Python Multi-threading and Concurrency: Concurrent even and odd number printing

Python Multi-threading: Exercise-3 with Solution

Write a Python program that creates two threads to find and print even and odd numbers from 30 to 50.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

import threading
def print_even_numbers():
    print("List of even numbers:")
    for i in range(30, 51, 2):
        print(i, end = " ")

def print_odd_numbers():
    print("\nList of odd numbers:")
    for i in range(31, 51, 2):
        print(i, end = " ")
# Create threads for printing even and odd numbers
even_thread = threading.Thread(target=print_even_numbers)
odd_thread = threading.Thread(target=print_odd_numbers)
# Start the threads
# Wait for the threads to complete

Sample Output:

List of even numbers:
30 32 34 36 38 40 42 44 46 48 50 
List of odd numbers:
31 33 35 37 39 41 43 45 47 49


In the above exercise,

  • We define two functions: "print_even_numbers()" and "print_odd_numbers()".
  • The "print_even_numbers()" function uses a loop to print even numbers from 30 to 50, incrementing by 2.
  • The "print_odd_numbers()" function does the same for odd numbers, starting at 31 and incrementing by 2.
  • Create two threads, "even_thread" and "odd_thread", targeting their respective functions.
  • Start the threads using the start() method, which initiates their parallel execution.
  • Finally, we use the join() method to wait for threads to complete.
