# Count ‘d’ digit positive integers with 0 as a digit

Given a number **d**, representing the number of digits of a positive integer. Find the total count of positive integer (consisting of d digits exactly) which have at-least one zero in them.

Examples:

Input : d = 1 Output : 0 There's no natural number of 1 digit that contains a zero. Input : d = 2 Output : 9 The numbers are, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80 and 90.

## We strongly recommend that you click here and practice it, before moving on to the solution.

One Simple Solution is to traverse through all d digit positive numbers. For every number, traverse through its digits and if there is any 0 digit, increment count (similar to this).

Following are some observations:

- There are exactly d digits.
- The number at most significant place can’t be a zero (no leading zeroes allowed).
- All the other places except the most significant one can contain zero .

So considering the above points, let’s find the total count of numbers having d digits:

We can place any of {1, 2, ... 9} in D1 Hence D1 can be filled in 9 ways. Apart from D1 all the other places can be 10 ways. (we can place 0 as well) Hence the total numbers having d digits can be given as:Total = 9*10Now, let's find the numbers having d digits, that don't contain zero at any place. In this case, all the places can be filled in 9 ways. Hence count of such numbers is given by:^{d-1}Non_Zero = 9Now the count of numbers having at least one zero can be obtained by subtracting Non_Zero from Total. Hence Answer would be given by:^{d}9*(10^{d-1 - 9d-1)}

Below is the program for the same.
