    there is no biggest even integer =p

    there is a biggest even integer ~p

    let x be this integer

    y=x+2 then y is an even integer(q)


    i don;t get how y is an even integer tho.
    then the next bit of proof says

    y>x so ~p-> y isn't an even integer=~q


    it's just the statement q i don't get because it's clearly not right

    The previous part says that x is even. You get y by adding 2, so you're adding an even number to an even number.

    X is an intiger as stated. 2 is also an intiger. Y is X add 2... this clearly gives you an intiger.
