count_if() in C++ STL
  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 14 Jun, 2018

count_if() function returns the number of elements in a range that satisfy the condition.


Input: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Output: Total no of even numbers is: 5

Input: 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13
Output: Total no of even numbers is: 6


count_if(lower_bound, upper_bound, function)

The count_if function takes three parameters, the first two of which are the first and the last position of the sequence of the elements (where the last position is not included in the range) while the third parameter is the function that takes the element of given sequence one by one as a parameter and returns a boolean value on the basis of condition
specified in that function.
Then, count_if() returns the number of elements in the given sequence for which the comparator function
(third parameter) returns true.

// C++ program to show the working
// of count_if()
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
// Function to check the 
// number is even or odd
bool isEven(int i)
    if (i % 2 == 0)
        return true;
        return false;
// Drivers code
int main()
    vector<int> v;
    for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++) {
    int noEven = count_if(v.begin(), v.end(),
    cout << "Total no of even numbers is: " 
         << noEven;
    return 0;
Total no of even numbers is: 5
