In this article, we will see a** python program to check whether a number is odd or even**. As we know, a number is said to be even if it is completely divided by 2. In other words, a number is said to be even if it gives a reminder of zero after dividing by 2.

And if a number is not completely divided by 2 then a number will be considered an odd number.

As we know, a number is said to be even if it’s a reminder is equal to zero after dividing by 2.

In Python, “%” is used as a reminder operator (Gives reminder) and “==” is used to equate the equation. We should have basic knowledge of Operators in Python.

Therefore, the condition for checking an even number is :

`number%2==0`

Hence, if a number is satisfying the above condition, that means the number will be an even number. if a number is not satisfying the above condition, that means the number will be an odd number.

## Python program to check if a number is odd or even :

```
print("Enter a number")
n=int(input())
if(n%2==0):
print("Entered number is an even number")
else:
print("Entered number is an odd number")
```

### Output (First run) :

```
Enter a number
3
Entered number is an odd number
```

### Output (Second Run) :

```
Enter a number
16
Entered number is an even number
```
