Meet numbie 2

Numbie 2 is a very fair-minded Numbie. It can always see both sides of a situation, the good and bad side of any problem. Numbie 2 is the first prime number and the only one that is even. Some would say Numbie 2 is very even-handed. That’s why it is also a very wise Numbie. Another interesting thing about Numbie 2 is that it is the first “even number” and it is the only “even number” to be included in that special group of numbers called “primes” as they are normally a very odd group of Numbies!!! This elegant Numbie has a very important place, as it is a part of every other number. You might say it is responsible for half of all Numbies, all the way to infinity. The only other Numbie that has this sort of power is Numbie 1. In addition, when Numbie 1 and Numbie 2 work together, anything is possible; there is no number these two can’t make!

Here are Numbie 2’s first 15 cousins including itself: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, and 30. Can you find the next five cousins of Numbie 2?

Can you guess the next numbie?

Congratulations! You made it to the last numbie!!
