Subject: Re: Zero as an even number
According to the 6th grade Connected Mathematics booklet "Prime Time," zero is an even number. Several reasons are given: zero divided by two gives a remainder of 0; zero is beside an odd number which makes it even since numbers distributed on the number line as odd, even, odd,... . I had always thought of zero as neither odd nor even but these two reasons do make sense.
