There are more even numbers than odd numbers

Every odd number is half of an even number.

Some even numbers are not double an odd number.

Therefore there are more even numbers than odd numbers. :showoff:

Yes.

The first number to match the criteria is 100 = 1*99^1+1
Then 200 = 1*198^1+2
Then x*100 = 1*(99x)^1+x
etc.

So all you have to do is check that the number is divisible by 100.

Jealousy much?

There are an infinite number of potential assignments. Why do you want just those that someone else has reserved?

Just reserve some unused ones for yourself and start crunching.
