# C++ Exercises: Check whether a given number is an Ugly number or not

## C++ Numbers: Exercise-1 with Solution

Write a program in C++ to check whether a given number is an Ugly number or not.

Pictorial Presentation:

Sample Solution:

C++ Code :

``````# include <iostream>
# include <string>
using namespace std;
int main()
{
int n,x=0;
cout << "\n\n Check whether a given number is an Ugly number:\n";
cout << "----------------------------------------------------\n";
cout << "Input an integer number: ";
cin >> n;
if (n <= 0) {
cout <<"Input a correct number.";
}
while (n != 1)
{
if (n % 5 == 0)
{
n /= 5;
}
else if (n % 3 == 0)
{
n /= 3;
}
else if (n % 2 == 0)
{
n /= 2;
}
else
{
cout <<"It is not an Ugly number."<<endl;
x = 1;
break;
}
}
if (x==0)
{
cout <<"It is an Ugly number."<<endl;
}
}
``````

Sample Output:

```Check whether a given number is an Ugly number:
----------------------------------------------------
Input an integer number: 25
It is an Ugly number.
```

## C++ Programming: Tips of the Day

How to use the PI constant in C++?

On some (especially older) platforms (see the comments below) you might need to

#define _USE_MATH_DEFINES and then include the necessary header file:
`#include<math.h>`

and the value of pi can be accessed via:

`M_PI`

In math.h (2014) it is defined as:

`# define M_PI           3.14159265358979323846  /* pi */`

but check your math.h for more. An extract from the "old" math.h (in 2009):

```/* Define _USE_MATH_DEFINES before including math.h to expose these macro
* definitions for common math constants.  These are placed under an #ifdef
* since these commonly-defined names are not part of the C/C++ standards.
*/```

However:

1. on newer platforms (at least on my 64 bit Ubuntu 14.04) I do not need to define the _USE_MATH_DEFINES
2. On (recent) Linux platforms there are long double values too provided as a GNU Extension:
`# define M_PIl          3.14159265358979323846`
