Check if a number is odd or even in Python

If a number is divisible by 2, it is even, else, it is odd. You can use the modulus operator % to compute the remainder. If the remainder is not zero, the number is odd.

Example 1

Code

num = 12

if num%2 == 0:
    print("It is even")
else:
    print("It is odd")

Output

It is even

Example 2 - Asking for user input

Code

num = int(input("Enter a number ==> "))

if num%2 == 0:
    print("It is even")
else:
    print("It is odd")

Output

Enter a number ==> 9
It is odd

The above code uses the input() function to ask for user input.
