JavaScript Basic: Exercise-112 with Solution

Write a JavaScript program to find the number of trailing zeros in the decimal representation of the factorial of a given number.

Pictorial Presentation:

JavaScript: Find the number of trailing zeros in the decimal representation of the factorial of a given number.

Sample Solution:

HTML Code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width">
  <title> Find the number of trailing zeros in the decimal representation of the factorial of a given number</title>
</head>
<body>

</body>
</html>

JavaScript Code:

function trailing_zeros_factorial(n) {
    var result = 0;
    for (var i = 5; i <= n; i += 5) {
        var num = i;
        while (num % 5 === 0) {
            num /= 5;
            result++;
        }
    }
    return result;
}

console.log(trailing_zeros_factorial(8))
console.log(trailing_zeros_factorial(9))
console.log(trailing_zeros_factorial(10))

Sample Output:

1
1
2

    let result = 0;
    for (let i = 5; i <= n; i += 5) {
        let num = i;
        while (num % 5 === 0) {
            num /= 5;
            result++;
        }
    }
    return result;
}

console.log(trailing_zeros_factorial(8))
console.log(trailing_zeros_factorial(9))

JavaScript: Tips of the Day

Parse an HTTP Cookie header string and return an object of all cookie name-value pairs

Example:

const parseCookie = str =>
  str
    .split(';')
    .map(v => v.split('='))
    .reduce((acc, v) => {
      acc[decodeURIComponent(v[0].trim())] = decodeURIComponent(v[1].trim());
      return acc;
    }, {});
console.log(parseCookie('foo=bar; equation=E%3Dmc%5E2')); // { foo: 'bar', equation: 'E=mc^2' } 

Output:

[object Object] {
  equation: "E=mc^2",
  foo: "bar"
}
