We are given an integer N. We need to write a program to find the least positive integer X made up of only digits 9’s and 0’s, such that, X is a multiple of N.

Note: It is assumed that the value of X will not exceed 106.

Examples:

```Input : N = 5
Output : X = 90
Explanation: 90 is the smallest number made up
of 9's and 0's which is divisible by 5.

Input : N = 7
Output : X = 9009
Explanation: 9009 is smallest number made up
of 9's and 0's which is divisible by 7.```

The idea to solve this problem is to generate and store all of the numbers which can be formed using digits 0 & 9. Then find the smallest number among these generated number which is divisible by N.
We will use the method of generating binary numbers to generate all numbers which can be formed by using digits 0 & 9.

Below is the implementation of above idea:

## C++

 `// CPP program to find smallest multiple of a``// given number made of digits 0 and 9 only``#include ``using` `namespace` `std;` `// Maximum number of numbers made of 0 and 9``#define MAX_COUNT 10000` `// vector to store all numbers that can be formed``// using digits 0 and 9 and are less than 10^5``vector vec;` `/* Preprocessing function to generate all possible``   ``numbers formed by 0 and 9 */``void` `generateNumbersUtil()``{  ``    ``// Create an empty queue of strings``    ``queue q;``        ` `    ``// enqueue the first number``    ``q.push(``"9"``);``    ` `    ``// This loops is like BFS of a tree with 9 as root``    ``// 0 as left child and 9 as right child and so on``    ``for` `(``int` `count = MAX_COUNT; count > 0; count--)``    ``{``        ``string s1 = q.front();``        ``q.pop();``        ` `        ``// storing the front of queue in the vector``        ``vec.push_back(s1);``        ` `        ``string s2 = s1;``        ` `        ``// Append "0" to s1 and enqueue it``        ``q.push(s1.append(``"0"``));``        ` `        ``// Append "9" to s2 and enqueue it. Note that``        ``// s2 contains the previous front``        ``q.push(s2.append(``"9"``));``    ``}``}` `// function to find smallest number made up of only``// digits 9’s and 0’s, which is a multiple of n.``string findSmallestMultiple(``int` `n)``{  ``    ``// traverse the vector to find the smallest``    ``// multiple of n``    ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < vec.size(); i++)` `        ``// stoi() is used for string to int conversion``        ``if` `(stoi(vec[i])%n == 0)``            ``return` `vec[i];       ``}` `// Driver Code``int` `main()``{``    ``generateNumbersUtil();   ``    ``int` `n = 7;   ``    ``cout << findSmallestMultiple(n);   ``    ``return` `0;``}`

Output

`9009`

Time Complexity: O(n), where n represents the given integer.
Auxiliary Space: O(10000), no extra space is required, so it is a constant.
