# Deletion at the nth node of a Circular Linked List in Java

## Program to delete a Node at the nth node of a Circular Linked List

In the process of deletion at the nth node of a circular linked list we first check if there is some data present in the list or not as deletion is not possible form an empty list. If the list is not empty we traverse till the specific position and delete the specific node using the algorithm mentioned in this article below. We can also perform deletion from:-

• Beginning of the circular linked list.
• End of the circular linked list.

## Given below is the description of deletion from the nth Node of a Circular Linked List

Deletion from nth position in a circular linked list –

• If the list is empty we cannot delete element from it hence return as deletion is not possible.
• If there is data present in the nodes of the list, then
• Traverse till the specific position from where you want to delete an element.
• Then make next pointer of previous list as next of next node.
• Free the node that is present at specific position.
```public void deleteNthNode(int n)
{
int len = calcLen();

// Can only insert after 1st position
// Can't insert if position to insert is greater than size of Linked List
if(n < 1 || n > len)
{
System.out.println("Can't delete\n");

}
else
{
if(n == 1)
{
// head has to be deleted
return;
}
// required to traverse
Node previous = null;

// traverse to the nth node
while(--n > 0) {
previous = temp;
temp = temp.next;
}
// assigned next node of the previous node to nth node's next
previous.next = temp.next;
System.out.println("Deleted: " + temp.element);
}
}
```
