Check in binary array the number represented by a subarray is odd or even

  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 28 Apr, 2021

Given an array such that all its terms is either 0 or 1.You need to tell the number represented by a subarray a[l..r] is odd or even
Examples : 
 

Input : arr = {1, 1, 0, 1}
        l = 1, r = 3
Output : odd
        number represented by arr[l...r] is 
        101 which 5 in decimal form which is 
        odd

Input :  arr = {1, 1, 1, 1}
         l = 0, r = 3
Output : odd

 

The important point to note here is all the odd numbers in binary form have 1 as their rightmost bit and all even numbers have 0 as their rightmost bit. 
The reason is simple all other bits other than the rightmost bit have even values and the sum of even numbers is always even. Now the rightmost bit can have a value of either 1 or 0 as we know even + odd = odd so when the rightmost bit is 1 the number is odd and when it is 0 the number is even. 
So to solve this problem we have to just check if a[r] is 0 or 1 and accordingly print odd or even 
 

C++




// C++ program to find if a subarray
// is even or odd.
#include<bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// prints if subarray is even or odd
void checkEVENodd (int arr[], int n, int l, int r)
{
    // if arr[r] = 1 print odd
    if (arr[r] == 1)
        cout << "odd" << endl;
 
    // if arr[r] = 0 print even
    else
        cout << "even" << endl;
}
 
// driver code
int main()
{
    int arr[] = {1, 1, 0, 1};
    int n = sizeof(arr)/sizeof(arr[0]);
    checkEVENodd (arr, n, 1, 3);
    return 0;
}

Java




// java program to find if a subarray
// is even or odd.
import java.io.*;
 
class GFG
{
    // prints if subarray is even or odd
    static void checkEVENodd (int arr[], int n, int l, int r)
    {
        // if arr[r] = 1 print odd
        if (arr[r] == 1)
            System.out.println( "odd") ;
     
        // if arr[r] = 0 print even
        else
            System.out.println ( "even") ;
    }
 
    // driver code
    public static void main (String[] args)
    {
        int arr[] = {1, 1, 0, 1};
        int n = arr.length;
        checkEVENodd (arr, n, 1, 3);
         
         
    }
}
