Given two strings S[] and N[] of the same size, the task is to update string S[] by adding the digit of string N[] of respective indices.

Examples:

Input: S = “sun”, N = “966”
Output: bat

Input: S = “apple”, N = “12580”
Output: brute

Approach: The idea is to traverse the string S[] from left to right. Get the ASCII value of string N[] and add it to the ASCII value of string S[]. If the value exceeds 122, which is the ASCII value of the last alphabet ‘z’. Then subtract the value by 26, which is the total count of English alphabets. Update string S with the character of ASCII value obtained. Follow the steps below to solve the problem:

  • Iterate over the range [0, S.size()) using the variable i and perform the following tasks:
    • Initialize the variables a and b as the integer and ascii value of N[i] and S[i].
    • If b is greater than 122 then subtract 26 from b.
    • Set S[i] as char(b).
  • After performing the above steps, print the value of S[] as the answer.

Below is the implementation of the above approach.

C++




// C++ program for the above approach
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to update string
string updateStr(string S, string N)
{
    for (int i = 0; i < S.size(); i++) {
 
        // Get ASCII value
        int a = int(N[i]) - '0';
        int b = int(S[i]) + a;
 
        if (b > 122)
            b -= 26;
 
        S[i] = char(b);
    }
    return S;
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    string S = "sun";
    string N = "966";
    cout << updateStr(S, N);
    return 0;
}


Java




// Java code to implement above approach
import java.util.*;
public class GFG {
 
  // Function to update string
  static String updateStr(String S, String N)
  {
    String t = "";
    for (int i = 0; i < S.length(); i++) {
 
      // Get ASCII value
      int a = (int)(N.charAt(i) - '0');
      int b = (int)(S.charAt(i) + a);
 
      if (b > 122)
        b -= 26;
 
      char x = (char)b;
      t +=x;
    }
    return t;
  }
 
  // Driver code
  public static void main(String args[])
  {
    String S = "sun";
    String N = "966";
    System.out.println(updateStr(S, N));
 
  }
}

    for i in range(len(S)):
 
        # Get ASCII value
        a = ord(N[i]) - ord('0')
        b = ord(S[i]) + a
 
        if (b > 122):
            b -= 26
 
        S[i] = chr(b)
    return "".join(S)
