# How to Reverse a Number in Java

In this post we’ll see how to reverse a number in Java. The Java program to reverse a number can be written in both iterative as well as recursive way. Both solutions are given here.

Logic for both of the method is similar; you need to do a modulo division by 10 to get the last digit and using that remainder you need to create the reversed number. In iterative method this will be done in a loop where as in a recursive method you will call the method again after removing the last digit.

#### Java code to reverse a number – Iterative and Recursive

```public class ReverseNumber {
public static void main(String[] args) {
int reverseNum = numberReverse(145);
System.out.println("Reversed number is " +reverseNum);
System.out.println("------------------");
reverseNum = numberReverseRecursive(1997, 0);
System.out.println("Reversed number is (recursive) " +reverseNum);
}

private static int numberReverse(int number){
int reverseNum = 0;
int remainder;
while (number > 0) {
remainder = number % 10;
reverseNum = (reverseNum * 10) + remainder;
number = number / 10;
}
return reverseNum;
}

// recursive method
private static int numberReverseRecursive(int number, int reverse){

if (number != 0){
reverse = reverse * 10 + (number % 10);
// calling method again
return numberReverseRecursive(number/10, reverse);

}else{
return reverse;
}
}
}
```

Output

```Reversed number is 541
------------------
Reversed number is (recursive) 7991
```
