Beautiful Days at the Movies

Problem Statement :

Lily likes to play games with integers. She has created a new game where she determines the difference between a number and its reverse. For instance, given the number 12, its reverse is 21. Their difference is 9. The number 120 reversed is 21, and their difference is 99.

She decides to apply her game to decision making. She will look at a numbered range of days and will only go to a movie on a beautiful day.

Given a range of numbered days, [i.....j] and a number k, determine the number of days in the range that are beautiful. Beautiful numbers are defined as numbers where | i - reverse(i) | is evenly divisible by k. If a day's value is a beautiful number, it is a beautiful day. Return the number of beautiful days in the range.

Function Description

Complete the beautifulDays function in the editor below.

beautifulDays has the following parameter(s):

int i: the starting day number
int j: the ending day number
int k: the divisor


int: the number of beautiful days in the range

Input Format

A single line of three space-separated integers describing the respective values of i, j, and k.

1 <= i <= j <= 2*10^6
1 <= k <= 2*10^9

Solution :


                            Solution in C :

python 3 :

def beautifulDays(i, j, k):
    daycount = int(0)
    for x in range(i, j+1):
        if (x - int(str(x)[::-1])) % k == 0:
            daycount += 1
    return daycount

Java  :

import java.util.*;
import java.text.*;
import java.math.*;
import java.util.regex.*;

public class Solution {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        /* Enter your code here. Read input from STDIN. Print output to STDOUT. Your class should be named Solution. */
        Scanner in = new Scanner(;
        int i = in.nextInt();
        int j = in.nextInt();
        int k = in.nextInt();
        int count = 0;
        for (int a=i;j>a; a++){
            StringBuilder temp = new StringBuilder();
            String temp1 = temp.toString();
            int aRev = Integer.parseInt(temp1);

C++  :

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

bool isOk(int x, int mod) {
    int n = x;
    int m = 0;
    while (x > 0) {
        m = m * 10 + x % 10;
        x /= 10;
    int delta = abs(n - m);
    delta %= mod;
    return (delta == 0);

int main() {
    int l, r, k;
    cin >> l >> r >> k;
    int ans = 0;
    for (int i = l; i <= r; i++) {
        if (isOk(i, k)) {
    cout << ans << endl;
    return 0;

C  :

int main()
int i=0,j=0,k=0,x=0,rem=0,sum=0,count=0;
return 0;

Insert a node at a specific position in a linked list

Given the pointer to the head node of a linked list and an integer to insert at a certain position, create a new node with the given integer as its data attribute, insert this node at the desired position and return the head node. A position of 0 indicates head, a position of 1 indicates one node away from the head and so on. The head pointer given may be null meaning that the initial list is e

Reverse a linked list

Given the pointer to the head node of a linked list, change the next pointers of the nodes so that their order is reversed. The head pointer given may be null meaning that the initial list is empty. Example: head references the list 1->2->3->Null. Manipulate the next pointers of each node in place and return head, now referencing the head of the list 3->2->1->Null. Function Descriptio

Compare two linked lists

You’re given the pointer to the head nodes of two linked lists. Compare the data in the nodes of the linked lists to check if they are equal. If all data attributes are equal and the lists are the same length, return 1. Otherwise, return 0. Example: list1=1->2->3->Null list2=1->2->3->4->Null The two lists have equal data attributes for the first 3 nodes. list2 is longer, though, so the lis
