Given an integer N, where . The task is to print the count of pieces of a circle with N cuts where each cut passes through the centre of given circle.**Examples**:

Input: N = 2Output: 4Input: N = 100Output: 200

**Approach:** This problem can be easily solved with observation only. Since each cut passes through the centre, each cut creates two new pieces.

Let us see how above Intuition works.

- At first cut we have 2 different pieces of circle.
- At second cut we have 2 new different pieces from previous 2 pieces of circle.
- At third cut we have again 2 new different pieces from any of previous 2 pieces which are opposite to each other.

In this way, we proceed with N cuts to get the count of total pieces after N cuts.

Below is the implementation of above approach:

## C++

`// C++ program to find number of pieces` `// of circle after N cuts` `#include <bits/stdc++.h>` `using` `namespace` `std;` `// Function to find number of pieces` `// of circle after N cuts` `int` `countPieces(` `int` `N)` `{` ` ` `return` `2 * N;` `}` `// Driver program` `int` `main()` `{` ` ` `int` `N = 100;` ` ` `cout << countPieces(N);` ` ` `return` `0;` `}` |

## Java

`// Java program to find number of pieces` `// of circle after N cuts` `import` `java.util.*;` `class` `solution` `{` `// Function to find number of pieces` `// of circle after N cuts` `static` `int` `countPieces(` `int` `N)` `{` ` ` `return` `2` `* N;` `}` `// Driver program` `public` `static` `void` `main(String args[])` `{` ` ` `int` `N = ` `100` `;` ` ` `System.out.println(countPieces(N));` `}` `}` |

## Python3

`# Python program to find number` `# of pieces of circle after N cuts` `# Function to find number of` `# pieces of circle after N cuts` `def` `countPieces(N):` ` ` `return` `2` `*` `N` `# Driver Code` `N ` `=` `100` `print` `(countPieces(N))` `# This code is contributed by` `# Sanjit_Prasad` |

## C#

`// C# program to find number of pieces` `// of circle after N cuts` `class` `solution` `{` `// Function to find number of pieces` `// of circle after N cuts` `static` `int` `countPieces(` `int` `N)` `{` ` ` `return` `2 * N;` `}` `// Driver program` `static` `void` `Main()` `{` ` ` `int` `N = 100;` ` ` `System.Console.WriteLine(countPieces(N));` `}` `}` `// This code is contributed by mits` |

## PHP

`<?php` `// PHP program to find number of` `// pieces of circle after N cuts` `// Function to find number of pieces` `// of circle after N cuts` `function` `countPieces(` `$N` `)` `{` ` ` `return` `2 * ` `$N` `;` `}` `// Driver Code` `$N` `= 100;` `echo` `countPieces(` `$N` `);` `// This code is contributed by anuj_67` `?>` |

## Javascript

`<script>` `// Javascript program to find number of pieces` `// of circle after N cuts` `// Function to find number of pieces` `// of circle after N cuts` `function` `countPieces(N)` `{` ` ` `return` `2 * N;` `}` `// driver program` ` ` ` ` `let N = 100;` ` ` `document.write(countPieces(N));` ` ` `</script>` |

**Output:**

200

**Time Complexity:** O(1)
