Sum of the alphabetical values of the characters of a string

You are given an array of strings str, the task is to find the score of a given string s from the array. The score of a string is defined as the product of the sum of its characters’s alphabetical values with the position of the string in the array.

Examples:

Input: str[] = {“sahil”, “shashanak”, “sanjit”, “abhinav”, “mohit”}, s = “abhinav”
Output: 228
Sum of alphabetical values of “abhinav” = 1 + 2 + 8 + 9 + 14 + 1 + 22 = 57
Position of “abhinav” in str is 4, 57 x 4 = 228



Input: str[] = {“geeksforgeeks”, “algorithms”, “stack”}, s = “algorithms”
Output: 244

Approach:

  • Find the given string in the array and store the position of the string.
  • Then calculate the sum of the alphabetical values of the given string.
  • Multiply the position of the string in the given array with the value calculated in the previous step and print the result.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
        if (str[i] == s) {
            for (int j = 0; j < s.length(); j++)
                score += s[j] - 'a' + 1;
            index = i + 1;
            break;
        }
    }
  
    score = score * index;
    return score;
}
  
// Driver code
int main()
{
    string str[] = { "sahil", "shashanak"
                      , "sanjit", "abhinav", "mohit" };
    string s = "abhinav";
    int n = sizeof(str) / sizeof(str[0]);
    int score = strScore(str, s, n);
    cout << score << endl;
  
    return 0;
