thankfully, Java has the ability to loop.

// declare appropriately sized int array

for( int i = 0; i < string.length(); ++i ) {
int n = Integer.parseInt( string.substring( i, i+1 ) );
//store n in array
}

Hi Imran,

Alternatively, you can convert the String to int. Then use the % and / to extract the int value as suggested in this thread.

Hi Imran,

If you're trying to add up the individual digit of a number, you don't need to store them in an array.

For example:


After getting the sum, you can find the remainder for (sum / 10) by using % operator.



i konw n+n wont work beacsue its just gonna add n to the same number.
Could you show us the code? Maybe we can point out the mistakes (if there's any) for you.
