Swap Two Numbers in a Cyclic Order in C

To swap numbers in a cyclic manner in a C program, you can use a temporary variable to store the value of one of the numbers while the other number is being assigned to it.

Program to Swap Two Numbers in a Cycle

Run
#include <stdio.h>

int main() {
int x = 10;
int y = 20;

printf("Before swapping: x = %d, y = %d\n", x, y);

int temp = x;
x = y;
y = temp;

printf("After swapping: x = %d, y = %d\n", x, y);

return 0;
}

Output

Before swapping: x = 10, y = 20
After swapping: x = 20, y = 10

Swap Three Numbers in a Cyclic Order in C

It is similar to swapping two numbers. The only difference is that there are three temporary variables to assign the values of three numbers.

Run
#include <stdio.h>

int main() {
  int x = 10;
  int y = 20;
  int z = 30;

  printf("Before swapping: x = %d, y = %d, z = %d\n", x, y, z);

  int temp1 = x;
  int temp2 = y;
  x = z;
  y = temp1;
  z = temp2;

  printf("After swapping: x = %d, y = %d, z = %d\n", x, y, z);

  return 0;
}

Output

Before swapping: x = 10, y = 20, z = 30
After swapping: x = 30, y = 10, z = 20

Swap Variables of Different Types in C Program

Run
#include <stdio.h>

union value {
  int i;
  float f;
  char c;
};

int main() {
  int x = 10;
  float y = 20.5;

  printf("Before swapping: x = %d, y = %f\n", x, y);

  union value temp;
  temp.i = x;
  x = (int) y;
  y = (float) temp.i;

  printf("After swapping: x = %d, y = %f\n", x, y);

  return 0;
}

Output

Before swapping: x = 10, y = 20.500000
After swapping: x = 20, y = 10.000000
