howdee there, i'm a rookie and stuck on a problem. I need to write a program without the use of strings or arrays that works out if a number is a palindrome or not. I've got the number to reverse by % and / but need to reconstruct it so I can compare the two numbers, what i've been trying to do is to find the number of digits in the number and using a loop multiply the corresponding digits by the appropriate number, ie 10,100,1000 etc. Any help would be great. billo 'darn tootin' bailey
Welcome to JavaRanch, billo! What part of this problem are you stuck on? Feel free to post relevant example code - just be sure to surround it with the [code] and [/code] UBB Tags.
Billo, not sure if I have this straight, you have the two ints but you want to convert the new value back to the original to compare them ?? Why not just create 2 new Integer objects and use the int compareTo(Integer anotherInteger) method to do the compare for you?
