    Exclamation Separates digits

    Hi all

    anyone can give me any idea that how to do this using on single selection of if statment
    "Write a program that inputs one five-digit number,separates the number into its individual digits and prints the digit seperately from one another.
    like if input is 42139
    the output

    4 2 1 3 9"

    any idea??

    Best Regards
    Asad

    here is a "hint"
    Use the "%" operator.
    for example 98 % 10 gives u 8

    that will help u separate the digits. put the whole thing in a loop, let the loop run as many times as the number of digits in ur original number.
    at the end of the loop, U have all the digits.
    In the middle of difficulty, lies opportunity

    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    #include<conio.h>
    int main()
    {
    int a = 98;
    int b = 10;
    int rem;
    int c;
    clrscr();
    rem = a % b;
    c = rem + b;
    printf(" : %d %d", c, rem);
    
    
    
    return 0;
    
    }
    it prints only for 9 n 8

    Division is the other part of remainder after division. It is done with the / operator.

    Here's an example with 2 numbers :

    19 = 1*10^1 + 9*10^0

    19 % 10 = 9 --> Store this as the first digit (or last to print out)

    floor(19/10) = 1 --> This is the result you'll now have to compare for your next digit

    1 % 10 = 1 --> Store this as the second digit (or first to print out)

    print out 1
    print out 9.

    There you go. Now do it for five numbers.

    Extra large hint (I'm off to bed):
    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    
    int main()
    {
       int a = 123;
       int div = a / 10;
       int rem = a % 10;
       printf("div = %d, rem = %d\n", div, rem);
    
       a = div;
       div = a / 10;
       rem = a % 10;
       printf("div = %d, rem = %d\n", div, rem);
       return 0;
    }
    
    /* my output
    div = 12, rem = 3
    div = 1, rem = 2
    */

    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    #include<conio.h>
    int main()
    {
    int a;
    int b = 10;
    int rem,c;
    clrscr();
    
    printf("\n Enter a five digit number: ");
    scanf("%d", &a);
    
    rem = a / b;
    c = a % b ;
    printf("\n : %d", c);
    a = rem;
    rem = a / b;
    c = a % b ;
    printf(" %d", c);
    a = rem;
    rem = a / b;
    c = a % b ;
    printf(" %d", c);
    a = rem;
    rem = a / b;
    c = a % b ;
    printf(" %d", c);
    a = rem;
    rem = a / b;
    c = a % b ;
    printf(" %d", c);
    
    return 0;
    
    }

    for 42139 it gives a negative value and for 11111 it prints 1 1 1 1 1
    edit: Sorry mates just read the integer types was just confused fully sorrryy once again
