Check if a HexaDecimal number is Even or Odd
  • Last Updated : 28 Apr, 2021

Given a HexaDecimal number, check whether it is even or odd.
Examples: 
 

Input: N = ABC7787CC87AA
Output: Even

Input: N = 9322DEFCD
Output: Odd

 

Naive Approach: 
 

Time Complexity: O(N)
Efficient approach: Since Hexadecimal numbers contain digits from 0 to 15, therefore we can simply check if the last digit is either ‘0’, ‘2’, ‘4’, ‘6’, ‘8’, ‘A'(=10), ‘C'(=12) or ‘E'(=14). If it is, then the given HexaDecimal number will be Even, else Odd.
Below is the implementation of the above approach. 
 

C++




// C++ code to check if a HexaDecimal
// number is Even or Odd
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Check if the number is odd or even
string even_or_odd(string N)
{
    int len = N.size();
 
    // check if the last digit
    // is either '0', '2', '4',
    // '6', '8', 'A'(=10),
    // 'C'(=12) or 'E'(=14)
    if (N[len - 1] == '0'
        || N[len - 1] == '2'
        || N[len - 1] == '4'
        || N[len - 1] == '6'
        || N[len - 1] == '8'
        || N[len - 1] == 'A'
        || N[len - 1] == 'C'
        || N[len - 1] == 'E')
        return ("Even");
    else
        return ("Odd");
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    string N = "AB3454D";
 
    cout << even_or_odd(N);
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java code to check if a HexaDecimal
// number is Even or Odd
class GFG{
  
// Check if the number is odd or even
static String even_or_odd(String N)
{
    int len = N.length();
  
    // check if the last digit
    // is either '0', '2', '4',
    // '6', '8', 'A'(=10),
    // 'C'(=12) or 'E'(=14)
    if (N.charAt(len - 1) == '0'
        || N.charAt(len - 1) == '2'
        || N.charAt(len - 1) == '4'
        || N.charAt(len - 1) == '6'
        || N.charAt(len - 1) == '8'
        || N.charAt(len - 1) == 'A'
        || N.charAt(len - 1) == 'C'
        || N.charAt(len - 1) == 'E')
        return ("Even");
    else
        return ("Odd");
}
  
// Driver code
public static void main(String[] args)
{
    String N = "AB3454D";
    System.out.print(even_or_odd(N));
}
}

        N[l - 1] == '4'or N[l - 1] == '6'or
        N[l - 1] == '8'or N[l - 1] == 'A'or
