Count of N-digit numbers having digit XOR as single digit
  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 23 Oct, 2020

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:

    // 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;

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.
