### Problem statement

This program take any number from user and check it is *self-descriptive* number or not.

### What is *self-descriptive* number?

A number is called as *self-descriptive* when the position of digit represents the number of time it appears in that number.

There are so many numbers are *self-descriptive*.

For example:

1 |
1210, 2020, 21200, 3211000, 42101000 etc |

Consider 2020,

- position 0 has value 2 and there are two 0s in the number;
- position 1 has value 0 and there are no 1s in the number;
- position 2 has value 2 and there are two 2s in the number;
- position 3 has value 0 and there are zero 3s in the number.

Now consider a *self-descriptive* number 6210001000,

- contains 6 at position 0, indicating that there are six 0s in 6210001000;
- It contains 2 at position 1, indicating that there are two 1s in 6210001000;
- It contains 1 at position 2, indicating that there is one 2 in 6210001000;
- It contains 0 at position 3, indicating that there is no 3 in 6210001000;
- It contains 0 at position 4, indicating that there is no 4 in 6210001000;
- It contains 0 at position 5, indicating that there is no 5 in 6210001000;
- It contains 1 at position 6, indicating that there is one 6 in 6210001000;
- It contains 0 at position 7, indicating that there is no 7 in 6210001000;
- It contains 0 at position 8, indicating that there is no 8 in 6210001000;
- It contains 0 at position 9, indicating that there is no 9 in 6210001000.

**Output**

1 2 |
enter the number 3211000 Number is a self descriptive |
