10. Odd and Even Numbers

Overview with Examples: Number System- 2 Quant Notes | EduRev

  • This is a property of Integers. But since our questions are limited to the Whole numbers, we will keep our studies limited to them.
  • By Definition, Even Numbers are those which are divisible by 2. They are the numbers with their unit digit as either 2, 4, 6, 8 or 0. The general expression of Even numbers is 2n where n is a whole number.
  • By Definition, Odd Numbers are those which are not divisible by 2. They are the numbers with their unit digit as either 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9. The general expression of Odd numbers is 2n+1 where n is a whole number.

Certain Operations on Whole Numbers:
(i) Odd ± Odd = Even
(ii) Even ± Even = Even
(iii) Odd ± Even = Odd
(iv) Even ± Even ± Even ........... n terms = Even
(v) Odd ± Odd ± Odd .............. n terms = Even if n is Even, Odd if n is Odd
(vi) Odd × Odd = Odd
(vii) Even × Odd = Even
(viii) Even × Even = Even
(ix) Even × Even × Even ....... n terms = Even
(x) Odd × Odd × Odd ....... n terms = Odd
(xi) (Even)n = Even
(xii) (odd)n = Odd

11. Prime and Composite Numbers

(a) Prime Numbers: Being Prime is a property of Natural Numbers. All those numbers which are divisible by exactly 2 numbers, i.e. itself and unity "1".
Example: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11 etc. 

(b) Composite are the numbers which are divisible by more than 2 numbers, i.e. itself, unity "1" and at least one other.
Example: 4, 6, 8, 9, 10 etc. 

1 is neither Prime nor Composite.

Property of Prime Numbers

  • All Prime numbers greater than 3 are of the form 6n ± 1 but not all numbers of form 6n ± 1 are Prime. This property means when prime numbers greater than 3 are divided by 6 they leave a remainder of 1 or 5.

Try yourself:Which of the following is a prime numbers.

12. Co - Prime Numbers

  • This is a property of a pair or more than two natural numbers. 
  • Two numbers are said to be co-prime if the only number which can completely divide both the numbers is 1. No number other than 1 can divide both the given numbers of the pair. 
  • These numbers in themselves can be prime or composite. 1 is co-prime with all the natural numbers other than 1.
    Example: (3, 7); (4, 15); (3, 10) etc. 
  • A set of numbers is said to be co-prime if their HCF is 1. We will be learning about HCF in the following chapters.
    Example: (3, 7, 11); (4, 15, 10); (3, 10, 8) etc.
