## Java program to reverse a number

### How to reverse a number?

Take a number “num”.

1. Initialize rev_num = 0.
2. Loop while num > 0
(a) Multiply rev_num by 10 and add remainder of num
divide by 10 to rev_num
rev_num = rev_num*10 + num%10;
(b) Divide num by 10.
3.  Return rev_num

### Java Program to reverse a number:

```import java.util.Scanner;
class ReverseNumber
{
public static void main(String args[])
{
int num=0;
int reversenum =0;
System.out.println("Input your number and press enter: ");
//This statement will capture the user input
Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in);
//Captured input would be stored in number num
num = in.nextInt();
//While Loop: Logic to find out the reverse number
while( num != 0 )
{
reversenum = reversenum * 10;
reversenum = reversenum + num%10;
num = num/10;
}

System.out.println("Reverse of input number is: "+reversenum);
}
}```

### OUTPUT:

```Input your number and press enter:
4562
Reverse of input number is: 2654```

#### Let’s dry run an example:

```num = 4562
rev_num = 0

rev_num = rev_num *10 + num%10 = 2
num = num/10 = 456

rev_num = rev_num *10 + num%10 = 20 + 6 = 26
num = num/10 = 45

rev_num = rev_num *10 + num%10 = 260 + 5 = 265
num = num/10 = 4

rev_num = rev_num *10 + num%10 = 265 + 4 = 2654
num = num/10 = 0```

### There is another way of reversing a number using Recursion.

Lets see how to implement a java program to reverse a number using recursion.

#### PROGRAM:

```import java.util.Scanner;
class RecursionReverseDemo
{
//A method for reverse
public static void reverseMethod(int number) {
if (number < 10) {
System.out.println(number);
return;
}
else {
System.out.print(number % 10);
//Method is calling itself: recursion
reverseMethod(number/10);
}
}
public static void main(String args[])
{
int num=0;
System.out.println("Input your number and press enter: ");
Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in);
num = in.nextInt();
System.out.print("Reverse of the input number is:");
reverseMethod(num);
System.out.println();
}
}```

#### OUTPUT:

```Input your number and press enter:
8901
Reverse of the input number is:1098```
