Given a number N, find the remainder when the first digit of N is divided by its last digit.

**Examples:**

Input:N = 1234Output:1 First digit = 1 Last digit = 4 Remainder = 1 % 4 = 1Input:N = 5223Output:2 First digit = 5 Last digit = 3 Remainder = 5 % 3 = 2

**Approach:** Find the first digit and the last digit of the number. Find then the remainder when the first digit is divided by the last digit.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

`// C++ program to find the remainder ` `// when the First digit of a number ` `// is divided by its Last digit ` ` ` `#include <bits/stdc++.h> ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` ` `// Function to find the remainder ` `void` `findRemainder(` `int` `n) ` `{ ` ` ` `// Get the last digit ` ` ` `int` `l = n % 10; ` ` ` ` ` `// Get the first digit ` ` ` `while` `(n >= 10) ` ` ` `n /= 10; ` ` ` `int` `f = n; ` ` ` ` ` `// Compute the remainder ` ` ` `int` `remainder = f % l; ` ` ` ` ` `cout << remainder << endl; ` `} ` ` ` `// Driver code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` ` ` ` ` `int` `n = 5223; ` ` ` ` ` `findRemainder(n); ` ` ` ` ` `return` `0; ` `} ` |
