You can store them in array. Digit after digit. The best way is remembered last digit of number on *0*-th position and so on. For example number *5103* is in array *A* remembered as *A[0]=3*, *A[1]=0*, *A[2]=1* and *A[3]=5*. With this representation is easy to add two such numbers, add to this number classic iteger, multiply or division by integer.

Harder is to multiply two such numbers, or divide them.

The main idea is to store them as integer arrays.addition and subtraction is straight forward.multiplication and division is slightly more complex. Please read this awesome tutorial by @kuruma for more information.
