C Program to Check Whether a Number is Magic Number or Not

Write a program in c to check whether a given integer is magic number or not
Here is the algorithm to check whether a number is magic number or not
  • Take a number N as input from user.
  • Find the sum of the digits of N(Lets call it digitSum).
  • Reverse the digits of digitSum(Lets call it reverse).
  • If product of digitSum and reverse is equal to the original number N, then N is magic number otherwise not a magic number.

C program to check whether a number is magic number or not

This program implements the above mentioned algorithm to check a number is magic number or not. It user two user defined helper function:

  • getReverse : Reverses the digits if passed number and returns it.
  • getSumOfDigit : Returns the sum of digits of passed number.

* C program to check a number is magic number or not 

int getReverse(int num);
int getSumOfDigit(int num);

int main () {
    int num, digitSum, reverse;

    printf("Enter a number\n");
    scanf("%d", &num);

    /* get sum of digits of input number */
    digitSum = getSumOfDigit(num);

    /* reverse the digits of digitSum*/
    reverse = getReverse(digitSum);

    if ((digitSum * reverse) == num) {
        printf("%d is a Magic Number\n", num);
    } else {
        printf("%d is not a Magic Number\n", num);

    return 0;
/* Function to reverse an integer  */
int getReverse(int num) {
    int r = 0;
    while (num > 0) {
        r = (r * 10) + (num % 10);
        num = num / 10;
    return r;
/* Function to calculate sum of digits of a number*/
int getSumOfDigit(int num){
    int sum = 0;
    while(num != 0){
        /* num%10 gives least significant digit of num */
        sum = sum + num%10;
        num = num/10; 
    return sum;
Program Output
Enter a number
1234 is not a Magic Number
Enter a number
1729 is a Magic Number
