```def even_odd:

if num/2
```

Hi Abe, I broke it down to show how it works

```# Write a function named even_odd
def even_odd(num): # that takes a single argument, a number
if num % 2 == 0: # use % 2 to find out the remainder
# return True if the number is even
return True  # Even numbers won't have a remainder
else:
return False # False if the number is odd
```

:D

john larson Maybe I missed this part with defining functions, but what is the significance of typing "even_odd(num)" instead of "even_odd()"?

For instance, I would've thought my code below would've worked:

```def even_odd():
guess = int(input("Type an number and I'll tell you if it's odd or even: "))
if guess % 2 == 0:
return True
else:
return False
```
