Given a number N, the task is to find the sum of all N-digit palindromic numbers which are divisible by 9 and the number doesn’t contain 0 in it.
Note: The sum can be very large, take modulo with 109+7.

Example:

Input: N = 2
Output: 99
Explanation:
There is only one 2-digit palindromic number divisible by 9 is 99.

Input: N = 3
Output: 4995

Naive Approach: The idea is to iterate over all the N-digit numbers and check whether the numbers are palindromic and divisible by 9 and doesn’t contain zero in it. If yes then the summation of all the numbers given the required result.
Efficient Approach: Below are the some observation for this problem statement:

1. If N is odd, then the number can be of the form “ab..x..ba” and if N is even then the number can be “ab..xx..ba”, where ‘a’, ‘b’ and ‘x’ can be replaced by digit from 1 to 9.
2. If number “ab..x..ba” divisible by 9, (2*(a+b) + x) must be divisible by 9.
3. For every possible pair of (a, b) there always exist one such ‘x’ so that the number is divisible by 9.
4. Then the count of N-digit palindromic numbers which are divisible by 9 can be calculated from below formula:
```Since we have 9 digits to fill at the position a and b.
Therefore, total possible combinations will be:
if N is Odd then, count = pow(9, N/2)
if N is Even then, count = pow(9, N/2 - 1)
as N/2 digits are repeated at the end to get the
number palindromic.```

Proof of Uniqueness of ‘x’:

• Minimum value of a and b is 1, therefore minimum sum = 2.
• Maximum value of a and b is 9, therefore minimum sum = 18.
• As the numbers are palindromic, then the sum is given by:
`sum = 2*(a+b) + x;`
• 2*(a+b) will be of the form 2, 4, 6, 8, …, 36. To make sum divisible by 9 the value of x can be:

```sum    one of the possible value of x    sum + x
2                   7                      9
4                   5                      9
6                   3                      9
8                   1                      9
.                   .                      .
.                   .                      .
.                   .                      .
36                  9                      45```

Below are the steps:

• After the above observations, the sum of the digit of all N-digit palindromic number which is divisible by 9 at any kth position is given by:
`sum at kth position = 45*(number of combinations)/9`
• Iterate a loop over [1, N] and find the number of possible combination to placed a digit at current index.
• Find the sum of all the digits at current digit using the above mentioned formula.
• The summation of all the sum calculated at each iteration given the required result.
