    Hi angelbabe1,

    See if this site helps: Classification of Numbers

    The numbers you have been given don't seem to have enough variety to classify, though. They're all the same. And shouldn't there be commas to separate them? I may not be understanding what it is you're trying to do either. Seek further clarification.

    a) Even, positive, integer.

    That should give you an idea of what to say about the other numbers.
