# Count of alphabets having ASCII value less than and greater than k

Given a string, the task is to count the number of alphabets having ASCII value less than and greater than or equal to a given integer k.

Examples:

```Input: str = "GeeksForGeeks", k = 90
Output: 3, 10
G, F, G have ascii values less than 90.
e, e, k, s, o, r, e, e, k, s have ascii values
greater than or equal to 90

Input: str = "geeksforgeeks", k = 90
Output: 0, 13
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Approach: Start traversing the string and check if the current character has ASCII value less than k. If yes then increment the count.
So, Remaining characters will have ASCII values greater than or equal to k. So, print len_of_String – count for characters with ASCII values greater than or equal to k.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

 `// C++ implementation of the above approach ` `#include ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` `  `// Function to count the number of ` `// characters whose ascii value is less than k ` `int` `CountCharacters(string str, ``int` `k) ` `{ ` `    ``// Initialising the count to 0 ` `    ``int` `cnt = 0; ` ` `  `    ``int` `len = str.length(); ` `    ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < len; i++) { ` `        ``// Incrementing the count ` `        ``// if the value is less ` `        ``if` `(str[i] < k) ` `            ``cnt++; ` `    ``} ` ` `  `    ``// return the count ` `    ``return` `cnt; ` `} ` ` `  `// Driver code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` `    ``string str = ``"GeeksForGeeks"``; ` `    ``int` `k = 90; ` ` `  `    ``int` `count = CountCharacters(str, k); ` `    ``cout << ``"Characters with ASCII values"` `            ``" less than K are "` `         ``<< count; ` ` `  `    ``cout << ``"\nCharacters with ASCII values"` `            ``" greater than or equal to K are "` `         ``<< str.length() - count; ` ` `  `    ``return` `0; ` `} `

## Java

 `// Java implementation of the above approach ` `import` `java.util.*; ` ` `  `class` `GFG { ` `     `  `// Function to count the number of ` `// characters whose ascii value is less than k ` `static` `int` `CountCharacters(String str, ``int` `k) ` `{ ` `    ``// Initialising the count to 0 ` `    ``int` `cnt = ``0``; ` ` `  `    ``int` `len = str.length(); ` `    ``for` `(``int` `i = ``0``; i < len; i++) { ` `        ``// Incrementing the count ` `        ``// if the value is less ` `        ``if` `(((``int``)str.charAt(i)) < k) ` `            ``cnt++; ` `    ``} ` ` `  `    ``// return the count ` `    ``return` `cnt; ` `} ` ` `  `// Driver code ` `public` `static` `void` `main(String args[]) ` `{ ` `    ``String str = ``"GeeksForGeeks"``; ` `    ``int` `k = ``90``; ` ` `  `    ``int` `count = CountCharacters(str, k); ` `    ``System.out.println(``"Characters with ASCII values less than K are "``+count); ` ` `  `    ``System.out.println(``"Characters with ASCII values greater than or equal to K are "``+(str.length() - count)); ` ` `  `} ` `} `

Output:

```Characters with ASCII values less than K are 3
Characters with ASCII values greater than or equal to K are 10
```
