Check if the number is even or odd whose digits and base (radix) is given
  • Difficulty Level : Hard
  • Last Updated : 12 May, 2021

Given an array arr[] of size N which represents the digits of a number and an integer r which is the base (radix) of the given number i.e. n = arr[n – 1] * r0 + arr[n – 2] * r1 + … + a[0] * rN – 1. The task is to find whether the given number is odd or even.
Examples: 
 

Input: arr[] = {1, 0}, r = 2 
Output: Even 
(10)2 = (2)10
Input: arr[] = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9}, r = 10 
Output: Odd 
 

 

Naive Approach: The simplest approach is to calculate the number n by multiplying the digits with the corresponding power of base. But as the number of digits can be of the order of 105, this approach won’t work for a large n.
Efficient Approach: There are two cases possible. 
 

  1. If r is even then the final answer depends on the last digit i.e. arr[n – 1].
  2. If r is odd then we have to count the number of odd digits. If the number of odd digits is even, then the sum is even. Else the sum is odd.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
 



C++




// C++ implementation of the approach
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
 
// Function that returns true if the number
// represented by arr[] is even in base r
bool isEven(int arr[], int n, int r)
{
 
    // If the base is even, then
    // the last digit is checked
    if (r % 2 == 0) {
        if (arr[n - 1] % 2 == 0)
            return true;
    }
 
    // If base is odd, then the
    // number of odd digits are checked
    else {
 
        // To store the count of odd digits
        int oddCount = 0;
        for (int i = 0; i < n; ++i) {
            if (arr[i] % 2 != 0)
                oddCount++;
        }
        if (oddCount % 2 == 0)
            return true;
    }
 
    // Number is odd
    return false;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int arr[] = { 1, 0 };
    int n = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
    int r = 2;
 
    if (isEven(arr, n, r))
        cout << "Even";
    else
        cout << "Odd";
 
    return 0;
}

// Java implementation of the approach
import java.io.*;
 
class GFG
{
     
// Function that returns true if the number
// represented by arr[] is even in base r

{
 
    // If the base is even, then
    // the last digit is checked
    if (r % 2 == 0)
    {
        if (arr[n - 1] % 2 == 0)
            return true;
    }
 
    // If base is odd, then the
    // number of odd digits are checked
    else {
 
        // To store the count of odd digits
        int oddCount = 0;
        for (int i = 0; i < n; ++i) {
            if (arr[i] % 2 != 0)
                oddCount++;
        }
        if (oddCount % 2 == 0)
            return true;

    // Number is odd
