# Program to check odd or even in C++

Written by

Any number that can be perfectly divisible by 2 is known as an **even number**. While the one which does not divides by 2 perfectly is known as an **odd number**.

Perfectly divisible means, that the number on division produces 0 as remainder.

**Algorithm:**

- Prompt the user to input a number.
- Use the modulo operator (
`%`

) to check if the remainder of the number divided by 2 is 0. - Use an
`if`

statement to determine if the number is even or odd. If the remainder is 0, the number is even. Otherwise, it is odd. - Print a message indicating whether the number is even or odd.
- Exit the program.

The below code checks if the integer entered by the user is even or odd:

```
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main()
{
int num;
//Input the number
cout<<"Enter an integer: ";
cin>>num;
if (num % 2 == 0)//check its divisibility with 2
cout<< num << " is even.";
else
cout<< num <<" is odd.";
return 0;
}
```

**Output:**

```
Enter an Integer:234
234 is even.
```
