Task: Python if Example Even Odd

Write a program to input a number and check it whether it is even or odd number. Python if example program to check a number is even or odd

### Source Code

```#  Write a Python If Example Program
#  Even Odd to input a number and check it whether
#  it is even or odd

num = int(input("Enter a number to check for Even / Odd:"))

if num%2==0:
print(num, ' is Even')
else:
print(num, ' is Odd')
```

## Output

```
Enter a number to check for Even / Odd:12
12  is Even

Output from a second sample run

Enter a number to check for Even / Odd:109
109  is Odd

```

## How Python if Example Program Even Odd Number

• First of all we use an input() function to get input from the user.
• The user will input a number.
• The number is in the numeric string form.
• We convert it into integer number using the int() function
• Now we use Python if else statement to check for even or odd.
% operator is used to take remainder of the division of number by two.
• if the remainder of this division is zero then the number is even, otherwise the number is odd. the remainder will be 1 if the number entered is odd.

### Source code Using a function even()

```#  Write a Python If Example Program
#  Even Odd to input a number and check it whether
#  it is even or odd

def  even(num):
if num%2==0:
print(num, ' is Even')
else:
print(num, ' is Odd')

def main():

num = int(input("Enter a number to check for Even / Odd:"))
# call the even() function
even(num)

# call main()

main()
```
• First of all we use an input() function to get input from the user.
• The user will input a number.
• The number is in the numeric string form.
• We convert it into integer number using the int() function
due to call statement, this number is passed to even(num) function
• Now we use Python if else statement to check for even or odd.
% operator is used to take remainder of the division of number by two.
• if the remainder of this division is zero then the number is even, otherwise the number is odd. the remainder will be 1 if the number entered is odd.
