## C Program to Reverse the Elements in array using pointers

### Description

```Get array size n and n elements of array, then reverse the n elements.
Input:
5
5 7 9 3 1
Output:
1 3 9 7 5```

### Solution

```#include <stdio.h>

#include <stdlib.h>
int main()

{

int *a,n,i,j,temp;

printf("Enter size of array:");
scanf("%d",&n);

a=calloc(sizeof(int),n);
printf("Enter %d Elements:",n);
for(i=0;i<n;i++)

{

scanf("%d",a+i);

}

for(i=0,j=n-1;i<j;i++,j--)

{

temp=*(a+i);
*(a+i)=*(a+j);
*(a+j)=temp;
}

printf("After reversing the array:\n");
for(i=0;i<n;i++)

{

printf("%d",*(a+i));

}

return 0;

}
```

### Explanation

```calloc() is predefined function allocates memory of specified bytes.
Number of bytes is specified as (4,n), it means n 4 bytes. Since we are using integers, specified as 4bytes.

*a denotes first four bytes,  *(a+1) denotes second four bytes, *(a+2) denotes third four bytes and so on.,

initialize i to first location of array and j to last location of array using
i=0
j=n-1

swap the elements in location i and j, then increment i by 1 and decrement j by 1.
t=*(a+i)
*(a+i)=*(a+j)
*(a+j)=temp

repeat the above step till i is less than j ```
