Count of N-digit numbers having digit XOR as single digit

  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 26 Apr, 2021
Geek Week

Given an integer N, the task is to find the total count of N-Digit numbers such that the Bitwise XOR of the digits of the numbers is a single digit.

Examples:

Input: N = 1
Output: 9
Explanation: 
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 are the numbers.

Input: N = 2
Output: 66
Explanation: 
There are 66 such 2-digit numbers whose Xor of digits is a single digit number.

Approach: The naive approach will be to iterate over all the N-digit numbers and check if the Bitwise XOR of all the digits of the number is a single digit. If yes then include this in the count, otherwise, check for the next number.



Below is the implementation of the above approach:

C++




// C++ program for the above approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to find count of N-digit
// numbers with single digit XOR
void countNums(int N)
{
     
    // Range of numbers
    int l = (int)pow(10, N - 1);
    int r = (int)pow(10, N) - 1;
 
    int count = 0;
    for(int i = l; i <= r; i++)
    {
        int xorr = 0, temp = i;
 
        // Calculate XOR of digits
        while (temp > 0)
        {
            xorr = xorr ^ (temp % 10);
            temp /= 10;
        }
 
        // If XOR <= 9,
        // then increment count
        if (xorr <= 9)
            count++;
    }
     
    // Print the count
    cout << count;
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
     
    // Given number
    int N = 2;
 
    // Function call
    countNums(N);
}

Java




// Java program for the above approach
 
class GFG {
 
    // Function to find count of N-digit
    // numbers with single digit XOR

    {
        // Range of numbers
        int l = (int)Math.pow(10, N - 1),
            r = (int)Math.pow(10, N) - 1;
 
        int count = 0;
 
        for (int i = l; i <= r; i++) {
            int xor = 0, temp = i;
 
            // Calculate XOR of digits
            while (temp > 0) {
                xor = xor ^ (temp % 10);
                temp /= 10;
            }
 
            // If XOR <= 9,
            // then increment count
            if (xor <= 9)
                count++;
        }
 
        // Print the count
        System.out.println(count);
    }
 
    // Driver Code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Given Number
        int N = 2;
 
        // Function Call
        countNums(N);
    }

Time Complexity: O(N*10N)
Auxiliary Space: O(1)

Efficient Approach: The idea is to use Dynamic Programming. Observe that the maximum Bitwise XOR that can be obtained is 15.

  1. Create a table dp[][], where dp[i][j] stores the count of i-digit numbers such that their XOR is j.
  2. Initialize the dp[][] for i = 1 and for each i form 2 to N iterate for every digit j from 0 to 9.
  3. For every possible previous XOR k from 0 to 15, find the value by doing XOR of previous XOR k and the digit j, and increment the count of dp[i][value] by dp[i – 1][k].
  4. The total count of N-digit numbers with a single-digit XOR can be found by summing the dp[N][j] where j ranges from 0 to 9.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

C++




// C++ program for
// the above approach
#include<bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to find
// count of N-digit
// numbers with single
// digit XOR
void countNums(int N)
  // dp[i][j] stores the number
  // of i-digit numbers with
  // XOR equal to j
  int dp[N][16];
  memset(dp, 0,
         sizeof(dp[0][0]) *
                N * 16);
 
  // For 1-9 store the value
  for (int i = 1; i <= 9; i++)
    dp[0][i] = 1;
 
  // Iterate till N
  for (int i = 1; i < N; i++)
  {
    for (int j = 0; j < 10; j++)
    {
      for (int k = 0; k < 16; k++)
      {
        // Calculate XOR
        int xo = j ^ k;
 
        // Store in DP table
        dp[i][xo] += dp[i - 1][k];
      }
    }
  }
 
  // Initialize count
  int count = 0;
  for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
    count += dp[N - 1][i];
 
  // Print the answer
  cout << (count) << endl;
}
  
// Driver Code

{
  // Given number N
  int N = 1;
 
  // Function Call
  countNums(N);
