Actually I find my fault with the programming-challenges judge than with this judge. I had failed attempts with LC-Display(110104/706) and WERTYU(110301/10082) in which both got P.E. and W.A. respectively in programming-challenges but were instantly acceted by this judge. What's your code for The Trip like?

Yes, I have experienced similar situation, too. I had P.E. on LC-Display in this judge. But after getting P.E. on Programming-challenges, I changed the code & got AC in UVa, but Programming-challenges judge is still unmoved with its P.E. I have certain troubles with a few other problems, too. But the problem The Trip was surprisingly accepted in PC with a code which even I don't think to be my most correct version for this problem.

Here is my code - [cpp]

/*@begin_of_source_code*/

/* The Trip */

/* AC in PC but WA in UV*/

#include<stdio.h>

#define size 1003

int main(void)

{

long n,i;

double avg,sum,sumup,sumdown,out,data[size];

while(scanf("%ld",&n)==1)

{

if(!n)

break;

sum = 0.0;

for(i=0;i<n;i++)

{

scanf("%lf",&data

*);*

sum += data*;*

}

avg = sum/n;

avg = (long)(avg * 100 + 0.5);

avg /= 100;

sumup = sumdown = 0.0;

for(i=0;i<n;i++)

{

if(data* < avg)*

sumdown += (avg - data*);*

else

sumup += (data* - avg);*

}

if(sumup<sumdown)

out = sumup;

else

out = sumdown;

printf("$%.2lf\n",out);

}//end case while

return 0;

}

/*@end_of_source_code*/

[/cpp]

Hmm thanks! Your code is actually exactly the same as mine except that you added 0.5 to ur avg. Now it has been accepted by the PC judge. Hmm... how to get it accepted on UVA.

Hey thanks!!! I read your post and made changes accordingly and now my prog works! I love you!!

But just now I've submitted the same problem in the programming-Challenge judge where it recieved AC. Can someone tell me what's wrong with this problem in UVa judge?

After reading the post by waseem50 I finally got it accepted by UVA! Try it:

[c]#include <math.h>

#include <stdio.h>

long double round(long double x, int precision)

{

return floor(x*pow(10.0,(long double)precision)+0.5)/pow(10.0,(long double)precision);

}

int main(void)

{

int no, ii;

long double total, above, below, right, student[1000];

while (1)

{

scanf("%d\n", &no);

if (!no)

break;

for (ii = 0, total = 0; ii < no; ii++)

{

scanf("%Lf\n", &student[ii]);

total += student[ii];

}

right = round((total / no), 2);

above = below = 0;

for (ii = 0; ii < no; ii++)

{

if (student[ii] < right)

below += right - student[ii];

if (student[ii] > right)

above += student[ii] - right;

}

if (above == 0)

above = below;

if (below == 0)

below = above;

printf("$%.2Lf\n", round(((below < above) ? below : above), 2));

}

return 0;

}

[/c]

**Thanks ^ ((1+2+3+...... inf)!) ** 2 u.

. The conversion from long 2 long long & double 2 long double works. It was such a tedious problem & annoyed me so much !

Thanks again.

Finally it works. Special thanks 2 waeem50 & also 2 SePulTribe.

Haha yeah no prob. I know that feeling of frustration! =)

### I found something ...

by **zhenh**

I once take the inputs in this way:

scanf("%d",&n); /* n */

scanf("%Lf",&x); /* money */ ....

==> WA

now:

scanf("%d\n",&n);

scanf("%Lf\n",&x); .....

==> Accepted...

Everything else are exactly the same, only the CR characters in the format strings were added.

Does anybody have any ideas about why?

I read all the posts about the problem. I considered the extra pennies , extreme cases etc. I am affraid that I miss something essential about c++ programming and portability. Thanks in advance for any help.

Code: Select all

```
/* @JUDGE_ID: xx 10137 C++ "The Trip" */
#include <iostream>
#include <iomanip>
using namespace std ;
int main(){
short sub ;
long people=1 , coun , residue , average , nmore , nless ;
long money[1001] , sum , more , less ;
long double hold , result ;
while (people!=0){
sum = 0 ;
cin >> people ;
if (people==0) break ;
for(coun=1 ; coun<=people ; ++coun){
cin >> hold ;
money[coun] = (int)(hold*100) ;
sum += money[coun] ;}
residue =sum%people ;
average = (int)((sum-residue)/people) ;
if (residue==0) sub = 0 ;
else sub = 1 ;
more = 0 ;
nmore = 0 ;
less = 0 ;
nless = 0 ;
for(coun=1 ; coun<=people ; ++coun)
if (money[coun]>average){
more += money[coun] - average - sub ;
++nmore ;}
else {
less += average - money[coun] ;
++nless ;}
cout.setf(ios::fixed) ;
cout.precision(2) ;
if (residue > nmore)
result = static_cast<double>(more)/100 ;
else
result = static_cast<double>(less)/100 ;
cout << '$' << result << endl ;
}
return 0;}
```

long double is not necessary, I use double and get AC.

But waseem50's test IO data has really helped me. Thank you anyway.

Hey... I guess I'm having problem passing one of the test cases of this problem... Please give me a hint as to what I'm missing in this task. My solution is fairly simple: I'm finding the arithmetic mean, and then the differences...

Here is my code:

VAR N: integer;

A: ARRAY[1..1000] of double;

Answer: double;

procedure ReadInfo;

VAR I: integer;

begin

FOR I:=1 TO N DO ReadLn(A*);*

end;

procedure WriteOutput;

begin

WriteLn('$', Answer:4:2);

end;

procedure Solve;

VAR I: integer;

AMean: double;

A1, A2: double;

begin

AMean:=0; A1:=0; A2:=0;

FOR I:=1 TO N DO

AMean:=AMean+A*;*

AMean:=Round((AMean / N)*100)/100;

FOR I:=1 TO N DO

IF A* > AMean*

then A1:=A1 + A*-AMean*

else A2:=A2 + Amean-A*;*

IF A1<A2 then

Answer:=A1 else Answer:=A2;

end;

begin

ReadLn(N);

WHILE (N<>0) DO

begin

ReadInfo;

Solve;

WriteOutput;

ReadLn(N);

end;

end.

Thanks. I just made a mistake with the calculation of average. With your help, I got AC.

### The Trip 10137

You need to find the MINUMUM amount required to be exchanged. For that matter you have to find a way to test ONLY UPTO TWO DECIMAL PLACES as to what is the corrent amount. Secondly your A. Mean should also be rounded upto two decimal places.

Example : in the second test case given in the problem, one person has spent 3.01, so all he needs to add to his spent amount is 5.99, not 6. That makes the net amount 6+5.99 - 11.99.

Hope you got the idea.
