## Purpose

## Return value

## Syntax

`=ISODD(value)`

*value*- The numeric value to check.

## How to use

The ISODD function tests for odd numbers. ISODD takes one argument, *value*, which should be a numeric value or a cell reference. When *value* is an odd number, ISODD returns TRUE. When *value* is an even number, ISODD returns FALSE. If *value* is not numeric, ISODD will return the #VALUE error. Only the integer portion of *value* is evaluated, decimal values are truncated.

### Examples

The ISODD function returns TRUE or FALSE:

```
=ISODD(4) // returns FALSE
=ISODD(3) // returns TRUE
=ISODD(0) // returns FALSE
```

If cell A1 contains 11, the formula below returns TRUE:

```
=ISODD(A1) //returns TRUE
```

Only the integer portion of *value* is tested. If *value* is a decimal number, the decimal portion is truncated:

```
=ISODD(4.1) // returns FALSE
=ISODD(0.33) // returns FALSE
=ISODD(7.4) // returns TRUE
```

### Notes

- If
*value*is not numeric, ISODD will return the #VALUE error. - Only the integer portion of
*value*is tested; decimal values are truncated. - Use the ISEVEN function to test for even numbers.
