# Check Even and ODD in PHP

In this PHP program, we are going to **check whether a given number is an EVEN number of an ODD number**.

Submitted by **IncludeHelp**, on January 05, 2018

**Given a number and we have to check whether it is an EVEN number of an ODD number using PHP Code.**

**EVEN numbers** are the numbers which are divisible by 2, like: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, etc, and the **ODD numbers** are not divisible by 2, like: 3, 5,7, 9, 1 etc

**Example:**

Input: 12
Output: 12 is an EVEN number
12 is divisible by 2, it returns remainder 0
Input: 13
Output: 13 is an ODD number
13 is not divisible by 2, because it returns remainder 1

## Program to check EVEN and ODD in PHP

<?php
//program to check EVEN or ODD
//function: isEvenOrOdd
//description: This function will check
//whether a given number is EVEN or ODD
function isEvenOrOdd($num){
//if num is divisible by 2 than
//it will be an EVEN number or it
//will be an ODD number
if( $num % 2 == 0)
return 1; //will check as EVEN number
else
return 0; //will check as ODD number
}
//main code to test the function
$number = 12;
if(isEvenOrODD($number))
print_r($number." is EVEN number");
else
print_r($number." is ODD number");
print_r("\n");
//again check with an ODD number
$number = 13;
if(isEvenOrODD($number))
print_r($number." is EVEN number");
else
print_r($number." is ODD number");
?>

**Output**

12 is EVEN number
13 is ODD number
