    This means that \(x\) is \(\textbf{divisible}\) by \(y\).

    If you want a rigorous definition,\[\text{x is evenly divided by y}\implies x = ny \wedge n \in \mathbb{Z}\]

    For example, 4 is divisible by 2. 6 is divisible by 3. 100 is divisible by 25. etc

    @ParthKohli : Heheh, thanks. I thought the word "evenly" has something to do with even number :)

    Yeah, \(\mathbb{Z}\) is the set of integers in set theory.
