# Count odd and even digits in a number in PL/SQL

Prerequisite PL/SQL introduction
In PL/SQL code groups of commands are arranged within a block. A block group related declarations or statements. In declare part, we declare variables and between begin and end part, we perform the operations.

Given a number and task is to find the number of odd and even digits present in the number.
Examples:

```Input: 123456
Output: Odd digits = 3
Even digits = 3

Input: 246
Output: Odd digits = 0
Even digits = 3
```

Approach is to take a number and one by one check its digts, if it is odd or even.

Below is the required implementation:

 `--Odd and Even digits in a number  ` `--in PL/SQL  ` `DECLARE`  `  ``--num variable declared  ` `  ``--num assign with a number  ` `  ``num NUMBER := 123456;  ` ` `  `  ``--len variable char declared  ` `  ``len VARCHAR2(20);  ` ` `  `  ``--cntvariable declared  ` `  ``cnt1 NUMBER(5) := 0;  ` `  ``cnt2 NUMBER(5) := 0;  ` `BEGIN`  ` `  `  ``--for loop go from 1 to length of the number  ` `  ``FOR` `i ``IN` `1..Length(num)  ` `  ``LOOP  ` `    ``len := Substr(num, i, 1);  ` `    ``IF mod(len, 2) != 0 ``THEN`  `      ``cnt1 := cnt1 + 1;  ` `    ``ELSE`  `      ``cnt2:=cnt2+1;  ` `    ``END` `IF;  ` `  ``END` `LOOP; ` `  ``--end loop  ` ` `  `  ``dbms_output.Put_line(``'Odd Digits: '`  `  ``|| cnt1);  ` `  ``dbms_output.Put_line(``'Even Digits: '`  `  ``|| cnt2);  ` `  ``--display result  ` `END``;  ` `--end program `

Output:

```Odd Digits: 3
Even Digits: 3
```
