Given a positive integers N, the task is to find the smallest N digit number divisible by N.

Examples:  

Input: N = 2 
Output: 10 
Explanation: 
10 is the smallest 2-digit number which is divisible by 2.

Input: N = 3 
Output: 102 
Explanation: 
102 is the smallest 3-digit number which is divisible by 3. 


Naive Approach: The naive approach is to iterate from smallest N-digit number(say S) to largest N-digit number(say L). The first number between [S, L] divisible by N is the required result.

Below is the implementation of above approach: 

C++

// C++ program for the above approach
#include <iostream>
#include <math.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to find the smallest
// N-digit number divisible by N
void smallestNumber(int N)
{
    // Find largest n digit number
    int L = pow(10, N) - 1;
 
    // Find smallest n digit number
    int S = pow(10, N - 1);
 
    for (int i = S; i <= L; i++) {
 
        // If i is divisible by N,
        // then print i and return ;
        if (i % N == 0) {
 
            cout << i;
            return;
        }
    }
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    // Given Number
    int N = 2;
 
    // Function Call
    smallestNumber(N);
    return 0;
}

                    

Java

// Java program for the above approach
import java.util.*;
class GFG{
 
// Function to find the smallest
// N-digit number divisible by N
static void smallestNumber(int N)
{
 
    // Find largest n digit number
    int L = (int) (Math.pow(10, N) - 1);
 
    // Find smallest n digit number
    int S = (int) Math.pow(10, N - 1);
 
    for (int i = S; i <= L; i++)
    {
 
        // If i is divisible by N,
        // then print i and return ;
        if (i % N == 0)
        {
            System.out.print(i);
            return;
        }
    }
}
 
// Driver Code
public static void main(String[] args)
{
    // Given Number
    int N = 2;
 
    // Function Call
    smallestNumber(N);
}
}

Output: 
10

 

Time Complexity: O(L – S), where L and S is the largest and smallest N-digit number respectively. 

Auxiliary Space: O(1)

Efficient Approach: If the number divisible by N, then the number will be of the form N * X for some positive integer X
Since it has to be smallest N-digit number, then X will be given by: 

\lceil \frac{10^{N-1}}{N} \rceil       . Therefore, the smallest number N-digit number is given by: 

N*\lceil \frac{10^{N-1}}{N} \rceil


For Example:  

For N = 3, the smallest 3-digit number is given by: 
=> 3*\lceil \frac{10^{3-1}}{3} \rceil

=> 3*\lceil \frac{100}{3} \rceil

=> 3*\lceil 33.3 \rceil

=> 102
