1. 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.

ah thank you so much
4. X is an intiger as stated. 2 is also an intiger. Y is X add 2... this clearly gives you an intiger.
