# JavaScript: Reverse a number

## JavaScript Function: Exercise-1 with Solution

Write a JavaScript function that reverse a number.
Sample Data and output:
Example x = 32243;
Expected Output: 34223

Pictorial Presentation: Sample Solution:

HTML Code:

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

</body>
</html>
```
```

JavaScript Code:

``````function reverse_a_number(n)
{
n = n + "";
return n.split("").reverse().join("");
}
console.log(Number(reverse_a_number(32243)));
```
```

Sample Output:

```34223
```

Explanation:
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

Shorten an array using its length property

A great way of shortening an array is by redefining its length property.

```let array = [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 6, 8, 9]
array.length = 4
// Result: [0, 1, 2, 3]
```

Important to know though is that this is a destructive way of changing the array. This means you lose all the other values that used to be in the array.
