In this worksheet, we will practice writing expressions of the form a+a or a+a+1 to prove whether a number up to 20 is even or odd.

Which of the following sums has an answer that is an even number?
- A8 + 8
- B8 + 8 + 1

For example, we know that 11 is odd because .
Which of these addition sentences shows that 9 is odd?
