armstrong number
an armstrong number of three digits is an integer such that the sum of the cubes of its digits is equal to the number itself. for example, 171 is an armstrong number since 3**3+7**7+1**1=371. i have try but not succed.kindly help me . here is what i did : int main() { int a,b,n,s=0; printf("enter no"); scanf("%d",&n); b=s; while(n>10) { a=n%10; s=s+(a*a*a); n=n/10; }
s=s+(n*n*n); if(b==s) printf("armstrong number\n"); return 0;
}

More generally, an Armstrong number is a number which, expressed in base b, has n digits such that the sum of its (base b) digits, each raised to the power n, is equal to the number itself. Below, we confine ourselves to three base ten digits, for simplicity. 171 is not an Armstrong number because the cubes of 1, 7, and 1 are 1, 343, and 1 respectively. Their sum is 345. 371 is, however, an Armstrong number, but this has nothing to do with raising 7 to the power 7 or 1 to the power 1. > i have try but not succed.kindly help me . > here is what i did : > int main() > { > int a,b,n,s=0; > printf("enter no");
Calling a function without a valid function prototype in scope invokes undefined behaviour. You forgot to #include <stdio.h> fflush(stdout) if you want your prompt to appear before you block for input. > scanf("%d",&n);
scanf returns an important value. Check that it's the right value. If it isn't, you know something went wrong. > b=s; > while(n>10) > { > a=n%10; > s=s+(a*a*a); > n=n/10; > } > s=s+(n*n*n); > if(b==s) > printf("armstrong number\n"); > return 0; > }

See Richard's comment on the example.

What values are being compared and why? That should point you to your problem. Also, if the power and the number of digits is required to be the same by definition of an Armstrong number, then the test may fail for numbers with the wrong number of digits.  Thad
