# How to get the first digit of a number in java – Java Program to Find Product of First and Last Digit of a Number

How to get the first digit of a number in java: In the previous article, we have seen Java Program to Find Sum of First and Last Digit of a Number

In this article we will see how we can find the product of first and last digit of a number using Java programming language.

## Java Program to Find Product of First and Last Digit of a Number

Get first digit of int java: If a number is given then starting digit of the number is called as first and end digit of the number is called as last digit of number.

For example:

If the number is 89453 then first digit is 8 and last digit is 3.

So the product of first and last digit = 8*3 =24

Let’s see different ways

### Method-1: Java Program to Find Product of First and Last Digit of a Number By Finding Only First Digit Inside While Loop and Last Digit Outside Loop (Static Input Value)

Approach:

• Declare an integer variable say ‘number‘ and initialize a value.
• Declare two integer variables firstDigit and lastDigit and initialize both to 0.
• Find last digit by lastDigit=number%10
• Inside while loop find last digit by rem=number%10 and then number=number/10 and continuing the while loop till number value becomes 0.
• After loop completes ‘rem‘ has the first digit.
• Then find the product of of firstDigit and lastDigit

Program:

public class Main
{
public static void main(String args[])
{
//a number declared
int number = 63365;
//storing the number value in a temporary variable say 'temp'
int temp=number;
//declaring two integer variable firstDigit and lastDigit
//and initializing both with value as 0
int firstDigit=0;
int lastDigit=0;

//find last digit of number
lastDigit=number%10;

//countinue the loop till the number becomes 0
//inside loop variable 'firstDigit' will give the first digit at the end of while loop
while(number!=0)
{
int rem = number%10;
firstDigit=rem;
number= number/10;
}
System.out.println("Number is: "+temp);
System.out.println("First digit of number: "+ firstDigit );
System.out.println("Last digit of number: "+ lastDigit);
System.out.println("Product of first and last digit of number: "+ (firstDigit*lastDigit));
}
}
Output:

Number is: 63365
First digit of number: 6
Last digit of number: 5
Product of first and last digit of number: 30

### Method-2: Java Program to Find Product of First and Last Digit of a Number By Finding Only First Digit Inside While Loop and Last Digit Outside Loop (User Input Value)

Approach:

• Declare an integer variable say ‘number‘ and take the value of it as user input.
• Declare two integer variables firstDigit and lastDigit and initialize both to 0.
• Find last digit by lastDigit=number%10
• Inside while loop find last digit by rem=number%10 and then number=number/10 and continuing the while loop till number value becomes 0.
• After loop completes ‘rem‘ has the first digit.
• Then find the product of firstDigit and lastDigit

Program:

import java.util.*;

public class Main
{
public static void main(String args[])
{
Scanner sc=new Scanner(System.in);

//taking a number input from user
System.out.println("Enter a number: ");
int number = sc.nextInt();
//storing the number value in a temporary variable say 'temp'
int temp=number;
//declaring two integer variable firstDigit and lastDigit
//and initializing both with value as 0
int firstDigit=0;
int lastDigit=0;

//find last digit of number
lastDigit=number%10;

//countinue the loop till the number becomes 0
//inside loop variable 'firstDigit' will give the first digit at the end of while loop
while(number!=0)
{
int rem = number%10;
firstDigit=rem;
number= number/10;
}
System.out.println("Number is: "+temp);
System.out.println("First digit of number: "+ firstDigit );
System.out.println("Last digit of number: "+ lastDigit);
System.out.println("Product of first and last digit of number: "+ (firstDigit*lastDigit));
}
}
Output:

Enter a number:
45678
Number is: 45678
First digit of number: 4
Last digit of number: 8
Product of first and last digit of number: 32

### Method-3: Java Program to Find Product of First and Last Digit of a Number – Finding First Digit  By Dividing Number with power of 10 ^ (totalDigits-1) and Last Digit By Number%10

Approach:

• Declare an integer variable say ‘number‘ and initialize a value.
• Declare two integer variables firstDigit and lastDigit and initialize both to 0.
• Find last digit by lastDigit=number%10
• Find first digit by firstDigit=number/((int) Math.pow(10, total_digits-1))
• Then find product of firstDigit and lastDigit

Program:

import java.util.*;

public class Main
{
public static void main(String args[])
{
Scanner sc=new Scanner(System.in);

//taking a number input from user
System.out.println("Enter a number: ");
int number = sc.nextInt();
//storing the number value in a temporary variable say 'temp'
int temp=number;
//declaring two integer variable firstDigit and lastDigit
//and initializing both with value as 0
int firstDigit=0;
int lastDigit=0;
//initializing totalDigits as 0
int totalDigits=0;

//find last digit of number
lastDigit=number%10;

//countinue the loop till the number becomes 0
//temp holds the value of number
while(temp!=0)
{
temp= temp/10;
totalDigits++;
}

//find first digit of number
firstDigit=number/((int) Math.pow(10, totalDigits-1));

System.out.println("Number is: "+number);
System.out.println("Total Digits: "+totalDigits);
System.out.println("First digit of number: "+ firstDigit );
System.out.println("Last digit of number: "+ lastDigit);
System.out.println("Product of first and last digit of number: "+ (firstDigit*lastDigit));
}
}
Output:

Enter a number:
56478
Number is: 56478
Total Digits: 5
First digit of number: 5
Last digit of number: 8
Product of first and last digit of number: 13
