i think c
No, it's B. plug in odd numbers for all of the variables, and you get B every time
First fact needed: ODD + ODD = EVEN This is always true. And, ODD + EVEN = ODD. So, a + b + c is (ODD + ODD + ODD) = (ODD + ODD) + ODD = EVEN + ODD = ODD.
Now, we need more facts. (EVEN)(EVEN) = EVEN and (EVEN)(ODD) = EVEN; that is, multiplying by an even number always given you an even number. Do you see how that can help you with a(b + c)?
I'll get you started: ODD(ODD + ODD) = ?
RIght... ODD(ODD + ODD) = ODD(EVEN) = EVEN. Yep!
It's B, I've already answered. Plug in numbers, and you'll see I'm right
Now, how about the others? (Perhaps there is more than one that must always be even...)
i agree with whovianchick
Plugging in #s is a good approach. Sometimes it's useful to use some other ideas, too.
Yep!! I do have a tendency to ramble ... sorry! Have a good day!
no prob :)
