Program to find maximum number by adding 5 at any place in Python

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Suppose we have a number n, we have to find the maximum number we can get by inserting 5 anywhere in the number.

So, if the input is like n = 834, then the output will be 8534.

To solve this, we will follow these steps −

  • if n > 0, then

    • s := n as string

    • k := blank string

    • c := False

    • for each character i in s, do

      • if i < 5 and c is False, then

        • k := k concatenate "5" concatenate i

        • c := True

      • otherwise,

        • k := k concatenate i

    • return k as integer

  • otherwise,

    • k := blank string

    • s := |n| as string

    • c := False

    • for each character i in s, do

      • if i > 5 and c is same as False, then

        • k := k concatenate "5" concatenate i

        • c := True

      • otherwise,

        • k := k concatenate i

    • if c is false, then

      • k := k concatenate "5"

  • return (-k)

Example

Let us see the following implementation to get better understanding

def solve(n):
   if n > 0:
      s = str(n)
      k = ""
      c = False
      for i in s:
         if int(i) < 5 and c == False:
            k += "5" + i
            c = True
         else:
            k += i
      return int(k)
   else:
      k = ""
      s = str(abs(n))
      c = False
      for i in s:
         if int(i) > 5 and c == False:
            k += "5" + i
            c = True
         else:
            k += i
      if not c:
          k += "5"
      return int("-" + k)

n = 834
print(solve(n))

Input

834

Output

8534
