Another way to compare two values is with the equality operators.

We can use the equality operator (`==`) to check if the value on the right side of the operator is equal to the value on the left. If the values are equivalent the expression will return `true`; otherwise, it will return `false`:

``````var userPassword = "secret884"

println("The password you entered is correct.")
}``````

This code snippet will output `"The password you entered is correct."` because `userPassword` and `attemptedPassword` have the same value.

On the other hand, the inequality operator (`!=`) is used to determine if the values on each side of the `!=` operator are different. This expression returns `true` when the two values being compared are not equal to each other.

We can use `!=` to check if a gathering of `9` people can evenly split `16` slices of pizza amongst themselves:

``````var slicesOfPizza = 16
var numPeople = 9

if (slicesOfPizza % numPeople != 0) {
println("The pizza cannot be split evenly.")
}
// Prints: The pizza cannot be split evenly.``````

Using modulo `%`, we can find if dividing `16` by `9` has a remainder of `0`. Since the remainder value does not equal `0`, `"The pizza cannot be split evenly."` is outputted to the terminal.

### Instructions

1.

Create an `if` expression that checks if the value of `num1` is even.

In the body of the `if` expression, use `println()` and a String template to output the following:

``[num1] is even.``
2.

Create a second `if` expression that checks if the value of `num2` is odd using `!=`.

In the body of the `if` expression, use `println()` and a String template to output the following:

``[num2] is odd.``
