Learning goals:

  • Learn how to use the `if` and `else` statement.


Up until now, all the programs you created were static: they always execute all your lines of code. But what if you want to run one line if a number is even, and the other line if a number is odd? Python can also do that for you, if you use the `if` and `else` statement (also known as a conditional statement).

You will use `if` and `else` in a program called ``. In this program, you will ask the user for an integer and output whether that integer is even or odd!
