# Java Program to Check Whether a Number is Even or Odd

## A number is even or odd using java :

Even number is a positive natural number which is completely divisible by two, where as odd number is the reverse of the even number, means odd number is also a positive natural number which is not completely divisible by two.

If N % 2 = 0, then the number is Even, else the number is Odd.

In this article, we will create a java program to check whether the number entered by the user is even or odd. ### Working :

Step 1 : Ask the user to enter a number.

Step 2 : Check the condition for N % 2 = 0 or not. If the condition gets true, then the number is Even number, else the number is Odd number.

Step 3 : Print the result.

### Code in Java :

`//Java Program to check a number is even or oddimport java.util.Scanner;public class even_or_odd{	public static void main(String[] args)	{		//scanner class declaration		Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);		//input from the user				System.out.print("Enter a Number : ");				int numb = sc.nextInt();		//condition for even		if(numb  %  2 == 0)											System.out.println("Even Number");		//condition for odd		else														System.out.println("Odd Number");		//closing scanner class(not compulsory, but good practice)		sc.close();										}}`

### Output :

`Enter a Number : 78Even NumberEnter a Number : 33Odd Number`
