__How to find if a number is a palindrome in Java__
Checking whether a number is palindrome or not is a classical Java
homework exercise. When you start learning Java programming most institute
which teaches Java programming provides
these classical Java programs like How
to find Armstrong number in Java or how
to find the Fibonacci number in Java using recursion etc. Write a Java program to check if the number is palindrome comes from the same category. For those who are not familiar with
palindrome numbers, a palindrome number is a number that is equal to the reverse of
itself.

For example, 121 is a palindrome because the reverse of 121 is 121, while
123 is not a palindrome in Java because the reverse of 123 is 321 and 121!=321. Finding a palindrome number is easy in Java, you just need to develop logic
to reverse a number in Java.

Thankfully Java provides a couple of arithmetic operators like remainder(%) operator also known as modules operator, which returns remainder in division operator and division operator(/) which returns quotient. By using remainder and division operator in Java we can create program to check if the number is palindrome or not.

__Java program – palindrome numbers in Java__

Here is a complete Java program to check if a given number is palindrome
or not, This program works for both positive and negative numbers and displays
if it's palindrome irrespective of their sign. Any one-digit number including
zero is always palindrome.

This program is able to check two-digit, three-digit numbers for a palindrome and effectively go to any number in Java.

Let’s see
how to write a Java program to find palindrome numbers :

**package**testing;

**import**java.util.Scanner;

/**

*

* A number is called palindrome if the number

* and its reverse is equal

* This Java program can also be used to reverse a number in Java

*/

if(isPalindrome(palindrome)){

+ " is a palindrome");

}else{

+ " is not a palindrome");

}

}

while (palindrome != 0) {

reverse = reverse * 10 + remainder;

palindrome = palindrome / 10;

}

if (number == reverse) {

}

}

}

Output:

Please Enter a number :

123

Please Enter a number :

121

*

**Java program to check if the number is palindrome or not**.* A number is called palindrome if the number

* and its reverse is equal

* This Java program can also be used to reverse a number in Java

*/

**public****class**NoClassDefFoundErrorDueToStaticInitFailure {**public****static****void**main(**String**args[]){**System**.out.println("Please Enter a number : ");**int**palindrome =**new****Scanner**(**System**.in).nextInt();if(isPalindrome(palindrome)){

**System**.out.println("Number : " + palindrome+ " is a palindrome");

}else{

**System**.out.println("Number : " + palindrome+ " is not a palindrome");

}

}

*/**

* Java method to check if a number is palindrome or not

*/* Java method to check if a number is palindrome or not

*/

**public****static****boolean**isPalindrome(**int**number) {**int**palindrome = number;*// copied number into variable***int**reverse = 0;while (palindrome != 0) {

**int**remainder = palindrome % 10;reverse = reverse * 10 + remainder;

palindrome = palindrome / 10;

}

*// if original and the reverse of number is equal means**// number is palindrome in Java*if (number == reverse) {

**return****true**;}

**return****false**;}

}

Output:

Please Enter a number :

123

**Number**: 123 is not a palindromePlease Enter a number :

121

**Number**: 123 is a palindrome
That’s all on

**how to check if a number is a palindrome or not in Java**. If you are looking for the answer to this question for interview purposes then better prepare a recursive version of the palindrome program in Java as well because of its common practice that programmer is expected to write java programs using both recursion and iteration in Java. Let me know if you find any other way of checking palindrome in Java.

Very good Program!

ReplyDeletePlease correct the out put when it asks 121 is a palindrome....the result says

123" is a palindrome... it should be 121 :)

Cheers!

Hi, Thanks for this. The program is working well but I am trying to understand how the reverse(sort of where it came from) fits the program.

ReplyDelete// Variations, using charAt

ReplyDeletepublic static boolean isPolindrome(int n) {

String s = String.valueOf(n).toString();

String rs = new StringBuffer(s).reverse().toString();

for (int i=0; i<s.length(); i++) {

if (s.charAt(i) != rs.charAt(i)) return false;

}

return true;

}

Hi you dont even need to reverse the string .

ReplyDeletestatic boolean checkAlgoOne(int num) {

boolean check = false;

String number = Integer.toString(num);

char[] chars = number.toCharArray();

int len = chars.length;

if (num < 0)

check = false;

if (num == 0 || num == 1)

check = true;

if (len % 2 != 1) {

check = false;

} else {

for (int i = 0; i <= len / 2; i++) {

if (chars[i] == chars[len - 1])

check = true;

}

}

return check;

}

cheers!

1221 is palindrome, but your program will say it's not

hi,

Deletecan u explain why you have divided input by 10 and and %10 for reversing a number series...please explain that part.

Hello @Anonymous, when you divide the number you drop last digit from number and when you to module 10 i.. % 10 you get the last digit of the number.

