Challenge Task 1 of 1: Even or Odd

"This one should be short and sweet. Write a function named even_odd that takes a single argument, a number. return True if the number is even, or False if the number is odd. You can use % 2 to find out the remainder when dividing a number by 2. Even numbers won't have a remainder...."

MOD

Step 1: Write a function named even_odd that takes a single argument, a number.

```def even_odd(num):
```

Step 2: return `True` if the number is even, or `False` if the number is odd.

This needs an `if` statement

```    if <some condition>:
return True
else:
return False
```

What condition can you add to the if statement to test if number is even?

The challenge gave a hint:

`You can use % 2 to find out the remainder when dividing a number by 2. Even numbers won't have a remainder....`
