To check if a number is even in Java, do this:

`number % 2 === 0`

.`number % 2`

returns the remainder of division by `2`

. Thus if the remainder is `0`

, then the `number`

is even.

```
int evenNumber = 4;
int oddNumber = 3;
if (evenNumber % 2 === 0) {
System.out.println("This will be printed!");
}
if (oddNumber % 2 === 0) {
System.out.println("This will NOT be printed!");
}
if (8 % 2 === 0) {
System.out.println("This will also be printed!");
}
```
