On this tutorial you’re going to learn how to build a simple Python Program to determine whether a given number is odd or even.

Program overview

We will use a modulus operator to check whether a given number is divisible by two without remainder or not If yes the number is even else the number is odd .

Program Instructions summary

- Getting a number from the user
- Checking
** if **number is divisible by 2 without remainder **If** true the number is even **else** the number is odd

**odd_even.py**

#Getting number from user
number = int(input('Enter any number: '))
#Check if number is divisible by 2 without remainder
if (number % 2 == 0):
print('The number is even')
else:
print('The number is odd')

**Running our Program**

kalebu@kalebu-PC:~$ python odd_even.py
Enter any number: 33
The number is odd
--------------------------------
kalebu@kalebu-PC:~$ python odd_even.py
Enter any number: 46
The number is even
