JavaScript - Odd or even number using bit manipulation

JavaScript Bit Manipulation: Exercise-5 with Solution

Write a JavaScript program to check a given number is odd or even using bit manipulation.

A number (i.e., integer) expressed in the decimal numeral system is even or odd according to whether its last digit is even or odd. That is, if the last digit is 1, 3, 5, 7, or 9, then it is odd; otherwise it is even-as the last digit of any even number is 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8.

Test Data:
(1) -> 1 is an odd number.
(4) -> 4 is an even number.
(9) -> 9 is an odd number.
("15") -> Parameter value must be number!

Sample Solution:

JavaScript Code:

const check_even_odd = (n) => {
        if (typeof n != "number") 
        {
          return 'Parameter value must be number!'
        }  
        if ((n ^ 1) == (n + 1))//even
           return n +' is an even number.'
        else //odd
           return n +' is an odd number.'
      }
console.log(check_even_odd(1))
console.log(check_even_odd(4))
console.log(check_even_odd(9))
console.log(check_even_odd("15"))

Sample Output:

1 is an odd number.
4 is an even number.
9 is an odd number.
Parameter value must be number!

JavaScript: Tips of the Day

function and arguments

const person = {
  name: 'Lydia Hallie',
  hobbies: ['coding'],
};

function addHobby(hobby, hobbies = person.hobbies) {
  hobbies.push(hobby);
  return hobbies;
}

addHobby('running', []);
addHobby('dancing');
addHobby('baking', person.hobbies);

console.log(person.hobbies);

The addHobby function receives two arguments, hobby and hobbies with the default value of the hobbies array on the person object.
First, we invoke the addHobby function, and pass "running" as the value for hobby and an empty array as the value for hobbies. Since we pass an empty array as the value for y, "running" gets added to this empty array.
Then, we invoke the addHobby function, and pass "dancing" as the value for hobby. We didn't pass a value for hobbies, so it gets the default value, the hobbies property on the person object. We push the hobby dancing to the person.hobbies array.
Last, we invoke the addHobby function, and pass "bdaking" as the value for hobby, and the person.hobbies array as the value for hobbies. We push the hobby baking to the person.hobbies array.
After pushing dancing and baking, the value of person.hobbies is ["coding", "dancing", "baking"]
