Minimum number of letters needed to make a total of n in C++.

C++Server Side ProgrammingProgramming

Problem statement

Given an integer n and let a = 1, b = 2, c= 3, ….., z = 26. The task is to find the minimum number of letters needed to make a total of n

If n = 23 then output is 1
If n = 72 then output is 3(26 + 26 + 20)

Algorithm

1. If n is divisible by 26 then answer is (n/26)
2. If n is not divisible by 26 then answer is (n/26) + 1

Example

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int minRequiredSets(int n){
   if (n % 26 == 0) {
      return (n / 26);
   } else {
      return (n / 26) + 1;
   }
}
int main(){
   int n = 72;
   cout << "Minimum required sets: " << minRequiredSets(n) << endl;
   return 0;
}

Output

When you compile and execute the above program. It generates the following output −

Minimum required sets: 3
