### Java example code to check if a number is even, odd or prime

```package com.as400samplecode;

public class CheckMyNumber {

public static void main(String[] args) {

boolean even = false;
boolean prime = true;
int myNumber = Integer.parseInt(args.trim());

if(myNumber % 2 == 0){
even = true;
prime = false;
}
else {
for(int i=3; i*i<=myNumber; i+=2) {
if(myNumber % i == 0) {
prime = false;
}
}
}

if(even){
System.out.println("The given number is Even.");
}
else {
if(prime){
System.out.println("The given number is Prime.");
}
else {
System.out.println("The given number is Odd.");
}
}
}

}
```
• Even number
• An even number is an integer which is a multiple of two. If it is divided by two the result is another integer. Zero is an even number because zero multiplied by two is zero
• Odd number
• An odd number is an integer of the form n=2k+1, where k is an integer. Odd numbers leave a remainder of 1 when divided by two.
• Prime number
• A prime number (or a prime) is a natural number greater than 1 that has no positive divisors other than 1 and itself.
