JavaScript: Reverse a number

Sample Solution:

HTML Code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<meta charset=utf-8 />
<title>Reverse a number</title>

JavaScript Code:

function reverse_a_number(n)
	n = n + "";
	return n.split("").reverse().join("");

Sample Output:


Assume n = 1000.
Convert a number to a string :
Code : -> n = n + "";
Note : There are different ways to convert number to string :

  • String literal -> str = "" + num + "";
  • String constructor -> str = String(num);
  • toString -> str = num.toString();
  • String Literal simple -> str = "" + num;

The split() method is used to split a String object into an array of strings by separating the string into substrings.
Code : console.log('1000'.split(""));
Output : ["1", "0", "0", "0"]

The reverse() method is used to reverse an array in place. The first array element becomes the last and the last becomes the first.
Code : console.log(["1", "0", "0", "0"].reverse());
Output : ["0", "0", "0", "1"]

The join() method is used to join all elements of an array into a string.
Code : console.log(["1", "0", "0", "0"].reverse().join(""));
The Number constructor contains constants and methods for working with numbers. Values of other types can be converted to numbers using the Number() function.
Output : 1

JavaScript: Tips of the Day

How to check whether a string contains a substring in JavaScript?

ECMAScript 6 introduced String.prototype.includes:

const string = "foo";
const substring = "oo";


includes doesn't have Internet Explorer support, though. In ECMAScript 5 or older environments, use String.prototype.indexOf, which returns -1 when a substring cannot be found:

var string = "foo";
var substring = "oo";

console.log(string.indexOf(substring) !== -1);
