Answer:

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: #" "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, " "8,568," " 7,916," "350#

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

#24,657," " 8,761," "9,453," "865#

In this case: #52 div 2 = 26#
