# What is the sum of any two?

# (a) Odd numbers (b) Even numbers

Even numbers are those numbers that can be divided into two equal groups or pairs and are exactly divisible by 2 such as, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10...

Odd numbers are whole numbers that cannot be exactly divided by 2 such as, 3,5,7,9...

## Answer:

## (a) The sum of any two odd numbers is always an even number

## (b) The sum of any two even numbers is always an even number

Let's look into some examples to understand this

**Explanation:**

(a) When we add two odd numbers, the sum is always an even number

For example, the sum of 3 and 5 is 8, and 8 is an even number.

(b) When we add two even numbers, the sum is always an even number.

For example, the sum of 4 and 6 is 10, and 10 is an even number.

### Thus, (a) The sum of any two odd numbers is always an even number. (b) The sum of any two even numbers is always an even number.
