Sum up a number until it becomes one digit - JavaScript

JavascriptWeb DevelopmentFront End TechnologyObject Oriented Programming

We are required to write a JavaScript function that recursively sums up the digits of a number until it reduces to a single digit number. Do it without converting the number to String or any other data type.

Example

Following is the code −

const num = 546767643;
const sumDigit = (num, sum = 0) => {
if(num){
return sumDigit(Math.floor(num / 10), sum + (num % 10));
}
return sum;
};
const sumRepeatedly = num => {
while(num > 9){
num = sumDigit(num);
};
return num;
};
console.log(sumRepeatedly(num));

Output

This will produce the following output in console −
