Given a large number N in the form of a string, the task is to determine the count of distinct numbers that can be formed by shuffling the digits of number N.

Note: 

  • N may contain leading zeros. 
  • The number itself is also taken into count.
  • Since the answer could be very large, print result modulo 109+7.

Examples:

Input: N = “23”
Output: 2
Explanation:
23 can be shuffled as {23, 32}

Input: N = “0223”
Output: 12
Explanation:
0223 can be shuffled as {2230, 2203, 2023, 3220, 3202, 3022, 2320, 2302, 2032, 0232, 0322, 0223 }

 

Naive Approach: The naive idea is to find all the permutations of the given number and print the count of unique numbers generated. But since the given number N is very large, it cannot be used.



Time Complexity: O(N * N!)
Auxiliary Space: O(1)

Efficient Approach: To optimize the above approach, the idea is to use the concept of Permutation and Combination and Fermat’s little theorem. Below are the steps:

  1. Use Fermat’s Little Theorem to find Modulo Multiplicative Inverse under modulo M where M is 109+7.
  2. Instead of finding all the permutations, the result will be factorial of the length of given number N divided by the product of factorial of the count of a number as:

    count = \frac{K!}{C[i]!}

    where, 
    K is the number of digits in N
    C[i] is the count of digits(from 0 to 9) in N.

  3. Create an array of in which at each index store the factorial of that index.
  4. In order to store the count of each digit, create an array of size 10 and initialize it with 0.
  5. Initialize a variable answer with a value factorial of the length of N. For each count of a digit, find it’s a modular multiplicative inverse under modulo m and multiple with the result as:

    Since the count is 

    count = \frac{K!}{\sum_{i = 0}^{9}{C[i]!}}

    According to fermat little theorm: 

    x^{-1} mod M = x^{M - 2} mod M

    Therefore the count is given by: 

    count = ((K!)* ( \sum_{i = 0}^{9}(factorial[i]^{m - 2})mod M) mod M)

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

C++

#include <bits/stdc++.h>

#define ll long long int
  
// Recursive function to return the value
// of (x ^ n) % m

{
    // Base Case
    if (n == 0) {
        return 1;
    }
  
    // If N is even
    else if (n % 2 == 0) {
        return modexp((x * x) % m,
                      n / 2, m);
    }
  
    // Else N is odd
    else {
        return (x * modexp((x * x) % m,
                           (n - 1) / 2, m)
                % m);
    }
}
  
// Function to find modular inverse
// of a number x under modulo m
ll modInverse(ll x, ll m)
{
    // Using Fermat's little theorem
    return modexp(x, m - 2, m);
}
  
// Function to count of numbers formed by
// shuffling the digits of a large number N

{
    // Modulo value

    // Array to store the factorials
    // upto the maximum value of N
    ll factorial[100001];
  
    // Store factorial of i at index i
    factorial[0] = 1;
    for (ll i = 1; i < 100001; i++) {
  
        factorial[i] = (factorial[i - 1] * i) % m;
    }
  
    // To store count of occurrence
    // of a digit
    ll count[10];
  
    for (ll i = 0; i < 10; i++) {
        count[i] = 0;
    }
  
    ll length = N.length();
  
    for (ll i = 0; i < length; i++)
  
        // Increment the count of
        // digit occured
        count[N[i] - '0']++;
  
    // Assign the factorial of
    // length of input
    ll result = factorial[length];
  
    // Multiplying result with the
    // modulo multiplicative inverse of
    // factorial of count of i
    for (ll i = 0; i < 10; i++) {
  
        result = (result
                  * modInverse(factorial[count[i]], m))
                 % m;
    }
  
    // Print the result

Time Complexity: O(K + log(M)). O(K) is used to calculate the factorial of the number N and according to Fermat’s Little Theorem, it takes O(log(M)) to calculate the modulo multiplicative inverse of any number x under modulo m.
Auxiliary Space: O(log10N), where N is the given number N.
