7 is an odd number. If you subtract an odd number minus an even number, you will always get an odd number. There is no way to avoid this.

Multiply two odd numbers Add an even and an odd Subtract an odd and an even

yes you can and get a positive # too.... unless the odd # is more than the even #

Because the second number from an odd number is odd, and every other number is an odd number. In fact, if you add or subtract an even number with any number, the result keeps the same parity as the other number. So an odd number minus an even number is odd, while an even number minus and even number is even.

If you add, subtract, or multiply two even numbers, you will get an even number. If you divide an even number by another even number, you may get an even number, an odd number, or even a fraction.

Correct.

Because the second number from an odd number is odd, and every other number is an odd number.

So an odd number minus an even number is odd, while an even number minus and even number is even.

No. 10 - 2 = 8. The number 8 is even, not odd.
