Here I’ll show you how to check **whether a number is odd or even** using **PHP**, **Python**, and **JavaScript**.

## Programming logic to check whether a number is odd or even

`theNumber % 2 == 0`

If a **number is divided by 2 and the remainder is 0**, then the **number is an even** number **otherwise the number is an odd** number.

### Modulo operator (%)

In most of the programming language the **modulo operator** (`%`

) is **used to compute the remainder**.

After getting the remainder, we will check whether the remainder is equal to 0 or not, If yes, then it is an even number, otherwise it is an odd number.

- PHP
- JavaScript
- Python

```
<?php
$num = 6;
if ($num % 2 === 0) {
echo "$num is Even";
} else {
echo "$num is Odd";
}
```

```
const num = 6;
if (num % 2 === 0) {
console.log(num + " is Even");
} else {
console.log(num + " is Odd");
```

```
num = 6
if(num % 2 == 0):
print("{0} is Even".format(num))
else:
print("{0} is Odd".format(num))
```
