Find sum of even and odd nodes in a linked list

  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 07 Jun, 2021

Given a linked list, the task is to find the sum of even and odd nodes in it separately.
Examples: 
 

Input: 1 -> 2 -> 3 -> 4 -> 5 -> 6 -> 7 
Output: 
Even Sum = 12 
Odd Sum = 16
Input: 5 -> 7 -> 8 -> 10 -> 15 
Output: 
Even Sum = 18 
Odd Sum = 27

Approach: Traverse the whole linked list and for each node:- 
 

  1. If the element is even then we add that element to the variable which is holding the sum of even elements.
  2. If the element is odd then we add that element to the variable which is holding the sum of odd elements.

Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 

C++




// C++ implementation of the approach
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
 
// Represents node of the linked list
struct Node {
    int data;
    Node* next;
};
 
// Function to insert a node at the
// end of the linked list
void insert(Node** root, int item)
{
    Node *ptr = *root, *temp = new Node;
    temp->data = item;
    temp->next = NULL;
 
    if (*root == NULL)
        *root = temp;
    else {
        while (ptr->next != NULL)
            ptr = ptr->next;
        ptr->next = temp;
    }
}
 
// Function to print the sum of even
// and odd nodes of the linked lists
void evenOdd(Node* root)
{
    int odd = 0, even = 0;
    Node* ptr = root;
    while (ptr != NULL) {
 
        // If current node's data is even
        if (ptr->data % 2 == 0)
            even += ptr->data;
 
        // If current node's data is odd
        else
            odd += ptr->data;
 
        // ptr now points to the next node
        ptr = ptr->next;
    }
 
    cout << "Even Sum = " << even << endl;
    cout << "Odd Sum = " << odd << endl;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    Node* root = NULL;
    insert(&root, 1);
    insert(&root, 2);
    insert(&root, 3);
    insert(&root, 4);
    insert(&root, 5);
    insert(&root, 6);
    insert(&root, 7);
 
    evenOdd(root);
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java implementation of the approach
class GfG
{
 
// Represents node of the linked list

{
    int data;
    Node next;
}

        root = temp;
    else
    {
        while (ptr.next != null)
            ptr = ptr.next;
        ptr.next = temp;
    }
}
 
// Function to print the sum of even
// and odd nodes of the linked lists
static void evenOdd(Node root)
{
    int odd = 0, even = 0;
    Node ptr = root;
    while (ptr != null)
    {
 
        // If current node's data is even
        if (ptr.data % 2 == 0)
            even += ptr.data;
 
        // If current node's data is odd
        else
            odd += ptr.data;
 
        // ptr now points to the next node
        ptr = ptr.next;
    }
 
    System.out.println("Even Sum = " + even);
    System.out.println("Odd Sum = " + odd);
}
 
// Driver code
public static void main(String[] args)
{
    // Node* root = NULL;
    insert( 1);
    insert( 2);
    insert( 3);
    insert( 4);
    insert(5);
