# Convert a sentence into its equivalent mobile numeric keypad sequence

• Difficulty Level : Easy
• Last Updated : 02 Aug, 2022

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

```Input : GEEKSFORGEEKS
Output : 4333355777733366677743333557777
For obtaining a number, we need to press a
number corresponding to that character for
number of times equal to position of the
character. For example, for character C,
we press number 2 three times and accordingly.

Input : HELLO WORLD
Output : 4433555555666096667775553```

Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

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 :
