# Program to check if all characters have even frequency

• Last Updated : 24 May, 2021

Given a string S consisting only of lowercase letters check if the string has all characters appearing even times.
Examples:

Input : abaccaba
Output : Yes
Explanation: ‘a’ occurs four times, ‘b’ occurs twice, ‘c’ occurs twice and the other letters occur zero times.
Input : hthth
Output : No

Approach:
We will go through the string and count the occurrence of all characters after that we will check if the occurrences are even or not if there is any odd frequency character then we immediately print No.

Output:

`Yes`

### Method #2:Using built in python functions.

Approach:

We will scan the string and count the occurrence of all characters using the built-in Counter() function after that we traverse the counter list and check if the occurrences are even or not if there is any odd frequency character then we immediately print No.

Note: This method is applicable for all type of characters

## Python3

 `# Python implementation for``# the above approach` `# importing Counter function``from` `collections ``import` `Counter` `# Function to check if all``# elements occur even times``def` `checkString(s):``  ` `    ``# Counting the frequency of all``    ``# character using Counter function``    ``frequency ``=` `Counter(s)``    ` `    ``# Traversing frequency``    ``for` `i ``in` `frequency:``      ` `        ``# Checking if any element``        ``# has odd count``        ``if` `(frequency[i] ``%` `2` `=``=` `1``):``            ``return` `False``    ``return` `True`  `# Driver code``s ``=` `"geeksforgeeksfor"``if``(checkString(s)):``    ``print``(``"Yes"``)``else``:``    ``print``(``"No"``)``    ` `# This code is contributed by vikkycirus`

Output:

`Yes`
