# C++ Program to check whether a number is positive or negative

## Program to Check whether a number is Positive or Negative

Here we will discuss how to check whether a number is positive or negative in C++ programming language.

• A number is positive if it is greater than 0
• A number is negative if it is less than 0
• To check this we use if else statement
• If the condition  n>0 is true then the number is positive
• Otherwise the number is negative

Note: 0 is neither positive nor negative  ## Algorithm

Step 1. Start

Step 2. Insert the number.

Step 3. If the number is Zero then print “The number is Zero”

Step4: If the number is greater than zero, then print, “The number is Positive”

Step 5. Else print, “The number is Negative”

Step 6. Stop

### C++ Progam:

```#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main()
{
int n;
cout<<"Enter a number: ";   cin>>n;
if(n==0)
cout<<"The number is Zero";   else if(n>0)
cout<<"The number is Positive";
else
cout<<"The number is Negative";
}```

### Output:

`Enter a number: 96The number is Positive`
