Numbers whose factorials end with n zeros

  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2021

Given an integer n, we need to find the number of positive integers whose factorial ends with n zeros.
Examples: 
 

Input : n = 1
Output : 5 6 7 8 9
Explanation: Here, 5! = 120, 6! = 720,
7! = 5040, 8! = 40320 and 9! = 362880.

Input : n = 2
Output : 10 11 12 13 14 
          

 

Prerequisite : Trailing zeros in factorial.
Naive approach:We can just iterate through the range of integers and find the number of trailing zeros of all the numbers and print the numbers with n trailing zeros.
Efficient Approach:In this approach we use binary search. Use binary search for all the numbers in the range and get the first number with n trailing zeros. Find all the numbers with m trailing zeros after that number.
 

C++

// Binary search based CPP program to find
// numbers with n trailing zeros.
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;

// Function to calculate trailing zeros
int trailingZeroes(int n)
{
    int cnt = 0;
    while (n > 0) {
        n /= 5;
        cnt += n;
    }
    return cnt;
}

void binarySearch(int n)
{
    int low = 0;
    int high = 1e6; // range of numbers

    // binary search for first number with 
    // n trailing zeros
    while (low < high) {
        int mid = (low + high) / 2;
        int count = trailingZeroes(mid);
        if (count < n)
            low = mid + 1;
        else
            high = mid;
    }

    // Print all numbers after low with n
    // trailing zeros.
    vector<int> result;
    while (trailingZeroes(low) == n) {
        result.push_back(low);
        low++;
    }

    // Print result
    for (int i = 0; i < result.size(); i++) 
        cout << result[i] << " ";

    return 0;
