Subject: Is zero an even or odd number? Name: Christian P. Hansen Who is asking: Other Level: All
Question: I have seen some encyclopedias define "even" as any even number in the sequence 2,4,6,8... discounting both zero and negative numbers. However, an even number is by definition an integer that when divided by two does not have a remainder. Since 0/2= 0 with a remainder of 0, zero is indeed an even number. Patrick |
