# Count of substrings of a given Binary string with all characters same

Given binary string **str** containing only **0** and **1**, the task is to find the number of sub-strings containing only **1s** and **0s** respectively, i.e all characters same.

**Examples:**

Input:str = “011”Output:4Explanation:

Three sub-strings are “1“, “1”, “11” which have only 1 in them, and one substring is there which contains only “0”.

Input:str = “0000”Output:10Explanation:

There are no sub-strings having all ones in it.

**Naive Approach:** The idea is to generate all possible sub-string of the given string. For each sub-string check if the string contains all 1’s or all 0’s. If yes then count that sub-string. Print the count of sub-string after the above operations.

*Time Complexity: O(N ^{3})*

*Auxiliary Space: O(N)*

**Efficient Approach: **The idea is to use the concept of Sliding window and Two pointers Approach. Below are the steps to find the count of the substring that contains only **1s**:

- Initialize two pointers say
and**L**and initialize them to**R****0**. - Now iterate in the given string and check if the current character is equal to 1 or not. If it is, then extend the window by incrementing the value of
**R**. - If the current character is
**0**, then the window**L to R – 1**contains all ones. - Add the number of sub-strings of
**L to R – 1**to the answer that is**((R – L) * (R – L + 1)) / 2**and increment**R**and reinitialize**L as R**. - Repeat the process until
**L and R**cross each other. - Print the count of all the substring in
**step 4**. - To count the number of substring with all
**0s**flip the given string i.e., all**0s**will be converted into**1s**and vice-versa. - Repeat the above steps from
**step 1 to step 4**for character**1**in the**flipped string**to get a count of the substring that contains only**0s**in it and print the count.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
