### When working with even and odd numbers, the following rules apply:

#### Addition:

even + even = even; even + odd = odd; odd + odd = even

Examples:

2 + 4 = 6 (even); 1 + 2 = 3 (odd); 1 + 3 = 4 (even).

#### Subtraction:

even - even = even; even - odd = odd; odd - odd = even

Examples:

4 - 2 = 2 (even); 2 - 1 = 1 (odd); 3 - 1 = 2 (even).

#### Multiplying:

even × even = even; even × odd = even; odd × odd = odd

Examples:

2 × 4 = 8 (even); 2 × 3 = 6 (even); 3 × 5 = 15 (odd).
