C++ Exercises: Check whether a number is a Strong Number or not

C++ Numbers: Exercise-45 with Solution

Write a program in C++ to check whether a number is a Strong Number or not.

Sample Solution:

C++ Code:

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
    int i, n, n1, s1 = 0, j;
    long fact;
    cout << "\n\n Check whether a number is Strong Number or not:\n";
    cout << "----------------------------------------------------\n";
    cout << " Input a number to check whether it is Strong number: ";
    cin >> n;
    n1 = n;
    for (j = n; j > 0; j = j / 10) {
        fact = 1;
        for (i = 1; i <= j % 10; i++) {
            fact = fact * i;
        }
        s1 = s1 + fact;
    }
    if (s1 == n1) {
        cout << n1 << " is Strong number." << endl;
    }
    else {
        cout << n1 << " is not a Strong number." << endl;
    }
}

Sample Output:

Check whether a number is Strong Number or not:                                                
 -------------------------------------------------------                                             
 Input a number to check whether it is Strong number: 24 
24 is not a Strong 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
