 without a remainder. So 6 is even since 6 divided by 2 is 3, and 12 is even since 12 divided by 2 is 6, but 7 is not even since 7 divided by 2 is 3 with a remainder of 1. What about zero? Zero divided by 2 is zero with no remainder so zero is even.
