# Split numeric, alphabetic and special symbols from a String

Given a string str, divide the string into three parts one containing a numeric part, one containing alphabetic and one containing special characters.
Examples:

```Input : geeks01for02geeks03!!!
Output :geeksforgeeks
010203
!!!
Here str = "Geeks01for02Geeks03!!!", we scan every character and
append in res1, res2 and res3 string accordingly.

Input : **Docoding123456789everyday##
Output :Docodingeveryday
123456789
**##
```

## Recommended: Please solve it on “PRACTICE” first, before moving on to the solution.

Steps :

1. Calculate the length of the string.
2. Scan each every character(ch) of a string one by one
• if (ch is a digit) then append it in res1 string.
• else if (ch is alphabet) append in string res2.
• else append in string res3.
3. Print the all the strings, we will have one string containing numeric part, other non numeric part and last one contain special characters.

Output:

```geeksforgeeks

```

Time complexity of above solution is O(n) where n is the length of the string.
