    Yes, 0 is considered even and any number ending in 0 is also even

    You can test it by dividing by 2 since all even numbers will divide by 2 without a remainder

    Zero is even. Any number (in decimal) that terminates in a zero is even.
    If you'd like a deeper understanding, I'd like to give it, so please write back!

    0 is neither a positive or a negative integer and comes under natural numbers. 0 is taken as an even number as it is divisible by 2

    An integer n is divisible by 2 if there is another integer k such that n=2k.

    Since 0=2*0, it follows that 0 is even.
    Since 50=2*25, it follows that 50 is even.
