# Write a program to check Armstrong number in C

Armstrong number in C is a special number which is equal to the sum of cubes of its digits. e.g. 153 = 1*1*1*+5*5*5+3*3*3=153

## Program to check Armstrong number in C

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

void main()
{
int n,rem,sum=0,tmp;
clrscr();
printf("Enter any number to check armstrong");
scanf("%d",&n);

tmp=n;//making copy of number to check for armstrong
while(n>0)
{
rem=n%10;
sum=sum+rem*rem*rem;
n=n/10;
}

if(sum==tmp)
{
printf("Given number is an Armstrong");
}
else
{
printf("Given number is not an Armstrong");
}
getch();
}
``````

## Output

`Enter any number to check Armstrong 252Given number is not an ArmstrongEnter any number to check Armstrong 153Given number is an Armstrong`

## Program Code Explanation

Above we write a program on Armstrong number in C. Let’s understand step by step. First, we input a number and store it in variable n and then make a duplicate copy of that variable to compare the result in last.

Execute a while loop until n>0 and fetch reminder in rem by dividing 10. This instruction will give us one digit of number n.

As per Armstrong program, we added the cube of digit of number n.

Finally, we check the sum with tmp variable. If both are equal so given number is Armstrong otherwise the number is not an Armstrong.
