**Vampire Number in C# with Examples**

In this article, I am going to discuss **Vampire** **Number Program in C#** with Examples. Please read our previous article where we discussed the **Krishnamurthy** **Number Program in C#**. Here, in this article, first, we will learn what is a Vampire Number and then we will see how to implement Vampire Number Program in C#.

**What is a Vampire Number?**

A vampire number is a natural number with an even number of digits, that can be factored into two integers. For example, 1260 is a vampire number, with 21 and 60 as fangs, since 21 Ã— 60 = 1260.

126000 (which can be expressed as 21 Ã— 6000 or 210 Ã— 600) is not, as 21 and 6000 do not have the correct length, and both 210 and 600 have trailing zeroes

Some of the vampire numbers are:

1260, 1395, 1435, 1530, 1827, 2187, 6880, 102510, 104260, 105210, 105264, 105750, 108135, 110758, 115672, 116725, 117067, 118440, 120600, 123354, 124483, 125248, 125433, 125460, 125500, â€¦

**Multiple fang pairs **

A vampire number can have multiple distinct pairs of fangs.

The first of infinitely many vampire numbers with 2 pairs of fangs: **125460 = 204 Ã— 615 = 246 Ã— 510**

The first with 3 pairs of fangs: **13078260 = 1620 Ã— 8073 = 1863 Ã— 7020 = 2070 Ã— 6318**

The first with 4 pairs of fangs: **16758243290880 = 1982736 Ã— 8452080 = 2123856 Ã— 7890480 = 2751840 Ã— 6089832 = 2817360 Ã— 5948208**

**How to implement Vampire Number Program in C#?**

In mathematics, a vampire number (or true vampire number) is a composite natural number v, with an even number of digits n, that can be factored into two integers x and y each with n/2 digits and not both with trailing zeroes, where v contains precisely all the digits from x and from y, in any order, counting multiplicity. x and y are called the fangs.

Condition for a number to be Vampire Number:

- Has a pair number of digits. Letâ€™s call the number of digits: n
- You can obtain the number by multiplying two integers, x, and y, each with n/2 digits. x and y are the fangs.
- Both fangs cannot end simultaneously in 0.
- The number can be made with all digits from x and y, in any order and only using each digit once.

**Example:**

Positive natural number v = 1260

Even number of digits n = 4

Two integers x = 21 and y = 60 (Each integer contains n/2 i.e. 4/2 = 2 digits). There are no trailing zeros. Here, x and y are called fangs. Multiply x and y will give you 1260 and hence it is a Vampire Number

**Example: Vampire Number Program in C#**

The following sample code shows how to implement the Vampire number program in C#.Â

using System; namespace VampireNumber { class Program { static void Main(string[] args) { int i, j, n; ulong x; var f = new ulong[16]; var bigs = new ulong[] { 16758243290880UL, 24959017348650UL, 14593825548650UL, 0 }; ulong[] tens = new ulong[20]; tens[0] = 1; for (i = 1; i < 20; i++) tens[i] = tens[i - 1] * 10; for (x = 1, n = 0; n < 25; x++) { if ((j = fangs(x, f, tens)) == 0) continue; Console.Write(++n + ": "); show_fangs(x, f, j); } Console.WriteLine(); for (i = 0; bigs[i] > 0; i++) { if ((j = fangs(bigs[i], f, tens)) > 0) show_fangs(bigs[i], f, j); else Console.WriteLine(bigs[i] + " is not vampiric."); } Console.ReadLine(); } private static void show_fangs(ulong x, ulong[] f, int cnt) { Console.Write(x); int i; for (i = 0; i < cnt; i++) Console.Write(" = " + f[i] + " * " + (x / f[i])); Console.WriteLine(); } private static int fangs(ulong x, ulong[] f, ulong[] tens) { int n = 0; int nd = ndigits(x); if ((nd & 1) > 0) return 0; nd /= 2; ulong lo, hi; lo = Math.Max(tens[nd - 1], (x + tens[nd] - 2) / (tens[nd] - 1)); hi = Math.Min(x / lo, (ulong)Math.Sqrt(x)); ulong a, b, t = dtally(x); for (a = lo; a <= hi; a++) { b = x / a; if (a * b == x && ((a % 10) > 0 || (b % 10) > 0) && t == dtally(a) + dtally(b)) f[n++] = a; } return n; } private static ulong dtally(ulong x) { ulong t = 0; while (x > 0) { t += 1UL << (int)((x % 10) * 6); x /= 10; } return t; } private static int ndigits(ulong x) { int n = 0; while (x > 0) { n++; x /= 10; } return n; } } }
