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

• Difficulty Level : Easy
• Last Updated : 19 Sep, 2022

Given a number d, representing the number of digits of a number. Find the total count of positive integers which have at-least one zero in them and consist d or less digits.

Examples:
Input : d = 1
Output : 0
There's no natural number of 1 digit that contains a zero.

Input : d = 2
Output : 9

Input : d = 3
Output : 180
For d = 3, we've to count numbers from 1 to 999, that have
atleast one zero in them.
Similarly for d=4, we'd check every number from 1 to 9999. 

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

This is mainly an extension of below post.
Count â€˜dâ€™ digit positive integers with 0 as a digit.
If we observe carefully the problem is very similar to the one which we had discussed in our first set. For a given d, we can get the required answer if we find numbers that have 0s and consist of digits 1, 2, 3….., d. Finally we can add them to get the output.
Below is the program for the same.

## C++

 // C++ program to find the count of positive integer of a // given number of digits that contain atleast one zero #include using namespace std;   // Returns count of 'd' digit integers have 0 as a digit int findCount(int d) {     return 9*(pow(10,d-1) - pow(9,d-1)); }   // utility function to count the required answer int findCountUpto(int d) {     // Count of numbers with digits smaller than     // or equal to d.     int totalCount = 0;     for (int i=1; i<=d; i++)         totalCount += findCount(i);       return totalCount; }   // Driver Code int main() {     int d = 1;     cout << findCountUpto(d) << endl;       d = 2;     cout << findCountUpto(d) << endl;       d = 4;     cout << findCountUpto(d) << endl;     return 0; }

## Java

 // Java program to find the count of  // positive integer of agiven number // of digits that contain atleast one zero import java.io.*; import java.math.*;   class GFG {           // Returns count of 'd' digit      // integers have 0 as a digit     static int findCount(int d)     {         return 9 * (int)((Math.pow(10, d - 1)                           - Math.pow(9, d - 1)));     }           // utility function to count     // the required answer     static int findCountUpto(int d)     {         // Count of numbers with digits          // smaller than or equal to d.         int totalCount = 0;         for (int i = 1; i <= d; i++)             totalCount += findCount(i);               return totalCount;     }           // Driver Code     public static void main(String args[])     {         int d = 1;         System.out.println(findCountUpto(d));               d = 2;         System.out.println( findCountUpto(d) );               d = 4;         System.out.println(findCountUpto(d));     } }     /*This code is contributed by Nikita Tiwari.*/

Time Complexity : O(d)
Auxiliary Space : O(1)
Can we make the solution more efficient ?
Yes, if we see closely, the required answer is obtained using the sum of following two Geometric Progressions:

i'th term of G.P. 1 = 9*10i - 1  where 1 <= i <= d
i'th term of G.P. 2 = 9*9i - 1 where 1 <= i <= d
The final answer is nothing but,
Sum of G.P 1 = 9*(10d - 1)/(10-1) = 9*(10d - 1)/9Similarly,Sum of G.P 2 = 9*(9d - 1)/(9-1) = 9*(9d - 1)/8Using the above facts, we can optimize the solution to run in O(1) 

Below is an efficient program for the same.

 // C++ program to find the count of natural numbers upto a // given number of digits that contain atleast one zero #include using namespace std;   // Utility function to calculate the count of natural numbers // upto a given number of digits that contain atleast one zero int findCountUpto(int d) {     // Sum of two GP series     int GP1_Sum = 9*((pow(10,d)-1)/9);     int GP2_Sum = 9*((pow(9,d)-1)/8);       return GP1_Sum - GP2_Sum; }   // Driver Code int main() {     int d = 1;     cout << findCountUpto(d) << endl;       d = 2;     cout << findCountUpto(d) << endl;       d = 4;     cout << findCountUpto(d) << endl;     return 0; }

Time Complexity : O(logd) because inbuilt pow function is used
Auxiliary Space : O(1)

In the next set we’d see another problem of increased difficulty that can be solved using very similar technique.
