Count of m digit integers that are divisible by an integer n
  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 16 Apr, 2021

Given two numbers m and n, count number of m digit numbers that are divisible by n.
Examples: 
 

Input : m = 2 
        n = 6
Output : 15
Two digit numbers that are divisible by 6
are 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, ....., 96.

Input : m = 3 
        n = 5
Output :180

 

A simple solution is two try all m digit numbers. For every number, check if it is divisible by n. If yes, we increment count. 
An efficient solution involves following steps. 
The idea is based on the fact that starting from first divisible number, every n-th number is divisible by n. 
 

  1. Find largest m digit number.
  2. Find largest m-1 digit number.
  3. Divide both number by n and subtract later from prior.

Below is the implementation of above steps.
 

C++




// C++ program to count m digit numbers having
// n as divisor.
#include<bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Returns count of m digit numbers having n
// as divisor
int findCount(int m, int n)
{   
    // generating largest number of m digit
    int num1 = 0;
    for (int i = 0; i < m; i++)
        num1 = (num1 * 10) + 9;
 
    // generating largest number of m-1 digit
    int num2 = 0;
    for (int i = 0; i < (m - 1); i++)
        num2 = (num2 * 10) + 9;
 
    // returning number of dividend
    return ((num1 / n) - (num2 / n));
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int m = 2, n = 6;
    printf("%d\n", findCount(m, n));
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java program to count m digit numbers having
// n as divisor.
 
class Main
{
    // Returns count of m digit numbers having n
    // as divisor
    static int findCount(int m, int n)
    {   
        // generating largest number of m digit
        int num1 = 0;
        for (int i = 0; i < m; i++)
            num1 = (num1 * 10) + 9;
      
        // generating largest number of m-1 digit
        int num2 = 0;
        for (int i = 0; i < (m - 1); i++)
            num2 = (num2 * 10) + 9;
      
        // returning number of dividend
        return ((num1 / n) - (num2 / n));
    }
     
    // main function
    public static void main (String[] args)
    {
        int m = 2, n = 6;
        System.out.println(findCount(m, n));
    }
}
