We need to refer to the mathematical definition of the word "even."

The most commonly accepted definition is that a number "a" is even if there exists an integer "n" which makes the following statement true:

a = 2 x n

0 is an integer. So let n = 0 in the above equation and we get:

0 = 2 x 0

So 0 satisfies the mathematical definition for being even.

Please refer to the article in the "related links" section for a discussion about the misconceptions about zero and why people mistakenly think it is not an even number.

The number 0 is proven to be even because the number 1 is odd and 2 is even and 3 is odd and this pattern continues to infinity. So 0 is even.

By definition, a number x is even if x/2 is an integer. Since 0/2 is 0, and 0 is an integer, it follows that 0 is even.
