Find the sum of digits of a number at even and odd places
• Difficulty Level : Easy
• Last Updated : 19 Mar, 2021

Given a number N, the task is to find the sum of digits of a number at even and odd places.
Examples:

Input: N = 54873
Output:
Sum odd = 16
Sum even = 11

Input: N = 457892
Output:
Sum odd = 20
Sum even = 15

Approach:

• First, calculate the reverse of the given number.
• To the reverse number we apply modulus operator and extract its last digit which is actually the first digit of a number so it is odd positioned digit.
• The next digit will be even positioned digit, and we can take the sum in alternating turns.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

 `// C++ implementation of the approach``#include ``using` `namespace` `std;` `// Function to return the reverse of a number``int` `reverse(``int` `n)``{``    ``int` `rev = 0;``    ``while` `(n != 0) {``        ``rev = (rev * 10) + (n % 10);``        ``n /= 10;``    ``}``    ``return` `rev;``}` `// Function to find the sum of the odd``// and even positioned digits in a number``void` `getSum(``int` `n)``{``    ``n = reverse(n);``    ``int` `sumOdd = 0, sumEven = 0, c = 1;` `    ``while` `(n != 0) {` `        ``// If c is even number then it means``        ``// digit extracted is at even place``        ``if` `(c % 2 == 0)``            ``sumEven += n % 10;``        ``else``            ``sumOdd += n % 10;``        ``n /= 10;``        ``c++;``    ``}` `    ``cout << ``"Sum odd = "` `<< sumOdd << ``"\n"``;``    ``cout << ``"Sum even = "` `<< sumEven;``}` `// Driver code``int` `main()``{``    ``int` `n = 457892;``    ``getSum(n);` `    ``return` `0;``}`

Sum even = 15```

Another approach: The problem can be solved without reversing the number. We can extract all the digits from the number one by one from the end. If the original number was odd then the last digit must be odd positioned else it will be even positioned. After processing a digit, we can invert the state from odd to even and vice versa.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

 `// C++ implementation of the approach``#include ``using` `namespace` `std;` `// Function to find the sum of the odd``// and even positioned digits in a number``void` `getSum(``int` `n)``{` `    ``// If n is odd then the last digit``    ``// will be odd positioned``    ``bool` `isOdd = (n % 2 == 1) ? ``true` `: ``false``;` `    ``// To store the respective sums``    ``int` `sumOdd = 0, sumEven = 0;` `    ``// While there are digits left process``    ``while` `(n != 0) {` `        ``// If current digit is odd positioned``        ``if` `(isOdd)``            ``sumOdd += n % 10;` `        ``// Even positioned digit``        ``else``            ``sumEven += n % 10;` `        ``// Invert state``        ``isOdd = !isOdd;` `        ``// Remove last digit``        ``n /= 10;``    ``}` `    ``cout << ``"Sum odd = "` `<< sumOdd << ``"\n"``;``    ``cout << ``"Sum even = "` `<< sumEven;``}` `// Driver code``int` `main()``{``    ``int` `n = 457892;``    ``getSum(n);` `    ``return` `0;``}`

Output:
```Sum odd = 20
Sum even = 15```

#### Method #3:Using string() method:

1. Convert the integer to string. Traverse the string and store all even indices sum in one variable and all odd indices sum in another variable.

Below is the implementation:

## Python3

 `# Python3 implementation of the approach` `# Function to find the sum of the odd``# and even positioned digits in a number``def` `getSum(n):` `    ``# To store the respective sums``    ``sumOdd ``=` `0``    ``sumEven ``=` `0``    ` `    ``# Converting integer to string``    ``num ``=` `str``(n)``    ` `    ``# Traversing the string``    ``for` `i ``in` `range``(``len``(num)):``        ``if``(i ``%` `2` `=``=` `0``):``            ``sumOdd ``=` `sumOdd``+``int``(num[i])``        ``else``:``            ``sumEven ``=` `sumEven``+``int``(num[i])` `    ``print``(``"Sum odd = "``, sumOdd)``    ``print``(``"Sum even = "``, sumEven)`  `# Driver code``if` `__name__ ``=``=` `"__main__"``:``    ``n ``=` `457892``    ``getSum(n)` `# This code is contributed by vikkycirus`

Output:

```Sum odd = 20
Sum even = 15```
