The next odd integer after 40 is 41

Every integer is either even (divisible by 2) or odd (not divisible by 2). Since an even number plus 1 is odd and an odd number plus one is even, because 1 does not divide 2. We know (n + 4) is odd. The next integer is (n + 4 + 1) = (n + 5), because an odd number plus 1 is even, (n + 5) is even. The integer after (n + 5) is (n + 6), since (n + 5) we know is even, (n + 6) must be odd. Since (n + 6) is the smallest integer that is greater than (n + 4) and is odd, so (n + 6) is the next odd integer.

An even integer is a number that is a multiple of 2. If n is an even integer, the next consecutive even integers are n+2, n+4 and so on.

The greatest integer that is less than -4 is -5. -5 is next largest integer, even though it has the smallest absolute value for the set of number <-4. This is because the less negative a value is, the greater it is, even though it's numeric component '5' is not the largest.
