# Question #a94c2

Apr 5, 2017

An even number is exactly divisible by $2$.

$52$ is even.

#### Explanation:

An even number is one that is exactly divisible by 2.

The digit in the units place there must be one of: $\text{ "0," "2," "4," "6," } 8$

The value of the digits in the tens, hundreds, thousands place do not have any effect on the divisibility.

The following numbers ARE even:

$13 , 974 , \text{ "8,568," " 7,916," } 350$

The following numbers ARE NOT even (ie they are ODD):

$24 , 657 , \text{ " 8,761," "9,453," } 865$

In this case: $52 \div 2 = 26$
