Given a number N. Add one to the number in the first step and if the number has trailing zeros, remove all the trailing zeros in the second step. Continue the process for the next generated number. The task is to count the number of unique numbers that can be generated from these operations.
Input: N = 5
5 -> 6 -> 7 -> 8 -> 9 -> 1 -> 2 -> 3 -> 4 -> 5 (same sequence repeats)
Note that 10 is not included as it contained trailing zero
and removing the zero gave 1 as the next element.
Input: N = 28
Approach: The problem can be solved using recursion. Use a unordered_set to store all the unique numbers. In case a number is reached twice, we end the recursion as the same sequence will be repeated and we will not be getting any more unique numbers. Else insert the number to the set and in the first step increase the number by 1 and remove all trailing zeros in the next step if there are any.
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
