Even integer

(Redirected from Even)

An even integer is any integer which is a multiple of $2.$ The even integers are $\ldots, -4, -2, 0, 2, 4, \ldots$; specifically, note that $0$ is even. Every even integer can be written in the form $2k$ for some unique integer $k$.

The sum and difference of any two integers with the same parity is even. The product of any two even integers is not only even but is also divisible by $4.$ The sum of an even integer and an odd integer is odd.

Since every even integer is divisible by $2,$ $2$ is the only prime even integer.

The number of even integers are in the interval $(0, x)$ is equal to $\left\lfloor\frac {|x|}{2}\right\rfloor+1$
