## Purpose

## Return value

## Syntax

`=ISEVEN(value)`

*value*- The numeric value to check.

## How to use

The ISEVEN function tests for even numbers. ISEVEN takes one argument, *value*, which should be a numeric value or a cell reference. When *value* is an even number, ISEVEN returns TRUE. When *value* is an odd number, ISEVEN returns FALSE. If *value* is not numeric, ISEVEN will return the #VALUE error. Only the integer portion of *value* is evaluated, decimal values are truncated.

### Examples

The ISEVEN function returns TRUE or FALSE:

```
=ISEVEN(4) // returns TRUE
=ISEVEN(3) // returns FALSE
=ISEVEN(0) // returns TRUE
```

If cell A1 contains 11, the formula below returns FALSE:

```
=ISEVEN(A1) //returns FALSE
```

Only the integer portion of *value* is tested. If *value* is a decimal number, the decimal portion is truncated:

```
=ISEVEN(4.1) // returns TRUE
=ISEVEN(0.33) // returns TRUE
=ISEVEN(7.4) // returns FALSE
```

### Notes

- If
*value*is not numeric, ISEVEN will return the #VALUE error. - Only the integer portion of
*value*is tested, decimal values are truncated. - Use the ISODD function to test for odd numbers.
