Count of N digit palindromic numbers divisible by 9

  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 05 May, 2021

Given an integer N, the task is to count the number of N digit palindromic numbers containing digits from 1 to 9 and divisible by 9. 
Examples: 
 

Input: N = 1 
Output:
Explanation: 
Only 9 is 1 digit number which is palindrome and divisible by 9.
Input: N = 3 
Output:
Explanation: 
Three digit numbers those are palindrome and divisible by 9 are – 
{171, 252, 333, 414, 585, 666, 747, 828, 999} 
 

 

Approach: The key observation in the problem is if the number is divisible by 9 then sum of digits of the number is also divisible by 9. Therefore, the problem can be segreated on the basis of its parity.
 

  • If N is odd: We can put any number from 1 to 9 in position 1 to (N-1)/2, Similarly, the other digits are chosen in reverse order to form palindromic number and the middle element is chosen on to form the sum of digits divisible by 9. Therefore, there are 9 choices for each position of (N-1)/2 digits of the number due to which the count of such number will be: 
     
Count of N-digit Palindromic numbers =
                 9(N-1)/2
  • If N is even: We can put any number from 1 to 9 at the position from 1 to (N-2)/2, Similarly, the other digits are chosen in reverse order to form palindromic number and the middle element is chosen on to form the sum of digits divisible by 9. Therefore, there are 9 choices for each position of (N-2)/2 digits of the number due to which the count of such number will be: 
     
Count of N-digit Palindromic numbers =
                 9(N-2)/2
