**No, number 55 is not an even number.**- Fifty-five is not an even number, because it can't be divided by 2 without leaving a comma spot.

- Number 55 is an
__odd number__.

- To find the set of even natural numbers, we use 2N where N is any natural number. Any number multiplied with an even number will result in an even number. For example: 0N, 2N, 4N, 6N, ... (where N is any natural number) the result is always an even number.
- The oddness of a number is called its parity, so an odd number has parity 1, while an even number has parity 0.

**About Number 5.**Integers with a last digit as a zero or a five in the decimal system are divisible by five. Five is a prime number. All odd multiples of five border again with the five (all even with zero). The fifth number of the Fibonacci sequence is a five. Five is also the smallest prime number that is the sum of all other primes which are smaller than themselves. The Five is a Fermat prime: 5 = 2 ^ {2 ^ 1} +1 and the smallest Wilson prime. Number five is a bell number (sequence A000110 in OEIS). There are exactly five platonic bodies. There are exactly five tetrominoes.

An even number is an integer which is evenly divisible by two. This means that if the integer is divided by 2, it yields no remainder. Zero is an even number because zero divided by two equals zero. Even numbers can be either positive or negative. You can tell if any decimal number is an even number if its final digit is an even number. An integer that is not an even number is an odd number.

Parity is a mathematical term that describes the property of an integer's inclusion in one of two categories: even or odd. An integer is even if it is evenly divisible by two and odd if it is not even. For example, 6 is even because there is no remainder when dividing it by 2. By contrast, 3, 5, 7, 21 leave a remainder of 1 when divided by 2. A formal definition of an even number is that it is an integer of the form n = 2k, where k is an integer. It can then be shown that an odd number is an integer of the form n = 2k + 1.
