### Prove: The sum of two even integers is even.

Hello, I don't understand how this is "proven" and if someone could please break this down further for me and "explain it like I'm 5" so to speak that would be much appreciated. Problem: Prove: The sum of two even integers is even. Use a Direct Proof. The Proof: a + b even integers a = 2n b = 2m a +...
