Last Updated : 13 Dec, 2023

Given a number A. The task is to check whether A is positive, negative or zero. Examples:

```Input: A = 2
Output: 2 is positive

Input: A = -554
Output: -554 is negative```

In the below program, to find whether A is positive, negative or zero; first the number is taken as input from the user using scanf in , and then A is checked for positive using statement and and operators. Below is the C program to find whether a number is positive, negative or zero.

## C

 `#include   `` ` `int` `main()  ``{  ``    ``int` `A;  `` ` `    ``printf``(``"Enter the number A: "``);  ``    ``scanf``(``"%d"``, &A);  `` ` `    ``if` `(A > 0)  ``        ``printf``(``"%d is positive."``, A);  ``    ``else` `if` `(A < 0)  ``        ``printf``(``"%d is negative."``, A);  ``    ``else` `if` `(A == 0)  ``        ``printf``(``"%d is zero."``, A);  `` ` `    ``return` `0;  ``}  `

Output:

```Enter the number A =: -54
-54 is negative.```

Time Complexity: O(1)

Auxiliary Space: O(1)
