## MIDDLE LEVEL SSAT SAMPLE QUESTIONS: Odd & Even Numbers

Here’s a SSAT sample question to help you practice the type of even & odd numbers problem you may find on the quantitative section of the Middle Level SSAT.

**What Are Odd & Even Numbers****?**

Even numbers are numbers that are divisible by the number two (2); when divided by two, the result is a whole number. Odd numbers are those numbers that are not divisible by the number two (2); when divided by two, the result includes a fraction. For example, 6 is an even number because 6 ÷ 2 = 3 (a whole number), but 9 is an odd number because 9 ÷ 2 = 4 1/2 (a fraction).
