• Last Updated : 13 Apr, 2021

A Duck number is a positive number which has zeroes present in it, For example 3210, 8050896, 70709 are all Duck numbers. Please note that a numbers with only leading 0s is not considered as Duck Number. For example, numbers like 035 or 0012 are not considered as Duck Numbers. A number like 01203 is considered as Duck because there is a non-leading 0 present in it.

Examples :

Input : 707069
Output : It is a duck number.
Explanation: 707069 does not contains zeros at the beginning.

Input : 02364
Output : It is not a duck number.
Explanation: in 02364 there is a zero at the beginning of the number.
