Python Program to Find Sum of First and Last Digit

  • Last Updated : 23 Aug, 2021

Given a positive integer N(at least contain two digits). The task is to write a Python program to add the first and last digit of the given number N.

Input: N = 1247



Output: 8

Explanation: First digit is 1 and Last digit is 7. So, addition of these two (1 + 7) is equal to 8.

Input: N = 73

Output: 10

Method 1: String implementation

  • Take input in the form of String or typecast given input in String.
  • Now pick the 0th index of the String and typecast it into Integer and store it in a variable.
  • The same thing with the -1st index and also store in another variable.
  • Now add these two variables and
  • print them as an Output.

Note:  We can access the first element of String using string[0] and the last element of String using string[-1].

String Representation


Python3




# We have a number
number = 1247
  
# We are type casting it in string
number = str(number)
  
# Storing first and last digit in a variable
# after type casting into Integer.
first_digit = int(number[0])
last_digit = int(number[-1])
  
# Adding these two variables
addition = first_digit + last_digit
  
# Display our output
print('Addition of first and last digit of the number is'
      addition)

Output:

Addition of first and last digit of the number is 8

Method 2: Solve it using an integer

  • We have given a positive Integer.
  • After dividing by 10, store the remainder in a result variable.
  • Continue the loop until the number becomes less than 9.
  • Each time in the loop, divide the number by 10(integer division).
  • After the end of the loop.
  • Add the number in the result variable.
  • Display the result variable as the output.

Note: Whenever we divide any number with 10, we get the last digit as the remainder. If we divide any number with 100, we get the last two-digit as the remainder.

Python3




# We have a number.
number = 1247
  
# Assigning last digit of the number in res
# variable.
res = number % 10
  
# Now, continue a loop until
# the number becomes less than 9.
while number > 9:
  
    # integer division of the number and reassigning
    # it.
    number = number // 10
  
# Here, our number only contain one digit.
# So, add this number in res variable.
res += number
  
# Now, display our output
print('Addition of first and last digit of number is', res)

Output:

Addition of first and last digit of the number is 8

Time Complexity: O(n), where n is how many digits are there in the given number.
