I spent 4 hours trying to find out how I can add the digits of a number. Could you give me an idea?

Sorry Thinker but you program doesn't hack it. Its full of syntax errors and undeclared variables, and it just plain doesn't work right. Line 10 does NOT calculate the sum of the digits. If the input number is 15 then the sum of the digits is 1 + 5 = …

``````#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
int n = 12345;
int sum = 0;

while (n != 0) {
int c = n%10;
sum += c;
n /= 10;
}

printf("The sum is %d\n", sum);

return 0;

}``````

this should work just fine

> sorry buddy just try this out...
> #include<stdio.h>
> #include<conio.h>
> void main()

Great, just what we want around here, another void main, conio.h riddled post without code tags.

u cn jst tr ds out dat cn wrk 4 any num f long integer range sch as 123456789 etc.,

Would you like to try that again in English?

A search, perhaps?

``````void main()
{
int
clrscr();
printf("Enter the number");
scanf("%d",&a);
do
{
n=a%10;
flag=(flag*10)+n;
}
while(a==0);
printf("The sum of digits of a number %d is %d",a,flag);
getch();
}``````

Sorry Thinker but you program doesn't hack it. Its full of syntax errors and undeclared variables, and it just plain doesn't work right. Line 10 does NOT calculate the sum of the digits. If the input number is 15 then the sum of the digits is 1 + 5 = 6. You are on the right track with line 9 but you flunked the course with line 10

The logic is there in your mind. But you have posted something that is very much far from a sound error-free program. Either you were in too much hurry or you need to clear your basics.

u just declare the variables .... forgot to do so ....

``````#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
int n = 12345;
int sum = 0;

while (n != 0) {
int c = n%10;
sum += c;
n /= 10;
}

printf("The sum is %d\n", sum);

return 0;

}``````

this should work just fine

sorry buddy just try this out...

scanf("%d",&a);

sum=sum+n;
a=a/10;
}
while(a=0);
printf("The sum of digits of the number %d is %d",a,sum);

i think this should work....

}while(a=0) makes the while loop execute only once.

you mean while (a != 0)

you should verify your programs before submitting

yep got my mistake ... thanks for the help.
just made a mistake to type the program twice....

``````#include<stdio.h>
#include<conio.h>
void main()
{
int n,s=0,r;
clrscr();
printf("Enter the number");
scanf("%d",&n);
do
{
r=n%10;
s=s+r;
n=n/10;
}while(n!=0);
printf("the sum is %d",s);
getch();
}``````

- do not use kiddie-leet-speak
- use code tags when posting code
- do not resurrect year-old threads
- code formatting
- don't use scanf
- void main/int main/main
- getch() isn't standard C, getchar() is.
- clrscr();
- use meaningful names for your variables.

Should I continue? :)

This code can solve your problem..

how can i go for looping loop concept in c.????
how to print

*** in c using for loop

``````/*sum of digits*/

In this one i am reducing the sum untill it reaches less than 10
I think this is the most simplest way to find the sum of Digits of a number.

Try again -- your program is 100% wrong.

@Ancient Dragon . My above program is to find the sum of digits of number until it reaches less than 10. for example if the input is 999 then the sum of 999 is 27 since the sum is not less than 10, so it needs to be summed once again then the final answer is 9.This is what i have done in the above code, Is there any worng with my code? If its wrong suggest me where it occured? thank you.

Is there any worng with my code?

Well, yes. Where's the loop? Test it yourself, it doesn't do anything like you said it should. All it does is either print the number of it's less than 10 or prints the number mod 9. In either event, the program is pretty much useless as it is.

``````#include<stdio.h>
int main(){
int num;
scanf("%d",&num);

if(num>0&&num<10){
int ans = num;
}
else if(num>=10&&num<100){
int remdr = num%10;
int tens = num/10;

int ans = remdr + tens;
printf("the answer is %d + %d = %d\n", tens,remdr,ans);

}

else if (num>=100&&num<1000){
int remdr = num%100;
int hunds = num/100;
int tens = num-((100*hunds)/10);
int ans = remdr + tens + hunds;

printf("the answer is %d + %d + %d = %d",hunds,tens,remdr,ans);

}
else {
printf("out of range");
}
return 0;}
``````

works up to 999... :) you can follow the concept and continue

oops... huge mistake >.< i guess it'll only work correctly to 99 .. i'll try to fix the problem. forgive me

correct answer coming right up people...!!

``````#include<stdio.h>
int main(){
int num;
scanf("%d",&num);

if(num>0&&num<10){
int ans = num;
}
else if(num>=10&&num<100){
int remdr = num%10;
int tens = num/10;

int ans = remdr + tens;
printf("the answer is %d + %d = %d\n", tens,remdr,ans);

}

else if (num>=100&&num<1000){
int remdr = num%100;
int hunds = num/100;
int tens = remdr/10;
int remdr2 = remdr%10;

int ans = remdr2 + tens + hunds;

printf("the answer is %d + %d + %d = %d",hunds,tens,remdr2,ans);

}
else {
printf("out of range");
}
return 0;}
``````

there it is.. and it works up to 999 :)

``````#include<iostream>
#include<math.h>

using namespace std;

int main(){
int N=0 ;
cin>>N;
int sum=0;
while(N!=0){

sum += (N%10);
N = N / 10;
}
cout << sum << endl;

}
``````

int num1,num2;
cout<<"enter num1 :"<<endl;
cin>>num1;
cout<<"Enter num2 :"<<endl;
cin>>num2;
cout<<num1<<"+"<<num2 <<" = "<<num1+num2<<endl;
