Solution
= A whole number is a set of numbers that include 0,1,2,3,..........upto infinity
= A number evenly divisible by 2 means that remainder is 0 when the number is divided by 2
Rule
If a whole number ended with 0,2,4,6 or 8, then the number is evenly divisible by 2.
a.) 6
= 6 is a whole number that ends with 6 also
Therefore, according to rule, it is evenly divisible by 2
b.) 13
= 13 is a whole number that ends with 3
Therefore, according to rule, it is not evenly divisible by 2
c.) 14
= 14 is a whole number that ends with 4
Therefore, according to rule, it is evenly divisible by 2
d.) 18
= 18 is a whole number that ends with 8
Therefore, according to rule, it is evenly divisible by 2
e.) 25
= 25 is a whole number that ends with 5
Therefore, according to rule, it is not evenly divisible by 2
f.) 32
= 32 is a whole number that ends with 2
Therefore, according to rule, it is evenly divisible by 2
g.) 50
= 50 is a whole number that ends with 0
Therefore, according to rule, it is evenly divisible by 2
h.) 77
= 77 is a whole number that ends with 7
Therefore, according to rule, it is not evenly divisible by 2
Answer
Whole numbers that will be circled are 6, 14, 18, 32 and 50
Rule
If a whole number ended with 0,2,4,6 or 8, then the number is evenly divisible by 2.
