- Is zero odd or even? 11 answers
I have noticed that it is useful to treat $0$ as an even number, and do so. Especially for patterns, puzzles, etc, if I develop a formula that works for something, and uses the parity of the number, then for my formula to work for something, I usually need to treat $0$ as even.
Is $0$ treated as an even number?
