    A seemingly simple Maths question... or not!

    Twisted Evil Mwahahahaha...
    Some of you like Maths, so.... This question might seem easy, but hopefully it isn't... At first, I had a definite answer, then I wasn't so sure. Anyway, here it is:


    The Earth takes 365.242 days to orbit the sun (0.242 of a day extra is the reason we have a leap year). So... is the Number 365.242 odd or even?

    According to this: http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Odd_number an odd number is NOT an integer of two. However, I was taught that if the numbers were people, then an odd number of people would mean that there is a person who is NOT a pair.

    It seems pretty simple. It might be, but I hate maths and I can't be bothered to check... and the answer isn't clear either.

    Odd. Say you have 5, chocolate bars and the just a piece of one. You don't have anoher whole, so technically its odd. Right? Heck I don't know.

    Yeah I think it's odd. Odd numbers are those that if you divide by 2, you get a fraction.
    365.242 / 2 = 182.621 = not a whole number Smile yay!
