# How do I split the letters and numbers to two arrays from a string in PHP

PHPServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

For this, use preg_split() along with array_shift() and array_pop(). Let’s say the following is our string with letters and numbers

$values = "5j4o5h8n"; We want to display the numbers and letters in separate arrays. ## Example The PHP code is as follows Live Demo <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <body> <?php$values = "5j4o5h8n";
$singleValues = preg_split("/\d+/",$values);
array_shift($singleValues); print_r($singleValues);
$resultNumber= preg_split("/[a-z]+/",$values);
array_pop($resultNumber); print_r($resultNumber);
?>
</body>
</html>

## Output

This will produce the following output

Array ( [0] => j [1] => o [2] => h [3] => n ) Array ( [0] => 5 [1] => 4 [2] => 5 [3] => 8 )
