Largest even digit number not greater than N
  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2021

Given a number N, we need to write a program to find the largest number not greater than N which has all digits even. 
Examples: 
 

Input: N = 23
Output: 22 
Explanation: 22 is the largest number not 
greater then N which has all digits even. 

Input: N = 236
Output: 228 
Explanation: 228 is the largest number not 
greater than N which has all digits even. 

 

Naive Approach: A naive approach is to iterate from N to 0, and find the first number which has all of its digits even. 
Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 

C++




// CPP program to print the largest
// integer not greater than N with all even digits
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// function to check if all digits
// are even of a given number
int checkDigits(int n)
{
    // iterate for all digits
    while (n) {
        if ((n % 10) % 2) // if digit is odd
            return 0;
 
        n /= 10;
    }
 
    // all digits are even
    return 1;
}
 
// function to return the largest number
// with all digits even
int largestNumber(int n)
{
    // iterate till we find a
    // number with all digits even
    for (int i = n;; i--)
        if (checkDigits(i))
            return i;
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    int N = 23;   
    cout << largestNumber(N);
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java program to print the largest
// integer not greater than N with
// all even digits
import java .io.*;
 
public class GFG {
     
// function to check if all digits
// are even of a given number
static int checkDigits(int n)
{
     
    // iterate for all digits
    while (n > 0)
    {
         
        // if digit is odd
        if (((n % 10) % 2) > 0)
            return 0;
 
        n /= 10;
    }
 
    // all digits are even
    return 1;
}
 
// function to return the largest
// number with all digits even
static int largestNumber(int n)
{
     
    // iterate till we find a
    // number with all digits even
    for (int i = n;; i--)
        if (checkDigits(i) > 0)
            return i;
}
 
    // Driver Code
    static public void main (String[] args)
    {
        int N = 23;
        System.out.println(largestNumber(N));
    }
}

Time Complexity: O(N) 
Efficient Approach: We can obtain the required number by decreasing the first odd digit in N by one and then replacing all digits to the right of that odd digit with the largest even digit (i.e. 8). For example, if N = 24578, then X = 24488. In some cases, this approach can create a leading 0, we can simply drop the leading 0 in that case. For example, if N = 1334 then X = 0888. So, our answer will be X = 888. If there are no odd digits in N, then N is the number itself. 
Below is the implementation of the above approach:

// integer not greater than N with all even digits

        n /= 10;
    }
 
    int index = -1;
 
    // find first odd digit
    for (int i = 0; i < s.length(); i++) {
        if ((s[i] - '0') % 2 & 1) {
            index = i;
            break;
        }
    }
 
    // if no digit, then N is the answer
    if (index == -1)
        return duplicate;
 
    int num = 0;
 
    // till first odd digit, add all even numbers
    for (int i = 0; i < index; i++)
        num = num * 10 + (s[i] - '0');
 
    // decrease 1 from the odd digit
