# Python: Find four positive even integers whose sum is n

## Python Programming Puzzles: Exercise-100 with Solution

Write a Python program to find four positive even integers whose sum is a given integer.

Input: n = 100 Output: [94, 2, 2, 2] Input: n = 1000 Output: [994, 2, 2, 2] Input: n = 10000 Output: [9994, 2, 2, 2] Input: n = 1234567890 Output: [1234567884, 2, 2, 2]

**Sample Solution:**

**Python Code:**

```

def test(n):
for a in range(n, 0, -1):
if not a % 2 == 0:
continue
for b in range(n - a, 0, -1):
if not b % 2 == 0:
continue
for c in range(n - b - a, 0, -1):
if not c % 2 == 0:
continue
for d in range(n - b - c - a, 0, -1):
if not d % 2 == 0:
continue
if a + b + c + d == n:
return [a, b, c, d]
n = 100
print("Four positive even integers whose sum is",n)
print(test(n))
n = 1000
print("\nFour positive even integers whose sum is",n)
print(test(n))
n = 10000
print("\nFour positive even integers whose sum is",n)
print(test(n))
n = 1234567890
print("\nFour positive even integers whose sum is",n)
print(test(n))
```

Sample Output:

Four positive even integers whose sum is 100 [94, 2, 2, 2] Four positive even integers whose sum is 1000 [994, 2, 2, 2] Four positive even integers whose sum is 10000 [9994, 2, 2, 2] Four positive even integers whose sum is 1234567890 [1234567884, 2, 2, 2]
