Numbers having Unique (or Distinct) digits
  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 01 Mar, 2021

Given a range, print all numbers having unique digits. 
Examples : 

Input : 10 20
Output : 10 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20  (Except 11)

Input : 1 10
Output : 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Approach:

As the problem is pretty simple, the only thing to be done is :-
1- Find the digits one by one and keep marking visited digits.
2- If all digits occurs one time only then print that number.
3- Else not.

C++




// C++ implementation to find unique digit
// numbers in a range
#include<bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to print unique digit numbers
// in range from l to r.
void printUnique(int l, int r)
{
    // Start traversing the numbers
    for (int i=l ; i<=r ; i++)
    {
        int num = i;
        bool visited[10] = {false};
 
        // Find digits and maintain its hash
        while (num)
        {
            // if a digit occurs more than 1 time
            // then break
            if (visited[num % 10])
                break;
 
            visited[num%10] = true;
 
            num = num/10;
        }
 
        // num will be 0 only when above loop
        // doesn't get break that means the
        // number is unique so print it.
        if (num == 0)
            cout << i << " ";
    }
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int l = 1, r = 20;
    printUnique(l, r);
    return 0;
}

    {
        // Start traversing the numbers
        for (int i=l ; i<=r ; i++)
        {
            int num = i;
            boolean visited[] = new boolean[10];
      
            // Find digits and maintain its hash
            while (num != 0)
            {
                // if a digit occurs more than 1 time
                // then break
                if (visited[num % 10])
                    break;
      
                visited[num%10] = true;
      
                num = num/10;
            }
      
            // num will be 0 only when above loop
            // doesn't get break that means the
            // number is unique so print it.
            if (num == 0)
                System.out.print(i + " ");
        }
    }
     
    // Driver method
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        int l = 1, r = 20;
        printUnique(l, r);
    }
}

Output :

Another Approach:

Use set STL in order to check if a number has only unique digits. Then we can compare the size of string s formed from a given number and newly created set. For example, let us consider the number 1987, then we can convert the number into the string,



C++




int n;
cin>>n;
string s = to_string(n);


After that, initialize a set with the contents of string s.

C++




set<int> uniDigits(s.begin(), s.end());


Then we can compare the size of string s and newly created set uniDigits.

Here is the code for the above approach:

C++




// CPP code for the above approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to print unique
// numbers
void printUnique(int l, int r){
   
  // Iterate from l to r
  for (int i = l; i <= r; i++) {
       
        // Convert the no. to
        // string
        string s = to_string(i);
       
        // Convert string to set using stl
        set<int> uniDigits(s.begin(), s.end());
       
        // Output if condition satisfies
        if (s.size() == uniDigits.size()) {
            cout << i << " ";
        }
    }
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
   
    // Input of the lower and
    // higher limits
    int l = 1, r = 20;
     
    // Function Call
    printUnique(l, r);
    return 0;
}


Output

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
