## imron07 Group Title Hi everyone, what does it mean when they say x is evenly divided by y? one year ago one year ago

1. ParthKohli Group Title

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

2. ParthKohli Group Title

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

3. ParthKohli Group Title

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 :)

5. ParthKohli Group Title

You're welcome!

@ParthKohli : Z is integer?

7. ParthKohli Group Title

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