# Sum of all possible expressions of a numeric string possible by inserting addition operators

Given a numeric string **str** of length **N**, the task is to find the sum of all possible expressions by inserting the **‘+’** operator between the characters of the string any number of times.

**Examples:**

Input:str = “125”Output:176Explanation:

Inserting “+” after 1st index modifies str to “1+25” and value = 26

Inserting “+” after 2nd index modifies str to “12+5” and value = 17

Inserting “+” after both 1st and 2nd index modifies str to “1+2+5” and value = 8

Therefore, the total sum of all possible expression is 125 + 26 + 17 + 8 = 176

Input:str = “9999999999”Output:12656242944

**Approach:** The idea is to insert the **‘+’** operator at all possible index of the string in all possible ways and calculate the sum. Finally, print the total sum obtained. Follow the steps below to solve the problem:

- Initialize a variable say,
**sumOfExp**to store the sum of all possible expression by inserting the**‘+’**operator at all possible indices of the string. - Generate all possible subset of indices of the string iteratively. For every subset of indices inserts the ‘+’ operator at elements of the subset and increment
**sumOfExp**by the sum of the current expression. - Finally, print the value of
**sumOfExp**.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
