Program to convert a given number to words | Set 2
Write code to convert a given number into words.
Input: 438237764 Output: forty three crore eighty two lakh thirty seven thousand seven hundred and sixty four Input: 999999 Output: nine lakh ninety nine thousand nine hundred and ninety nine Input: 1000 Output: one thousand Explanation:1000 in words is "one thousand"
We have already discussed an approach that handles numbers from 0 to 9999 in the previous post.
Solution: This approach can handle number till 20-digits long which are less than ULLONG_MAX (Maximum value for an object of type unsigned long long int). ULLONG_MAX is equal to 18446744073709551615 in decimal assuming compiler takes 8 bytes for storage of unsigned long long int.
Below representation shows place value chart for any 9 digits positive integer:
4 3 8 2 3 7 7 6 4 | | | | | | | | |__ ones' place | | | | | | | |__ __ tens' place | | | | | | |__ __ __ hundreds' place | | | | | |__ __ __ __ thousands' place | | | | |__ __ __ __ __ tens thousands' place | | | |__ __ __ __ __ __ hundred thousands' place | | |__ __ __ __ __ __ __ one millions' place | |__ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ ten millions' place |__ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ hundred millions' place
The idea is to divide the number into individual digits based on the above place value chart and handle them starting from the Most Significant Digit. Here’s a simple implementation that supports numbers having a maximum of 9 digits. The program can be easily extended to support any 20-digit number.
forty three crore eighty two lakh thirty seven thousand seven hundred and sixty four
- Time complexity: O(1).
The loop runs for a constant amount of time.
- Auxiliary space: O(1).
As no extra space is required.
