## Quick Intro

Excel ISEVEN Function will evaluate a value and return TRUE if a value is an even number and else it will return FALSE. In simple words, you can check that a value is an even number or not.

## Syntax

ISEVEN(number)

• number A value which you wants to evaluate.

• You can also insert a number into function directly by using double quotes or even without it.
• If you specify a non-numeric value it will return the #VALUE! error value.

## Examples

Here I have used different arguments for this function.

1. It will return TRUE if given number is even.
2. It will evaluate negative values in the same way.
3. It will treat 0 as an even number.
4. If you specify a number with decimal points it will ignore decimals & evaluate the integer. In this example, it has truncate .5 & evaluated 2.
5. As excel store dates as serial numbers, it will evaluate them in the same manner.
