    just a question

    I know this is just a simple problem. I am new cprogramming student and I would like to know what and how I can incorporate the "%" function.

    Make a program that finds all the even or odd numbers below a user-inputted number.

    "%" is a so called "modulo" or as in school so called "remainder"....

    i.e.

    5 % 2 = 1...........

    when you modulo (divide) 5 by 2... you see that two 2's fits in it making 4 and the remainder is 1......

    One use is to test for an even number...

    short int number = 5;

    if (!(number % 2))
    {
    cout << "Even number!";
    } else {
    cout << "Odd number!";
    }

    for single line if (and maybe else) statements, you don't need the "{" and "}". Although, I could be wrong.
