What is Spy Number

Spy numbers are those numbers whose sum of all digits is equal to the product of all digits.

Spy number in java

Number to check: 123  
Sum of digits: 1+2+3 = 6 
Product of digits: 1*2*3 = 6  
Is Product of digits equals Sum of digits : Yes // 123 is a Spy number
Number to check: 1124  
Sum of digits: 1+1+2+4 = 8 
Product of digits: 1*1*2*4 = 8  
Is Product of digits equals Sum of digits : Yes // 1124 is a Spy number

Below are examples of numbers which are NOT Spy numbers:

Number to check: 180  
Sum of digits: 1+8+0 = 9 
Product of digits: 1*8*0 = 0  
Is Product of digits equals Sum of digits : No // 180 is NOT a Spy number

Number to check: 234  
Sum of digits: 2+3+4 = 9 
Product of digits: 2*3*4 = 24  
Is Product of digits equals Sum of digits : No // 234 is NOT a Spy number

Java Program for Spy Number

import java.util.*;

public class JavaHungry {
    public static void main(String args[]) {
        System.out.println("Enter any number : ");
        Scanner scan = new Scanner(System.in);
        Integer inputNumber = scan.nextInt();
    public static void checkSpyNumber(int inputNumber)
        int number = inputNumber;
        int rightMostDigit, sumOfDigits, productOfDigits;
        sumOfDigits = 0;
        productOfDigits = 1;
        while(number != 0)
            rightMostDigit = number % 10;
            sumOfDigits = sumOfDigits + rightMostDigit;
            productOfDigits = productOfDigits * rightMostDigit;
            number = number / 10;
        if (sumOfDigits == productOfDigits)
            System.out.println(inputNumber + " is a Spy number");
            System.out.println(inputNumber + " is NOT a Spy number");            

Enter any number :
234 is NOT a Spy Number

Algorithm for Spy Number

1. Calculate the sum of digits of the inputNumber.
2. Calculate the product of digits of the inputNumber.
3. If the sum of digits equals the product of digits then the number is Spy number otherwise not.
