Given a range [L, R]. The task is to count the numbers in the range having difference between the sum of digits at even position and sum of digits at odd position is a Prime Number. Consider the position of least significant digit in the number as an odd position.
Input : L = 1, R = 50 Output : 6 Explanation : Only, 20, 30, 31, 41, 42 and 50 are valid numbers. Input : L = 50, R = 100 Output : 18
Prerequisites :Digit DP
Approach : Firstly, if we are able to count the required numbers up to R i.e. in the range [0, R], we can easily reach our answer in the range [L, R] by solving for from zero to R and then subtracting the answer we get after solving from zero to L – 1. Now, we need to define the DP states.
- Since we can consider our number as a sequence of digits, one state is the position at which we are currently at. This position can have values from 0 to 18 if we are dealing with the numbers up to 1018. In each recursive call, we try to build the sequence from left to right by placing a digit from 0 to 9.
- First state is the sum of the digits at even positions we have placed so far.
- Second state is the sum of the digits at odd positions we have placed so far.
- Another state is the boolean variable tight which tells the number we are trying to build has already become smaller than R so that in the upcoming recursive calls we can place any digit from 0 to 9. If the number has not become smaller, the maximum limit of digit we can place is digit at the current position in R.
Also, when we reach the base condition, we need to check whether the required difference is a prime number or not. Since the highest number in range is 1018, the maximum sum at either even or odd positions can be at max 9 times 9 and hence the maximum difference. So, we need to check only prime numbers only upto 100 at base condition.
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
- Queries for the difference between the count of composite and prime numbers in a given range
- Count of Numbers in a Range divisible by m and having digit d in even positions
- Count of numbers between range having only non-zero digits whose sum of digits is N and number is divisible by M
- Count numbers in given range such that sum of even digits is greater than sum of odd digits
- Sum of all the prime numbers with the count of digits ≤ D
- Count of numbers from range [L, R] that end with any of the given digits
- Count of numbers from range [L, R] whose sum of digits is Y
- Sum of numbers in a range [L, R] whose count of divisors is prime
- Numbers in range [L, R] such that the count of their divisors is both even and prime
- Count numbers from range whose prime factors are only 2 and 3
- Count of Numbers in Range where the number does not contain more than K non zero digits
- Count numbers in range L-R that are divisible by all of its non-zero digits
- Count of all even numbers in the range [L, R] whose sum of digits is divisible by 3
- Count numbers in a range having GCD of powers of prime factors equal to 1
- Count total number of N digit numbers such that the difference between sum of even and odd digits is 1
