## Q. Python Program to Count the Number of Digits in a Number.

Here you will find an algorithm and program in Python programming language to count number of digits in a number. First let us understand this.

**Explanation : **Suppose an input number is given as 12341 then the output will be 5 as there are 5 digits in the given number and digits are 1, 2, 3, 4, 1.

## Algorithm to count the number of digits in a given number

START step 1 : Input a number from user. Store it in some variable say num. step 2 : Initialize another variable to store total digits say digit = 0. step 3 : while num != 0 then increment count by 1 i.e. count+=1. step 4 : Divide num by 10 to remove last digit of the given number i.e. num = num / 10. step 5 : Repeat step 3 to 4 till num != 0. STOP

# Python Program to Count Number of Digits in a Number

def count_digit(num): count = 0 while num != 0: num //= 10 count+= 1 return count num = 874512369 print ("Number of digits : % d"%(count_digit(num)))

#### Output

Number of digits : 9
