# TCS Coding Practice Question | Reverse a Number

Given a number, the task is to reverse this number using Command Line Arguments.

Examples:

```Input: num = 12345
Output: 54321

Input: num = 786
Output: 687
``` Approach:

• Since the number is entered as Command line Argument, there is no need for a dedicated input line
• Extract the input number from the command line argument
• This extracted number will be in String type.
• Convert this number into integer type and store it in a variable, say num
• Initialize a variable, say rev_num, to store the reverse of this number with 0
• Now loop through the number num till it becomes 0, i.e. (num > 0)
• In each iteration,
• Multiply rev_num by 10 and add remainder of num to it. This will store the last digit of num in rev_num
• Divide num by 10 to remove the last digit from it.
• After the loop has ended, rev_num has the reverse of num.
