Given a number, we have to check that the entered number is IMEI Number or not.

An IMEI number is a 15 digit number and it is said to be IMEI number if and only if the sum of the number is exactly divisible by 10. But the condition is that when we entered the number the digit next to the previous one is taken as its double.


    Input: 47415403237518

    47415403237518 – Is an IMEI Number.

Program to check valid IMEI number in java

import java.io.BufferedReader;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.InputStreamReader;

public class CheckIMEINumber
	// Function for finding and returning sum of digits of a number
	int sumDig(int n) 
		// initialise here.
		int a = 0;
	    	a = a + n%10;
	        n = n/10;
	    return a;
	public static void main(String args[])throws IOException
		// create object here.
		CheckIMEINumber ob = new CheckIMEINumber();
	    BufferedReader br=new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));
	    // The 'Long' data type is used to store 15 digits.
	    System.out.print("Enter a 15 digit IMEI code : ");
	    long n = Long.parseLong(br.readLine()); 
	    // Converting the number into String for finding length
	    String s = Long.toString(n); 
	    int l = s.length();
	    // If length is not 15 then IMEI is Invalid
	    System.out.println("Output : Invalid Input");
	    	int d = 0, sum = 0;
	        for(int i=15; i>=1; i--)
	        	d = (int)(n%10);
	        	if(i%2 == 0)
	        		// Doubling every alternate digit
	        		d = 2*d; 
	        	// Finding sum of the digits
	        	sum = sum + ob.sumDig(d); 
	        	n = n/10;
	        System.out.println("Output : Sum = "+sum);
	        	System.out.println("Valid IMEI Code");
	            System.out.println("Invalid IMEI Code");


First run:
Enter a 15 digit IMEI code : 111111111111111
Output : Sum = 22
Invalid IMEI Code

Second run:
Enter a 15 digit IMEI code : 474154203237518
Output : Sum = 60
Valid IMEI Code
