A neon number is a number where the sum of digits of the square of the number is equal to the number. The task is to check and print neon numbers in a range.


Case 1:

Input  : 9
Output : Given number  9 is Neon number

Explanation : square of 9=9*9=81;
              sum of digit of square : 8+1=9(which is equal to given number)

Case 2:

Input : 8
Output : Given number is not a Neon number
Explanation : square of 8=8*8=64
              sum of digit of square : 6+4=10(which is not equal to given number)

Algorithm :

  1. First, find the square of the given number.
  2. Find the sum of the digit of the square by using a loop.
  3. The condition checksum is equal to the given number
    1. Return true
    2. Else return false.
Pseudo code : Square =n*n;
              int r=square%10;



// Java Program to Check If a Number is Neon number or not
// Importing java input/output library
class GFG {
    // Method to check whether number is neon or not
    // Boolean type
    public static boolean checkNeon(int n)
        // squaring the number to be checked
        int square = n * n;
        // Initializing current sum to 0
        int sum = 0;
        // If product is positive
        while (square > 0) {
            // Step 1: Find remainder
            int r = square % 10;
            // Add remainder to the current sum
            sum += r;
            // Drop last digit of the product
            // and store the number
            square = square / 10;
        // Condition check
        // Sum of digits of number obtained is
        // equal to original number
        if (sum == n)
            // number is neon
            return true;
            // number is not neon
            return false;
    // Main driver method
    public static void main(String[] args)
        // Custom input
        int n = 9;
        // Calling above function to check custom number or
        // if user entered number via Scanner class
        if (checkNeon(n))
            // Print number considered is neon
            System.out.println("Given number " + n
                               + " is Neon number");
            // Print number considered is not neon
            System.out.println("Given number " + n
                               + " is not a Neon number");
Given number 9 is Neon number

Time Complexity: O(l) where l is the number of the digit in the square of the given number
