How to find the largest number with given digit sum s and number of digits d?
Input : s = 9, d = 2 Output : 90 Input : s = 20, d = 3 Output : 992
A Simple Solution is to consider all m digit numbers and keep track of maximum number with digit sum as s. A close upper bound on time complexity of this solution is O(10m).
There is a Greedy approach to solve the problem. The idea is to one by one fill all digits from leftmost to rightmost (or from most significant digit to least significant).
We compare the remaining sum with 9 if the remaining sum is more than 9, we put 9 at the current position, else we put the remaining sum. Since we fill digits from left to right, we put the highest digits on the left side, hence get the largest number.
Below image is an illustration of the above approach:
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
Largest number is 90
Time Complexity of this solution is O(m).
