# Print The First n strong Numbers in C

## First n strong Numbers

Today in this page we will be discussing the code to print First n strong Numbers in C programming language.

A strong number is a special number whose sum of the factorial of digits is equal to the original number. For Example, 145 is a strong number. Since, 1! + 4! + 5! = 145.

The idea is to iterate from (1, N)  and check if any number between the range is a strong number or not. If yes then print the corresponding number, else we need to check for the next number.

Let’s understand this with help of some examples.

Input: N = 100
Output: 1 2 145
Explanation:
Only 1, 2 and 145 are the strong numbers from 1 to 100 because
1! = 1,
2! = 2, and
(1! + 4! + 5!) = 145

## Print The First n strong Numbers C Code

Run
```#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int factorial(int f) {
int mul = 1;
for (int i = 1; i <= f; i++) {
mul = mul * i;
}
return mul;
}
int main() {
int fact = 1, sum = 0;
int n, r;
n=200;
printf("Strong numbers are :");
for (int i = 1; i <= n; i++) {
int k = i;
while (k != 0) {
r = k % 10;
fact = factorial(r);
k = k / 10;
sum = sum + fact;
}
if (sum == i) {
printf("%d, ", i);
}
sum = 0;
}
return 0;
}```
`Strong numbers are :1, 2, 145, `
