novie level . you can say i am "hello world" category programmer.
Recently i ve started learning java in my university.
my teacher gave me a assigment in which he said that programm should
judge wether the given number in variable is Even or ODD .The
program should be coded by 4 methods.i ve coded by 2 methods using %
reminder operator and other method is float integer camparsion

the further 2 methods that my teacher and i want is tat
check integer number without using any % and / operators .with only
bitwise operators allowed.
3rd last is
check the number by using the conditional operators.

Keep in mind that any odd number  can be broken up into an even
number+1. Also remember how numbers are stored in binary (a sum of
different powers of 2). Since an odd  number always has the number 1 in
its sum, you can check the bit for that value by doing a bitwise and.
If the bit is set, then the number's odd.

Do you mean the ternary operator? --> (cond) ? doIfTrue: doIfFalse

The only way I see of using this is (cond)?true:false;, where cond is
any check for an odd number.
