The code starts by asking the user to input a value,
x, and converting it to an integer using the
int function. The value is then stored in the variable
Next, the code checks if the value of
x is even or odd using the modulo operator
%. The modulo operator returns the remainder of a division operation, so if
x % 2 is equal to 0, it means that
x is divisible by 2 and therefore even. On the other hand, if
x % 2 is not equal to 0, it means that
x is not divisible by 2 and therefore odd.
The code uses an
if statement to perform this check. If the condition
x % 2 == 0 is true, the code inside the first block of the
if statement is executed, and the message “Number X is even” is printed, where X is the value of
x. If the condition is false, the code inside the
else block is executed, and the message “Number X is odd” is printed.
str function is used to convert the value of
x to a string representation, so that it can be concatenated with the string literals in the
This code demonstrates how to use the modulo operator and an
if statement to determine if a number is even or odd.
x = int(input("Enter a value for x: ")) if x % 2 == 0: print("Number " + str(x) + " is even") else: print("Number " + str(x) + " is odd")
Enter a value for x: 7 Number 7 is odd
