Can you prove that every even number can be divided into two whole numbers?
I ask this because there is potentially an infinite amount of even numbers.

Re: ProofsWhy bother? It's axiomatic. The very definition of an even number requires it to be evenly divisible.

Re: ProofsThe background question is how can you prove something with infinities or infinite numbers involved.

Re: ProofsNo it isn't. The question is how can you prove that a given finite number is divisible by two. The fact that there are infinitely many of such numbers is a red herring. Each of the numbers in the infinite set is subject to the same treatment and if that set consists only of even numbers, then each member of the set is by definition so divisible.

Re: ProofsNo they are not. Numbers and the symbols that represent them are not the same things.
