Fact! The number zero is an even number.
An even number is one that can be divided by two and still produce a whole number. Zero fits the requirements since halving zero results in zero. But you're not alone if you're perplexed: According to Cambridge University research from the 1990s, people are 10% slower when choosing whether zero is even or not than they are when deciding if two is even.
