Late Sunday Afternoon

Homework
(Late Sunday afternoon. Time for the homework certain parties have been avoiding all the long, long, long weekend.)

The Princess: Mom, if a number ends in zero is it an odd number?

Songbird: No.

The Princess: You sure?

Songbird: Yes.

The Princess: Pure Luck?

Songbird: (sighs)

Pure Luck: A number ending in zero is even.

The Princess: Thanks!

Songbird: (puts head in hands)

  1. Not being a mathematician by any stretch of the imagination, I would say that perhaps what she heard at school was that zero itself was both odd and even?? But of course other numbers that end in zero, being actually just multiples of 10, are of course even numbers.
    Still…she should have believed you!
