CodeFights - Comfortable Numbers - Solution


Let's say that number a feels comfortable with number b if a ≠ b and b lies in the segment [a - s(a), a + s(a)], where s(x) is the sum of x's digits.
How many pairs (a, b) are there, such that a < b, both a and b lie on the segment [L, R], and each number feels comfortable with the other?
For L = 10 and R = 12, the output should be
comfortableNumbers(L, R) = 2.
Here are all values of s(x) to consider:
  • s(10) = 1, so 10 is comfortable with 9 and 11;
  • s(11) = 2, so 11 is comfortable with 91012 and 13;
  • s(12) = 3, so 12 is comfortable with 910111314 and 15.
Thus, there are 2 pairs of numbers comfortable with each other within the segment [10; 12](10, 11) and (11, 12).
  • [time limit] 500ms (cpp)
  • [input] integer L
    Guaranteed constraints:
    1 ≤ L ≤ R ≤ 1000.
  • [input] integer R
    Guaranteed constraints:
    1 ≤ L ≤ R ≤ 1000.
  • [output] integer
    The number of pairs satisfying all the above conditions.


The problem is pretty straightforward due to constraints of the problem. We need to look at 1000C2 pairs in the worst case. We look at all the pairs in the range [L, R] and check if the pair of integers in a given pair are comfortable to each other.


int digitSum(int n){
    int _sum = 0;
    while (n){
        _sum += (n%10);
        n = n/10;
    return _sum;

int comfortableNumbers(int L, int R) {
    int total_pairs = 0;
    for(int i=L; i<=R; i++){
        for(int j=i+1; j<=R; j++){
            int s_a = digitSum(i);
            int s_b = digitSum(j);
            if (j>= (i-s_a) and j<= (i+s_a) and 
                  i>= (j-s_b) and i<= (j+s_b)
               ) {
    return total_pairs;


  1. there are many iphone app development company but only few are good and this blog need to convert into a beautiful website.

    1. I am glad that I saw this post. It is informative blog for us and we need this type of blog thanks for share this blog, Keep posting such instructional blogs and I am looking forward for your future posts. Python Projects for Students Data analytics is the study of dissecting crude data so as to make decisions about that data.

  8. A way to solve the problem in a more concise manner is as follows.

    def s(a):
    return sum([int(x) for x in str(a)])
    def comf(a, b):
    return a != b and b in range(a-s(a), a+s(a)+1)
    def comfortableNumbers(l, r):
    return len([(a, b) for a in range(l, r+1) for b in range(a+1, r+1) if comf(a, b) and comf(b, a)])

    The execution times should be similar
