How do you know whether a number is even?
To start with, the interactivity below gives you one random digit.
Your task is to find the largest possible two-digit even number which uses the computer's digit, and one of your own.
Have a go several times.
How are you deciding which digit to choose?
Can you decribe a strategy that means your first 'guess' is always correct?
Clicking on the purple cog allows you to change the settings.
For a follow-on challenge, choose an odd two-digit target number (select 'Even False' in the settings).
