# Count Odd and Even numbers in a range from L to R

Given two numbers L and R, the task is to count the number of odd numbers in the range L to R.

**Examples:**

Input:l = 3, r = 7

Output:3 2

Count of odd numbers is 3 i.e. 3, 5, 7

Count of even numbers is 2 i.e. 4, 6

Input:l = 4, r = 8

Output:2

**Approach:** Total numbers in the range will be **(R – L + 1)** i.e. N.

- If N is even then the count of both odd and even numbers will be
**N/2**. - If N is odd,
- If L or R is odd, then the count of odd number will be
**N/2 + 1**and even numbers =**N – countofOdd**. - Else, count of odd numbers will be
**N/2**and even numbers =**N – countofOdd**.

- If L or R is odd, then the count of odd number will be

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
