Math 113 August 29th, 2018 In class notes We start with a true or false statement: The sum of any two odd counting numbers will be divisible by four. After this statement, we can test out the statement: 5+7=12 Twelve is divisible by four, so that’s true. Let’s try some others. 9+3=12 Once again twelve is divisible by four. 13+3=16 Sixteen divided by four is four so that works. 21+11=32 Thirty-two divided by four is eight.
