Its concat i.e. b followed by a. Just need to do some trick

#include <stdio.h>

#define myfunc(a,c) b##a

int main()
    int c;
    c = myfunc(20,30);
    printf("%d\n", c);
    return 0;

I think there is no other way except string concatenation and arithmetic operation for your problem.
I would give you simple arithmetic logic

int a=20;
int b=30;
int c=(b*100)+a;

if you tell your purpose i would give a better solution
thank you.
