Given a positive integer **N**, the task is to find the smallest positive number made up of distinct digits having sum of its digits equal to **N**. If no such number exists, print **“-1”**.

**Examples:**

Input:N = 11Output:29Explanation:The sum of the digits = 2 + 9 = 11 ( = N).

Input:N = 46Output:-1

**Approach:** The idea is based on the following observations:

**If N < 10:**Required answer is**N**itself.**If N > 45:**Required answer is**-1**as the smallest number that can be made using non-repeating digits is 123456789, whose sum of digits is 45.**Otherwise:**The answer can be obtained based on the following pattern.

Consider the following examples, to understand the pattern,

For N = 10: The output is 19.

For N = 11: The output is 29.

For N = 12: The output is 39.

For N = 13: The output is 49.

…

For N = 21: The output is 489.

For N = 22: The output is 589.

For N = 23: The output is 689.On observing the above results, it is clear that the answer contains digits in decreasing order having a difference of 1 starting from one’s digit until the digit sum is less than N.

Follow the steps below to solve the problem:

- If the given number is less than 10, then print the number itself.
- If the given number is greater than 45, then print
**“-1”**. - Otherwise, perform the following steps:
- Initialize a string
**res**to store the required answer and initialize a variable, say**digit**, as**9**. - Iterate a loop until
**N ≤ digit**and perform the following steps:- Push
**digit**at the starting of**res**. - Decrement
**N**by**digit**. - Decrement
**digit**by**1**.

- Push
- If the value of
**N**is found to be greater than**0**, then push the character at the starting of**res**. - After completing the above steps, print the value of
**res**as the answer.

- Initialize a string

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
