Let us assume any two integers. We can write them as $2x$and $2y$.
The sum of these two even numbers is$2x + 2y$ .
Now, Take 2 common . That means $2x + 2y = 2(x + y)$.
Inside the parenthesis, we have a sum of two integers. Since the sum of two integers is just another integer then we can let an integer $n$ be equal to $(x + y)$ .
Substituting $(x + y)$ by $n$ in $2(x + y)$, we obtain $2n$ which is clearly an even number. Thus, the sum of two even numbers is even.
