Convert given string to a valid mobile number
  • Last Updated : 17 Jun, 2021

Given a string M consisting of letters, digits and symbols, the task is to convert the string to a valid mobile number by removing all characters except the digits in the following format:

  • Form a substring of 3 digits while the length of the remaining string is greater than 3.
  • Enclose each substring with brackets “()” and separate them with “-“.

If a valid mobile number cannot be obtained, i.e. if the string does not consist of 10 digits, then print -1. Otherwise, print the string obtained.

Examples:

Input: M = “91 234rt5%34*0 3”
Output: “(912)-(345)-(340)-(3)”
Explanation: After removing all extra characters, M = “9123453403”. Therefore, the final string obtained is “(912)-(345)-(340)-(3)”.

Input: M=”9 9 ry7%64 9 7″
Output: “Invalid”
Explanation: After removing extra characters M=”9976497″. Since the length of the string is not equal to 10, the required output is -1.



Approach: Follow the below steps to solve the problem:

  • Initialize a string, say S and append all digits of M in S in the given order.
  • Now, if the length of S is not 10, print “Invalid”, and end the program.
  • Otherwise, if the length of the string S is 10, make a group of 3 characters and enclose it within the brackets “()” and make separate it with “-“.
  • Print final string as S.

Below is the solution for the above problem.

C++




// C++ program for the above approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to print the valid
// and formatted phone number
void Validate(string M)
{
    // Length of given string
    int len = M.size();
 
    // Store digits in temp
    string temp = "";
 
    // Iterate given M
    for (int i = 0; i < len; i++) {
        // If any digit, append it to temp
        if (isdigit(M[i]))
            temp += M[i];
    }
 
    // Find new length of string
    int nwlen = temp.size();
 
    // If length is not equal to 10
    if (nwlen != 10) {
        cout << "Invalid\n";
        return;
    }
 
    // Store final result
    string res = "";
 
    // Make groups of 3 digits and
    // enclose them within () and
    // separate them with "-"
    // 0 to 2 index 1st group
    string x = temp.substr(0, 3);
    res += "(" + x + ")-";
 
    // 3 to 5 index 2nd group
    x = temp.substr(3, 3);
    res += "(" + x + ")-";
 
    // 6 to 8 index 3rd group
    x = temp.substr(6, 3);
    res += "(" + x + ")-";
 
    // 9 to 9 index last group
    x = temp.substr(9, 1);
    res += "(" + x + ")";
 
    // Print final result
    cout << res << "\n";
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
 
    // Given string
    string M = "91 234rt5%34*0 3";
 
    // Fuction Call
    Validate(M);

    String x = temp.substring(0, 3);
    res += "(" + x + ")-";
 
    // 3 to 5 index 2nd group
    x = temp.substring(3, 6);
    res += "(" + x + ")-";
 
    // 6 to 8 index 3rd group
    x = temp.substring(6, 9);
    res += "(" + x + ")-";
 
    // 9 to 9 index last group
    x = temp.substring(9, 10);
    res += "(" + x + ")";
 
    // Print final result
    System.out.print(res+ "\n");

    // Fuction Call
    Validate(M);
