Check if a number is jumbled or not
  • Difficulty Level : Basic
  • Last Updated : 17 May, 2018

Write a program to check if a given integer is jumbled or not. A number is said to be Jumbled if for every digit, its neighbours digit differs by max 1.

Examples :

Input : 6765
Output : True
All neighbour digits differ by atmost 1.

Input : 1223
Output : True

Input : 1235
Output : False

To find if a number is jumbled, we just need to check if a digit has a neighbour
with difference greater than 1. If such digit is found, the number is non-jumbled.

Below is the implementation of above idea :

C++




// CPP code to check if a 
// number is jumbled or not
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
  
// Function to check if a 
// number is jumbled or not
bool checkJumbled(int num)
{
    // Single digit number
    if (num / 10 == 0)
        return true;
  
    // Checking every digit 
    // through a loop
    while (num != 0) 
    {
  
        // All digits were checked
        if (num / 10 == 0)
            return true;
  
        // Digit at index i
        int digit1 = num % 10;
  
        // Digit at index i-1
        int digit2 = (num / 10) % 10;
  
        // If difference is 
        // greater than 1
        if (abs(digit2 - digit1) > 1)
            return false;
  
        num = num / 10;
    }
  
    // Number checked
    return true;
}
  
// Driver code
int main()
{
  
    //-1234 to be checked
    int num = -1234;
  
    if (checkJumbled(num))
        cout << "True \n";
    else
        cout << "False \n";
  
    // 287 to be checked
    num = -1247;
  
    if (checkJumbled(num))
        cout << "True \n";
    else
        cout << "False \n";
  
    return 0;
}


Java




// Java code to check if a
// number is jumbled or not
import java.io.*;
  
class GFG
{
      
    // Function to check if a
    // number is jumbled or not
    static boolean checkJumbled(int num)
    {
        // Single digit number
        if (num / 10 == 0)
            return true;
      
        // Checking every digit
        // through a loop
        while (num != 0
        {
      
            // All digits were checked
            if (num / 10 == 0)
                return true;
      
            // Digit at index i
            int digit1 = num % 10;
      
            // Digit at index i-1
            int digit2 = (num / 10) % 10;
      
            // If difference is 
            // greater than 1
            if (Math.abs(digit2 - digit1) > 1)
                return false;
      
            num = num / 10;
        }
      
        // Number checked
        return true;
    }
      
    // Driver code
    public static void main (String[]args)
    {
        //-1234 to be checked
        int num = -1234;
      
        if (checkJumbled(num))
            System.out.println("True ");
        else
            System.out.println("False ");
      
        // 287 to be checked
        num = -1247;
      
        if (checkJumbled(num))
            System.out.println("True ");
                  
        else
            System.out.println("False ");
              
    }
}
