What in the world does this mean: "a good even number"?

Like "a nice round number," the sort of comment one might make when negotiating a price

I have to agree that "even" means something quite specific when it comes to numbers; "round" is much more idiomatic to my ears.

I'm very familiar with the phrase [in Australia]. For example: If someone told me that there were sixty people coming to a wedding I could reply 'That's a good even number'. Now I'm really thinking about this...would I reply the same way if the number was 'sixty five'? Probably not. As 'rspreng' suggests it is akin to ' a nice, round number' or simply 'a good/suitable number'. It's one of those expressions that people around me use without thinking about where it orginated.

It's not odd, obviously. Thereby omitting 1,3,5,7 etc.

Go figure....the owl's losing it again.

confusing phrase...

According to my spanish friend this isn't a phrase that is used, for him ever. Though for some education- un numero par = an even number. un numero impar = an odd number. At least this weird phrase led me to learn that!

Might one say in English "a good round number?"

"Round" does not necessarily mean "even" (divisible by two), though.

September 14, 2013


Yes, that sounds fine to me.

even number is a number that can be divided by 2, like 2,4,6,8.they are called "numero par", while 1,3,5,7 are called "numero impar"

This translation sounds odd. My translation: it is even a good number - difficult out of a context...

"it is even a good number" would be wrong, AFAICT. This "even" (par) is very different from that "even" (incluso).

I would even add "aun" as a translation for EVEN... i've never heard "incluso"... i'm no expert... solo ando sacando ideas y expresiones de cualquier lugar que los tenga.

The English word "even" is used in several different senses or meanings. Beware of one-for-one dictionary translations. This is not like "incluso" or "aun." This sentence uses "par" as an adjective, modifying the noun "número."

Edit: apparently "numéro par" means even number. Nice to know, but maybe the dictionary hints could be improved a bit, because for some time I thought bueno had to do with the 'even' part...

I agree with the "good round number" translation, but tried "even number" to satisfy Duolingo.
