Himalayan is right !

according to OG , zero is even

R*S+R =

e=even
o=odd

we have two options:

(1) e*o+e = e
(2) o*e+o = o

since the stem states that R*S+R =odd then we will choose (2) and S must be even.

RS+R = R(S+1) --> which is ODD
Now this implies that R is odd AND S+1 is odd. which means S is even

Ans B.

If r and s are integers and rs + r is odd, which of the following must be even ?

A. r
B. s
C. r + s
D. rs - r
E. r^2 + s

Given that rs + r is odd --> \(rs + r =r*(s+1)=odd\). For the product of two integers, r and s+1, to be odd both must be odd. Theretofore, r and s+1 are odd, which means that r is odd and s is even.

Answer: B.

Hi All,

This question is perfect for TESTing VALUES.

We're told that R and S are integers and that (R)(S)+R = ODD. We're asked which of the 5 answers MUST be even...

IF....
R = 1
S = 2
(1)(2)+1 = 3

Answer A: R = 1 NOT even
Answer B: S = 2 This IS EVEN
Answer C: R+S = 3 NOT even
Answer D: RS-R = 2-1 = 1 NOT even
Answer E: R^2+S = 1+2 = 3 NOT even

Final Answer:
[Reveal] Spoiler:
B

If r and s are integers and rs + r is odd, which of the following must be even ?

If r is factored out to rewrite this as r (s + 1), we can see it as a product of two parts, r and s + 1. For their product to be odd, r must be odd and s + 1 must be odd. We also know that even + odd = odd. For s+1 to be odd, s must be even since 1 is odd.
A. R
B. s
C. r + s
D. rs - r
E. r^2 + s
