9 | Number Detective . 5
Hey there! I'm Chychy.
Welcome to Number Detective.
My beat is the city streets. The job is to bring you the best numbers we can find out there. Then share all sorts of cool stuff about them with you.
9 is an odd number. Not like the weird sort of odd, but just plain odd. See numbers come in two types - odd and even.
Even numbers are evenly divisible by 2 - that is they can be divided by 2 without a remainder. For example 24 / 2 = 12. But 25 / 2 = 12.5. The .5 (or 1/2) is the remainder, and shows that 25 is an odd number.
