- Any number which is exactly divisible by 2 is called an even number.
- Any number which is not exactly divisible by 2 is an odd number.
More about even and odd numbers:
When a number is exactly divisible by 2, it can be divided into two equal groups. Eg. There are 78 objects placed on a table. To check if its an even number, let me divide it by 2. So 78/2 is equal to 39. Hence there are 39 objects in each group.
Also even numbers end in 0, 2, 4, 6, and 8. Eg. 10, 80, 52, 62, 44, 74, 96, 16, 28, and 88.
This condition is also applicable to large numbers. Irrespective of the number, the last digit can determine if the number is odd or even. Eg. 7,346,239,812 is an even number because the last digit is 2.
An odd number cannot be divided into two equal groups as it is not divisible by 2. eg. 77/2 is equal to 33.5. Thus the number 77 cannot be divided into two equal numbers. Here the numbers end in 1,3,5,7, and 9. Eg. 21, 71, 43, 73, 65, 95, 77, 27, 19, and 69.
All large numbers will also end in the number 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.
