Write a program in C to check whether a given number is a palindrome or not.

How to find if the number is a palindrome or not in C ?

A palindrome is a number where the reverse of a number is equal to the original number. Here’s a program in C demonstrating how to do it.

#include <stdio.h>
int main()
    int input, reverseNumber = 0, remainder, initialNumber;
    printf("Abundantcode.com coding sample\n");
    printf("Enter a number: ");
    scanf("%d", &input);

    initialNumber = input;
    while( input!=0 )
        remainder = input%10;
        reverseNumber = reverseNumber*10 + remainder;
        input /= 10;

    if (initialNumber == reverseNumber)
        printf("%d is a palindrome.", initialNumber);
        printf("%d is not a palindrome.", initialNumber);
    return 0;


Abundantcode.com coding sample

Enter a number: 121
