2 is the only even prime number

2 is the only prime number (0 is not a number). A prime number is a number that can only be divided by 1, and itself(which is the prime number) evenly. So, lets take the number 7. What can 7 be divided by and get an even number? Hmm....? Well, 7 can be divided by 1 and the answer is 7... 7 can also be divided by 7 to get on..e. See what I mean ---- So 7's a Prime number!!!Hope I helped

If you take 0 as an even number then 0 and 2 are the even prime numbers. Mostly 0 is not considered as an even number.

How is zero a prime number?
0X1=0
0X2=0
0X3=0 and so on
a prime number has only 2 factors...1 and itself. Zero has an infinite number of factors.
0 might be considered an even number- depends on your definition of "even".  but that is beside the fact that zero isn't prime.  there is an infinite list of numbers that can be multiplied by zero to get zero as a product.  2 is the only even prime number.
