## Homework Statement

Use direct proof to prove "The product of any two even integers is a multiple of 4."

## Homework Equations

definition of even is n=2k

## The Attempt at a Solution

My proof is going in circles/getting nowhere.

So far I have (shortened): By definition even n=2k, n=2j for some integer k

2k(2j) = 4kj = 4(kj) kj is an integer because k and j are integers

and the product of two integers is an integer

Not sure where to take it from there or if I even set the proof up correctly!
