# Check whether the given floating point number is a palindrome

• Difficulty Level : Medium
• Last Updated : 17 May, 2021

Given a floating-point number N, the task is to check whether it is palindrome or not.

Input: N = 123.321
Output: Yes
Input: N = 122.1
Output: No

Approach:

• First, convert the given floating-point number into a character array.
• Initialize the low to first index and high to the last index.
• While low < high:
• If the character at low is not equal to the character at high then exit and print “No”.
• If the character at low is equal to the character at high then continue after incrementing low and decrementing high…
• If the above loop completes successfully then print “Yes”.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

 `// C++ implementation of the approach``#include ``using` `namespace` `std;` `// Function that returns true if num is palindrome``bool` `isPalindrome(``float` `num)``{``    ` `    ``// Convert the given floating point number``    ``// into a string``    ``stringstream ss;``    ``ss << num;``    ``string s;``    ``ss >> s;``    ` `    ``// Pointers pointing to the first and``    ``// the last character of the string``    ``int` `low = 0;``    ``int` `high = s.size() - 1;` `    ``while` `(low < high)``    ``{` `        ``// Not a palindrome``        ``if` `(s[low] != s[high])``            ``return` `false``;` `        ``// Update the pointers``        ``low++;``        ``high--;``    ``}``    ``return` `true``;``}` `// Driver code``int` `main()``{``    ``float` `n = 123.321f;` `    ``if` `(isPalindrome(n))``        ``cout << ``"Yes"``;``    ``else``        ``cout << ``"No"``;` `    ``return` `0;``}` `// This code is contributed by Rajput-Ji`
