You might want to go back to that and look at the nth-child section
again. The first four examples cover that.

http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-selectors/#nth-child-pseudo

tr:nth-child(2n+1) /* represents every odd row of an HTML table */
tr:nth-child(odd)  /* same */
tr:nth-child(2n)   /* represents every even row of an HTML table */
tr:nth-child(even) /* same */
