What is the Rule for Multiplying Odd and Even Numbers?

Here’s some nifty information you can share with your students:

When you multiply an odd number by an even number, the result is always an even number.

Here’s why this rule works:

1. Odd Number: An odd number is any integer that cannot be evenly divided by 2. In other words, when you divide an odd number by 2, you will have a remainder of 1.
2. Even Number: An even number is any integer that can be evenly divided by 2. When you divide an even number by 2, there is no remainder.

Use the dropdown menu to choose between the PDF and editable Google Slide version of this resource. Make sure you remember to remove the answer sheets before printing the worksheets for your students. It is advised you print them double-sided and staple them together for ease of use.
