# Number of moves required to guess a permutation in C++

C++Server Side ProgrammingProgramming

Given a number N, we need to find the moves required to guess the permutation in the worst-case scenario. The number of moves required to guess the permutation will be n!. Let's take an example.

Input

5

Output

129

When we have 5 elements, then we have 5 ways to guess, and 4 ways when we have 4 elements and it continuous till 1.

## Algorithm

• Initialise the number n.
• Initialise count to 1.
• Write a loop that iterates from 1 to n.
• Multiply count with the current number.
• Return the count.

## Implementation

Following is the implementation of the above algorithm in C++

#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
int getNumberMoves(int n) {
int count = 0;
for (int i = 1; i <= n; i++) {
count += i * (n - i);
}
count += n;
return count;
}
int main() {
int n = 9;
cout << getNumberMoves(n) << endl;
return 0;
}

## Output

If you run the above code, then you will get the following result.
