Problem 491: Double pandigital number divisible by 11
(see projecteuler.net/problem=491)
We call a positive integer double pandigital if it uses all the digits 0 to 9 exactly twice (with no leading zero).
For example, 40561817703823564929 is one such number.
How many double pandigital numbers are divisible by 11?
My Algorithm
bruteForce
counts all permutations which are divisible by 11.
It finds the correct result in a reasonable amount of time when the highest digit is 6.
And of course that simple approach is way to slow when the highest digit is 9.
A number is divisible by 11 if the difference of the sum of the digits at odd and the even positions is divisible by 11.
40561817703823564929 is not divisible by 11 because 4+5+1+1+7+0+2+5+4+2 = 31 and 0+6+8+7+0+8+3+6+9+9 = 56 and 56 - 31= 25 is not divisible by 11.
There is actually an astonishing variety of rules for divisibility by 11: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Divisibility_rule
All double pandigital numbers are permutations of the string "00112233445566778899"
(excluding leading zeros).
Ten of these digits will be at odd positions and ten at even positions.
If I create a bitmask which digits will be at odd positions then I need a 20-bit integer where exactly 10 bits are set.
All bitmasks with exactly 10 bits set are between 00000000001111111111b (minBitmask
) and 11111111110000000000b (maxBitmask
).
The nice function nextNumberWithSameBits(x)
creates the next number with the same number of bits set as x
and was first published in HAKMEM 175 (often called "snoob").
However, there are a few bordercases:
I can choose a digit once, twice or not at all to appear at an odd position. A bitmask might be:
99887766554433221100
01001101010111000101
→ exactly 10 bits set
For each digit I must only accept the bit patterns:
01 (=> use that digit once, e.g. for 9,6,...),
11 (twice, e.g. for 7 and 3) and
00 (none, e.g. for 8 and 2)
I must not accept bit pattern 10 because it's the same as 01 (see my loop with the variable reduce
).
The sum of all digits is 2 * T(9) where T is the triangular number:
digitSum = 2 * dfrac{9 * (9 + 1)}{2} = 90
The sum of all digits at even positions can be computed when I know the sum of all digits at odd positions:
sumEven = digitSum - sumOdd
And the difference of sumEven and sumOdd has to be divisible by 11:
(sumEven - sumOdd) == 0 mod 11
((digitSum - sumOdd) - sumOdd) == 0 mod 11
(digitSum - 2 * sumOdd) == 0 mod 11
Whenever I know that the bitmasks generate matching numbers I have to figure out how many different numbers are possible.
If x_i represents how often x appears at odd positions then x_i can be either 0, 1 or 2.
The total number of permutations will be:
p(x) = dfrac{10!}{x_0!x_1!x_2!...x_9!}
If y_i represents how often y appears at even positions then y_i can be either 0, 1 or 2. The formula remains the same:
p(y) = dfrac{10!}{y_0!y_1!y_2!...y_9!}
And the sum of all p(x)p(y) will be the result.
Interesting is that the number of digits that appear twice is the same for p(x) and p(y). Even though a few x_i != y_i, it's still p(x) = p(y).
There my code simplifies to result += permutationsRepeated[repeated] * permutationsRepeated[repeated];
Excluding leading zeros is simple: just multiply with frac{9}{10}.

You can submit your own input to my program and it will be instantly processed at my server:
This is equivalent toecho 3 | ./491

Note: the original problem's input 9

because just copying results is a soft skill reserved for idiots.
