Java program to find odd or even

This java program finds if a number is odd or even. If the number is divisible by 2 then it will be even, otherwise it is odd. We use modulus operator to find remainder in our program.

Java programming source code

import java.util.Scanner;
 
class OddOrEven
{
   public static void main(String args[])
   {
      int x;
      System.out.println("Enter an integer to check if it is odd or even ");
      Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in);
      x = in.nextInt();
 
      if ( x % 2 == 0 )
         System.out.println("You entered an even number.");
      else
         System.out.println("You entered an odd number.");
   }
}

Output of program:
odd even

Another method to check odd or even, for explanation see: c program to check odd or even. Code:

import java.util.Scanner;
 
class EvenOdd
{
  public static void main(String args[])
  {
    int c;
    System.out.println("Input an integer");
    Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in);
    c = in.nextInt();
 
    if ( (c/2)*2 == c )
      System.out.println("Even");
    else
      System.out.println("Odd");
  }
}

There are other methods for checking odd/even one such method is using bitwise operator.
