# Getting an even number in several ways?

If the number is even, is it true that it can be obtained with non-equal even terms?
Example: 8=4 + 4, 8=6 + 2
There is a reference to the properties of an even number, but an even number can have one property and not two, or am I mistaken?
• Wrong.2 and 4 so you do not get.
Any other can be represented as
n=(n-2) + 2

• Hungry5, under the conditions there was no naturalness(non-negativity) of numbers, so it’s quite a `2=-274 + 276`

The unequal `-274! == 276` is even terms.

There is a reference to the banal logic and method of proof/refutation of statements.
Any number, including even, can be represented as its sum with zero
n=n + 0
Since 0 is an even number, then for n ≠ 0 the assertion holds.For zero, we can take a pair of non-zero even numbers with a different sign
0=n +(- n), n ≠ 0
Thus, for zero, the statement is also satisfied;therefore, it is true.
• Sorry, forgot to say.Anything, just not 0.
I faltered at the number 2, it is even, but it can only be obtained using odd numbers.

• Perverted Robot, Then it’s enough to take two numbers - n-2 and 2 – Amused Angelfish Aug 19 '18 at 15:17
Verno.There are several ways.Only `infinity minus 1`:

Take any random integer.Multiply by 2.This is the first even.
Checking that the result is not equal to half the original number - this is the only exception.
The second even is to subtract the first from the initial one.

The difference of two even numbers is an even number.We guarantee the inequality of the components by checking the single case above.
• Take any random integer

I got a zero :-)

• [[Rsa97]], we live in a free country, why not take a zero?

- For the first table fell Zero! Congratulations to the man in the cylinder!
