Sep 25, 2019 at 16:39 comment added Patricia Shanahan @WaiHaLee I did not apply the odd/even test to any decimal numbers, only hexadecimal. A hexadecimal digit is even if, and only if, the least significant bit of its binary expansion is zero.

Nov 22, 2017 at 16:22 comment added Patricia Shanahan To the person whose edit I just rolled back: I consider code quotes appropriate for quoting code. This answer, being language-neutral, does not contain any quoted code at all. Numbers can be used in English sentences and that does not turn them into code.
