Given a sentence in the form of a string, convert it into its equivalent mobile numeric keypad sequence. 
 

Mobile-keypad

Examples : 

Input: GEEKSFORGEEKS
Output: 4333355777733366677743333557777
Explanation: For obtaining a number, we need to press a number corresponding to that character for a number of times equal to the position of the character. For example, for character E, press number 3 two times and accordingly.

Input : HELLO WORLD
Output : 4433555555666096667775553

Approach: Follow the steps given below to convert a sentence into its equivalent mobile numeric keypad sequence. 

  • For each character, store the sequence which should be obtained at its respective position in an array, i.e. for Z, store 9999. For Y, store 999. For K, store 55 and so on.
  • For each character, subtract ASCII value of ‘A’ and obtain the position in the array pointed 
    by that character and add the sequence stored in that array to a string.
  • If the character is a space, store 0
  • Print the overall sequence.

Below is the implementation of above method : 

C++




// C++ implementation to convert a
// sentence into its equivalent
// mobile numeric keypad sequence
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function which computes the sequence
string printSequence(string arr[], string input)
{
    string output = "";
 
    // length of input string
    int n = input.length();
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
        // Checking for space
        if (input[i] == ' ')
            output = output + "0";
 
        else {
            // Calculating index for each
            // character
            int position = input[i] - 'A';
            output = output + arr[position];
        }
    }
 
    // Output sequence
    return output;
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    // storing the sequence in array
    string str[]
        = { "2",   "22""222", "3",   "33",   "333", "4",
            "44""444", "5",   "55""555""6",   "66",
            "666", "7",   "77""777", "7777", "8",   "88",
            "888", "9",   "99""999", "9999" };
 
    string input = "GEEKSFORGEEKS";
    cout << printSequence(str, input);
    return 0;
}

                output = output + "0";
 
            else {
                // Calculating index for each
                // character
                int position = input.charAt(i) - 'A';
                output = output + arr[position];
            }
