i have two numbers...

1564656

1981676

i want to check if the first and the last number from a string of these numbers are the same or not...how would i do that. how would i just compare the first and a last number and ignore the other numbers in this string?

my code so far...

class lotto

{

public static void main(String[] args)

{

JOptionPane.showMessageDialog (null, " LOTTOMAX - PLAY - WIN");

String numgen =JOptionPane.showInputDialog (null, " ENTER 7 DIGIT NUMBER:" );

int playa1 = Integer.parseInt(numgen);

JOptionPane.showMessageDialog (null, playa1);

int LottoRandom = (int)(Math.random()*10000000);

JOptionPane.showMessageDialog (null, LottoRandom);

if (playa1 >10000000 )

{

JOptionPane.showMessageDialog (null, " INVALID NUMBER. ");

}
