Divide number into two parts divisible by given numbers

  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 09 Nov, 2021

Given a large number in string format and we are also given two numbers f and s. We need to divide the large number into two continuous parts such that the first part is divisible by f and the second part is divisible by s. 
Examples: 
 

Input: num = “246904096”
          f = 12345        
          s = 1024
Output: Yes
We can divide num into “24680” and “4096” 
which are divisible by f and s respectively.

Input : num = “1234”
          f = 1            
          s = 123
Output : No
We can not divide num into two parts under 
given constraint.

A simple solution is to generate all divisions of a given number and check if a division is divisible. 
We can solve this problem by storing remainders of each prefix and suffix of the given string and if at any index, prefix reminder and suffix reminder both are zero, then we know that we can break the string at this index. The procedure is explained for the above example, 
 

String = “246904096”
All prefix reminders with 12345 are,

Prefix 2     reminder with 12345, 2
prefix 24      reminder with 12345, 24
prefix 246       reminder with 12345, 246
prefix 2469       reminder with 12345, 2469
prefix 24690       reminder with 12345, 0
prefix 246904       reminder with 12345, 4
prefix 2469040   reminder with 12345, 40
prefix 24690409  reminder with 12345, 409
prefix 246904096 reminder with 12345, 4096

All suffix reminder with 1024 are, 
Suffix 6     reminder with 1024, 6
Suffix 96     reminder with 1024, 96
Suffix 096     reminder with 1024, 96
Suffix 4096     reminder with 1024, 0
Suffix 04096     reminder with 1024, 0
Suffix 904096     reminder with 1024, 928
Suffix 6904096     reminder with 1024, 288
Suffix 46904096     reminder with 1024, 800
Suffix 246904096 reminder with 1024, 288
Now we can see that at index 5 both reminders
are 0, so the string can be broken into 24680
and 4096.

We can get (i)th suffix reminder by (i – 1)th suffix reminder as, (sr[i] = sr[i – 1] * 10 + s[i]) % f, i.e. just multiply previous reminder by 10 and add current digit and then take reminder by f. 
For getting (i)th prefix reminder by (i + 1)th prefix reminder, we can do, (pr[i] = pr[i + 1] + s[i] * base) % s, i.e. add next reminder and current digit multiplied with base value which will be 1 for last digit, 10 for second last digit and so on and then we will take reminder by s overall.
Total time complexity of solution will O(N)
