ODD NUMBER

Let's perform addition on different combinations of odd numbers and even numbers and see the results. We will see how numbers change from odd to even when odd and even numbers are added to each other. Keep a note of the results that you get.

The sum of an even number and an odd number is an odd number. For example, 8+9=17

The difference between an even number and an odd number is an odd number. For example, 22-7=15

The product of an even number and an odd number is an even number. For example, 8 × 5 = 40 (Source: www.cuemath.com)

An odd number is a number that cannot be divided into two equal groups. (Source: www.theschoolrun.com Odd numbers end in 1, 3, 5, 7, 9. (Source:www.theschoolrun.com))

A number which is divisible by 2 and generates a remainder of 0 is called an even number. An odd number is a number which is not divisible by 2. The remainder in the case of an odd number is always “1”.

All the numbers ending with 1,3,5,7 and 9 are odd numbers. For example, numbers such as 11, 23, 35, 47 etc. are odd numbers.

If we divide a number into two groups with an equal number of elements in each, then the number is an even number. In the case of odd numbers, we get a remainder of 1 while grouping.

For a number, if it forms multiple groups of “two” without any remainder, it is an even number. In the case of a remainder, a number is an odd number.
