Decimal are not. But negative numbers can be odd or even.

Only integers are even or odd. We do not call fractions, irrational numbers, imaginary numbers, and so on either even or odd. If a decimal is equal to an integer (for example 24.0 is equal to 24), then it is even if the integer is even or odd if the integer is odd. If a decimal is not equal to an integer (for example 24.1 is not an integer), then it is neither even nor odd.

Decimal numbers generally are not considered to be odd or even. Only integers are odd or even. So on that basis, 3.6 is not an odd number, but neither is it an even number.

Only integers are even or odd. If a decimal is equal to an integer (for example 24.0 is equal to 24), then it can be even or odd. If a decimal is not equal to an integer (for example, 24.1 is not an integer), then it is neither even nor odd.

The product of multiplication results in a number that has all of the factors of the two numbers being multiplied. All even numbers have the prime factor 2. Since no odd number has the factor 2, no product of those numbers can have it. So: - Odd numbers times odd numbers produce odd numbers. - Odd numbers times even numbers produce even numbers. - Even numbers times even numbers produce even numbers.

They are even and odd numbers respectively

24.5 is neither even nor odd because it is a decimal number. Even and odd numbers are integer numbers, meaning whole numbers without any decimal or fractional part.

That's a more or less arbitrary name given to numbers, to distinguish whether they are divisible by 2 (even) or not (odd).

yes

If you are talking about decimal as in base 10, than yes. If you are talking about decimal as in place value, than no, because numbers that are not whole numbers can not be grouped into even and odd.

You can't. Only whole numbers are odd or even.

All even numbers are divisible by 2 with no remainder. Why are the numbers 1.3499,2.4596,4.4817 classed as even numbers? And 1.8221, 3.3201 are classified as odd numbers in numerical integration

Decimal numbers cannot be defined as either odd or even.

Decimal numbers generally are not considered to be odd or even. Only integers are odd or even. So on that basis, 3.6 is not an odd number, but neither is it an even number.

An even number can be divided by 2 evenly. An odd number will have a remainder of 1 when divided by 2. Decimals are neither.
