What are Even and Odd Numbers?
An even number is a number that can be divided by 2. These are numbers like 4, 6, 8.
An odd number is a number that can’t be divided by 2. These are numbers like 3, 5, 7.
Another way to say this is that you can make equal pairs of numbers it is even. If you can’t make pairs for every number it is odd.
