## When one number is even and the other number odd is the GCF?

QUESTION: Is the greatest common factor of an odd number and an even number always even? ANSWER: No.

**What are the odd numbers less than 13?**

Let’s learn! 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15 … are sequential odd numbers. Odd numbers have the digits 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9 in their ones place.

### How do you find the even number with an odd number?

An even number can only be formed by the sum of either 2 odd numbers (odd + odd = even), or 2 even numbers (even + even = even). An odd number can only be formed by the sum of an odd and even number (odd + even = odd, or even + odd = odd).

**What is the one number that is even and odd?**

Every integer is either even or odd, and no integer is both even and odd. This includes 0, which is even. Figure out whether 1729 is an odd or even number. Since the remainder obtained on dividing 1729 by 2 is 1, 1729 is an odd number.

#### What is the greatest common factor of two even numbers?

If both y and z are even, the we know 2 is a divisor of both y and z (this is what it means to be even), so the greatest common divisor is at least 2. As for the odd case, however, this can be exact (e.g. gcd(6,8)=2) or very far from the truth (e.g. gcd(32,48)=16).

**What is the HCF of an even number and odd number?**

So there is no fixed number that can be the HCF of an even number and an odd number.

## Why do two odd numbers equal an even?

simple answer is that between every odd number there is one digit difference. so when you add one and one its become two that is even. That’s why the addition of odd numbers become even.

**What are the positive odd numbers less than 10?**

So, the odd positive integers less than 10 are 1, 3, 5, 7, 9.

### What is the even even odd rule?

The phrase even-even-odd stands for the rule: If a real variable to an even exponent (http://planetmath.org/Exponent2) is under a with an even index (http://planetmath.org/Radical6) and, when the is eliminated, the resulting on the variable is odd, then absolute value. signs must be placed around the variable.

**What are all the odd and even numbers?**

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. All the numbers ending with 0,2,4,6 and 8 are even numbers.

#### Is 13 prime composite or neither?

Yes, 13 is a prime number. The number 13 is divisible only by 1 and the number itself. For a number to be classified as a prime number, it should have exactly two factors. Since 13 has exactly two factors, i.e. 1 and 13, it is a prime number.

**What is the greatest number of odd factors of 100?**

Here, factors of 100 are {1, 100, 2, 50, 4, 25, 5, 20, 10} in which odd factors are {1, 25, 5} and the greatest odd factor among all odd factors is 25. Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

## How to find the largest odd number?

Efficient Approach: The efficient approach for this problem is to observe that every even number N can be represented as: Therefore to get the largest odd number we need to divide the given number N by 2 until N becomes an odd number. Attention reader! Don’t stop learning now.

**What is the greatest possible odd factor of 8642?**

Given an even number N, the task is to find the greatest possible odd factor of N. Here, factors of 8642 are {1, 8642, 2, 4321, 29, 298, 58, 149} in which odd factors are {1, 4321, 29, 149} and the greatest odd factor among all odd factors is 4321.
