Java Program to check for Keith Number

Question:

Write a Program in Java to input a number and check whether it is a Keith Number or not.

Note:A Keith Number is an integer N with ‘d’ digits with the following property:

If a Fibonacci-like sequence (in which each term in the sequence is the sum of the ‘d’ previous terms) is formed, with the first ‘d’ terms being the decimal digits of the number N, then N itself occurs as a term in the sequence.

For example, 197 is a Keith number since it generates the sequence
1, 9, 7, 17, 33, 57, 107, 197, ………..

Some keith numbers are: 14 ,19, 28 , 47 , 61, 75, 197, 742, 1104, 1537……………

Solution:

```/**
* The class Keith inputs a number and checks whether it is a Keith Number or not
* @author : www.javaforschool.com
* @Program Type : BlueJ Program - Java
*/

import java.io.*;
class Keith
{
public static void main(String args[])throws IOException
{
System.out.print("Enter the number : "); //inputting the number

int copy=n;
String s=Integer.toString(n);
int d=s.length(); //finding the number of digits (d) in the number
int arr[]=new int[n]; //array for storing the terms of the series

for(int i=d-1; i>=0; i--)
{
arr[i]=copy%10; //storing the digits of the number in the array
copy=copy/10;

}

int i=d,sum=0;
while(sum<n) //finding the sum till it is less than the number
{
sum = 0;
for(int j=1; j<=d; j++) //loop for generating and adding the previous 'd' terms
{
sum=sum+arr[i-j];
}
arr[i]=sum; //storing the sum in the array
i++;
}

/* When the control comes out of the while loop, either the
sum is equal to the number or greater than it */

if(sum==n) //if sum is equal to the number, then it is a Keith number
System.out.println("The number is a Keith Number");
else
System.out.println("The number is a not a Keith Number");
}
}```

Output:

Enter the number : 197
The number is a Keith Number

Enter the number : 14
The number is a Keith Number

Enter the number : 53
The number is a not a Keith Number
