# Java Program to Check Given Number is Even or Odd

In this tutorial, we will learn how to check whether a number is even or odd.

# What is Even Number ?

A number that is divisible by 2 and results a remainder of 0 is called an Even Number. Examples : 2, 4, 6, 8, ..., 98, 100 etc.

# What is Odd Number ?

A number that is divisible by 2 and results a remainder of 1 is called Odd Number Examples : 1, 3, 5, 7, ..., 97, 99 etc.

In java we use modulo operator (represented using % symbol) to determine the remainder.

# Algorithm

`1Step 1 : Start 2Step 2 : Read number "n"3Step 3 : rem =  n % 2 (Initialize remainder as rem) 4Step 4 : If rem = 0, print Even 5Step 5 : Else print Odd. 6Step 6 : End `

# Code Implementation

```1import java.util.Scanner;2
3public class EvenOdd {4
5  public static void main(String[] args) {6    Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);7    System.out.println("Enter Number :");8    int number = sc.nextInt();9    10    int rem = number % 2 ;11    if (rem == 0) {12      System.out.printf("%d is Even\n", number);13    }else {14      System.out.printf("%d is Odd\n", number);15    }16  }17}```

Output :

`1Enter Number : 21221 is Odd`

Output :

`1Enter Number : 18218 is Even`
