Zero is an even number.

An even number is a number that can be divided by 2 with no remainder.

0 ÷ 2 = 0

There's no remainder, so zero is even.

Like CPhill said, Wikipedia explains that zero is even.

Also, many other math resources say the same.

Even..........according to Wikipedia:

Zero is an even number. In other words, its *parity*—the quality of an integer being even or odd—is even. The simplest way to prove that zero is even is to check that it fits the definition of "even": it is an integer multiple of 2, specifically 0 × 2. As a result, zero shares all the properties that characterize even numbers: 0 is divisible by 2, 0 is neighbored on both sides by odd numbers, 0 is the sum of an integer (0) with itself, and a set of 0 objects can be split into two equal sets.
