Example Program – Armstrong Number


Below sample programs finds whether the given number is an Armstrong Number or not.

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, 371 is an Armstrong number since 3**3 + 7**3 + 1**3 = 371. Few more Examples for the Armstrong numbers are : 153, 371, 9474, 54748.
