Is zero an odd or even number?

Asked by stanleybmanly (22361points) September 11th, 2016 from iPhone

The 7 year old neighbor has been asking for months to help pick apples from the tree. Today is her appointed opportunity, and we’re both at it. Actually, I just watch for the most part and shift the shopping bags and ladders. This kid talks up a blue streak and she’s about as funny as as they come. In any event, midstream in all that tumbling verbiage came a pause, as she cocked an eye around a branch to face me and ask the question

I think technically it’s even as it’s a multiple of 2 and therefore shares all the traits of even numbers.

It is a “place setter” to keep -1 and +1 from fighting.

It lies between 2 odd numbers so it must be even.

It is evenly divisible by 2 (0/2 = 0) so it is even.

Likewise, it is not prime because it is evenly divisible by pretty much everything (0/x = 0 when x != 0).

Neither. It’s the black hole between -1 and +1.

It is a very odd number that happens to be even.

Zero is odd in that thou shalt not divide by zero.

Strauss's avatar

Zero is an even number and an odd ball.

Actually if you divide by zero you get infinity, sort of.

monthly's avatar

I know. That’s why I said “sort of”.
