Find nth Magic Number

  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 20 Aug, 2021

A magic number is defined as a number which can be expressed as a power of 5 or sum of unique powers of 5. First few magic numbers are 5, 25, 30(5 + 25), 125, 130(125 + 5), ….
Write a function to find the nth Magic number.
Example: 

Input: n = 2
Output: 25

Input: n = 5
Output: 130 

 

If we notice carefully the magic numbers can be represented as 001, 010, 011, 100, 101, 110 etc, where 001 is 0*pow(5,3) + 0*pow(5,2) + 1*pow(5,1). So basically we need to add powers of 5 for each bit set in given integer n. 
Below is the implementation based on this idea. 
 

C++

// C++ program to find nth magic number
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;

// Function to find nth magic number
int nthMagicNo(int n)
{
    int pow = 1, answer = 0;

    // Go through every bit of n
    while (n)
    {
       pow = pow*5;

       // If last bit of n is set
       if (n & 1)
         answer += pow;

       // proceed to next bit
       n >>= 1;  // or n = n/2
    }
    return answer;
}

// Driver program to test above function
int main()
{
    int n = 5;
    cout << "nth magic number is " << nthMagicNo(n) << endl;
    return 0;
}

Java

// Java program to find nth
// magic number
import java.io.*;

class GFG 
{
  // Function to find nth magic number
  static int nthMagicNo(int n)
  {
     int pow = 1, answer = 0;
 
     // Go through every bit of n
     while (n != 0)
     {
       pow = pow*5;
 
       // If last bit of n is set
       if ((int)(n & 1) == 1)
         answer += pow;
 
       // proceed to next bit
       // or n = n/2
       n >>= 1;  
     }
     return answer;
  }
 
  // Driver program to test
  // above function
  public static void main(String[] args)
  {
    int n = 5;
    System.out.println("nth magic" +
    " number is " + nthMagicNo(n));
  }
}

Python3

# Python program to find nth magic number

# Function to find nth magic number
def nthMagicNo(n):

    pow = 1
    answer = 0

    # Go through every bit of n
    while (n):

        pow = pow*5

        # If last bit of n is set
        if (n & 1):
            answer += pow

        # proceed to next bit
        n >>= 1 # or n = n/2
    
    return answer


# Driver program to test above function
n = 5
print("nth magic number is", nthMagicNo(n))

Javascript

<script>

    // Javascript program to find nth
    // magic number
    
    // Function to find nth magic number
    function nthMagicNo(n)
    {
        let pow = 1, answer = 0;

        // Go through every bit of n
        while (n != 0)
        {
            pow = pow * 5;

            // If last bit of n is set
            if ((n & 1) == 1)
                answer += pow;

            // proceed to next bit
            // or n = n/2
            n >>= 1; 
        }
        return answer;
    }
    
    let n = 5;
    document.write("nth magic" + " number is " + nthMagicNo(n));
    
</script>

Output : 

 nth magic number is 130
