# Check if N is divisible by a number which is composed of the digits from the set {A, B}

Given three integers **N**, **A** and **B**, the task is to find whether N is divisible by any number that contains only **A** and **B** as it’s digits.

**Examples:**

Input:N = 106, a = 3, b = 5

Output:Yes

106 is divisible by 53

Input:N = 107, a = 3, b = 5

Output:No

**Approach 1 (Recursive):** An efficient solution is to make all the numbers that contains **a** and **b** as their digits using recursive function starting with the numbers **a** and **b**. If function call is **fun(x)** then recursively call for **fun(x * 10 + a)** and **fun(x * 10 + b)**. If **n** is divisible by any of the number then print **Yes** else print **No**.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

**Output:**

Yes

**Approach 2 (Queue Based):** The idea is to generate all numbers (smaller than n) containing digits a and b. For every number check if it divides n or not. How to generate all numbers smaller than n? We use queue for this. Initially we push ‘a’ and ‘b’ to the queue. Then we run a loop while front of queue is smaller than n. We pop an item one by one and for ever popped item x, we generate next numbers x*10 + a and x*10 + b and enqueue them. Time complexity of this approach is O(n)

Please refer below post for implementation of this approach.
