reverse a number using string

i have written a code to print reverse of a number using string but instead i am getting a random number which looks like a address. please point out the mistakes

int main(){

string n;


int a=n.length();

int b=a;

string d[a];

for (int i = 0; i < a; i++) {


b--; }

string d[a] will declare an array of strings.
But you want a simple string instead.
The proper syntax is string d(a,'.').
You have to provide a character also by which all characters of the strings are needed to be initialized (which I've provided as '.' here).
