# Need help, how to get the last number of a bigger number?

425

Hi, i'm having a problem, i need to make a variable to get the last number from a bigger number:

example:

```double a= 10003;

double b= // this double should get the last number of "a", so it should =3. How can i do this?```

Thanks for any help

Hello, one easy way is to convert double to string using the function DoubleToString() and then to get the last character of the string with StringGetChar(). To find the string length use StringLen() function. When you find the last character then you can convert it again to double with StringToDouble().

Perhaps there is another way. MQL language is very flexible. But the above solution will work i am sure.

Hi, i tried what you explained:

```double number= 1002; //

string numberstring= DoubleToStr(number); // convert in a string

string numberstring2=StringGetChar(numberstring,4); //get the forth value

Comment (numberstring2);
```

But don't get the correct number

Hello again,

The first character from a string has position 0. This means that you have to use:

`string numberstring2=StringGetChar(numberstring,3); //get the forth value`

To get the last character.

You need the modulo function. 1002 % 10 = 2 or you can use MathMod().

Hi, i can't make it work, i need a code example, can someone give me the complete code?

double a=1002

so please what should i code next to get the last number?

double b= 2?

1) Translate number to string
2) Get the length of string.
3) Extract the last char of string to the new one string (length-1)
4) Translate last char to the number

String st="1004";
int a=length(st);
string z = StrSubstr(st, a-1);
int res=StrToInt(z);

1-

double number= 1004;
string numberstring= DoubleToStr(number);

2- string numberstring2=StringLen(numberstring);

3- string numberstring3 = StringGetChar( numberstring2,4);

4- Comment (numberstring3);

Doesn't work, how can i solve this?

not tested:

```double a= 10003;
int lastNum = ((int)a)%10;```
