Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet, we will learn how to express an odd number as "double a number plus one" and then identify whether the result is an odd or even number.


For Example:

Write this odd number as "double a number plus one". Then say whether the answer is odd or even. 

209   =   2  x    ______   +  1



If we take one away from 209, we get 208. Then halve this number and get 104.

209   =   2  x  104  +  1, which is the same as "double 104 plus one".


The number 104 is an even number, since it is divisible by 2.