DeleteFor example, 123/10 = 12, last digit 3 is gone so number reduced from 3 to 2

123%10 = 3 means last digit.

This is the trick you need to reverse the number.

why do we have 121/10=12 instead of 12.1

Deletewhy do we have 121/10 as 12 instead of 12.1

DeleteYou've probably figured this out by now but I will write the answer anyway in case someone else stumbles upon this thread.

DeleteThe answer is simple - because it's an integer, and integers are whole numbers. For the number to store 12.1 it would have to be a double or a float, both of which allow fractions.

private static boolean isPalindrome(int n) {

ReplyDeletereturn n == Integer.valueOf(new StringBuilder(String.valueOf(n)).reverse().toString());

}

private void checkPolyndrom(String st) {

ReplyDeleteboolean polyn=true;

for(int i =0; i<st.length()-1/2; i++){

if(st.charAt(i)==st.charAt(st.length()-1-i) && polyn){

polyn=true;

}else{

polyn=false;

}

}

if(polyn){

System.out.println("Polyndrom");

}else{

System.out.println("Not Polyndrom");

}

}

Why do we multiply rev*10+ remainder

ReplyDeleteto reverse

Deleteall are from which standards

ReplyDeleteIs 1221 a palindrome number. ????

ReplyDeleteyes

Deletepublic static boolean isPalindrome(int n) {

ReplyDeleteString i = Integer.toString(n);

int first = 0;

int last = i.length() - 1;

while (first < last) {

if (i.charAt(first) == i.charAt(last)) {

first++;

last--;

} else {

return false;

}

}

return true;

}

good examples and thanks to all..

ReplyDeletehow to close the scanner int function?? for resolving warning.

ReplyDelete(Scanner name).close();

DeletemyScanner.close();

Deletetry this simple way

ReplyDeleteimport java.util.*;

class StringPalindrome

{

public static void main (String ar[])

{

String a, b;

StringBuffer sb;

Scanner sc=new Scanner (System.in);

System.out.println("Ente rhe string");

a=sc.nextLine();

sb=new StringBuffer(a);

b=sb.reverse().toString();

if(a.equals(b))

{

System.out.println("The string is palidrome");

}

else

{

System.out.println("The string is not a palindrome");

}}}

public static boolean isNumberPalindrome(int str) {

ReplyDeletereturn str == Integer.parseInt(new StringBuilder().append(str).reverse().toString());

}

Palindrome Check using HashSet:

ReplyDeleteimport java.util.HashSet;

import java.util.Set;

public class p16 {

public static void main(String[] args) {

String a = "malayalam1";

System.out.println(ispalindrome(a));

}

private static boolean ispalindrome(String a) {

Set set = new HashSet<>();

for (int i = 0; i < a.length(); i++) {

char ch = a.charAt(i);

if(set.contains(ch)) {

set.remove(ch);

}else {

set.add(ch);

}

}

return set.size() <= 1 ;

}

}

Integer i = 1221;

ReplyDeletechar word[] = i.toString().toCharArray();

int i1 = 0;

int i2 = word.length - 1;

while (i2 > i1) {

if (word[i1] != word[i2]) {

System.out.println("not palindrome");

break;

}

++i1;

--i2;

}

if(i==s.length()%2)

ReplyDelete{

System.out.println("Palidrome");

}

public class NumberPalindrome {

ReplyDeletepublic static boolean isPalindrome(int number)

{

int rem=0,reverse=0,start=number;

while(number!=0)

{

rem=number%10;

reverse=(reverse*10) +rem;

System.out.println("rev= "+reverse);

number=number/10;

}

if(reverse==start)

return true;

return false;

}

}

It is harder to understand with numbers than with string.

ReplyDeleteYeah, you need to know how to get the last digit of an number (remainder of divide by 10) and how to reduce 3 digit to 2 digit (divide by 10). If you don't know this trick then its a difficult problem to solve.

DeleteThis program fails for numbers starting with a 0...Please correct your code..

ReplyDeletenumber starting with zero? that's not the valid number, how do you distinguish between 10 and 010? unless you are using string.

Deletepublic class Palanadrone {

ReplyDeletepublic static void main(String[] args)

{

//////////// for integer

int a=1551;

if(String.valueOf(a).equals(new StringBuffer(String.valueOf(a)).reverse().toString()))

System.out.println("the number is palandrone");

else

System.out.println("the number is not palandrone");

/////////// for string

String s4="teet";

if(s4.equals(new StringBuilder(s4).reverse().toString()))

System.out.println("the string is palandrone");

else

System.out.println("the string is not palandrone");

}

}

That's cool but in interview you may not be allowed to use the reverse() method, Can you solve this problem without using StringBuffer or StringBuilder and reverse method?
