What is Palindrome number?

Palindrome number is such number which when reversed is equal to the original number. For example: 121, 12321, 1001 etc.

Logic to check palindrome number

Step by step descriptive logic to check palindrome number.

  1. Input a number from user. Store it in some variable say num.
  2. Find reverse of the given number. Store it in some variable say reverse.
  3. Compare num with reverse. If both are same then the number is palindrome otherwise not.

Program to check palindrome number

/**
 * C program to check whether a number is palindrome or not
 */

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
    int n, num, rev = 0;

    /* Input a number from user */
    printf("Enter any number to check palindrome: ");
    scanf("%d", &n);

    /* Copy original value to 'num' to 'n'*/
    num = n; 

    /* Find reverse of n and store in rev */
    while(n != 0)
    {
        rev = (rev * 10) + (n % 10);
        n  /= 10;
    }

    /* Check if reverse is equal to 'num' or not */
    if(rev == num)
    {
        printf("%d is palindrome.", num);
    }
    else
    {
        printf("%d is not palindrome.", num);
    }

    return 0;
}
