Hi Dmytro_Chernysh,

I didn't understand your message. What is "long arigfmetic"???

Thanks,

Charlla

Dmytro_Chernysh wrote:Hi Charlla,

You do have a mistake -- you should have used "long arigfmetic" instead of just long long. For example, n=30

1186714748389

Obviously, for n=1000 the number is really huge

Hope you understood

When you have a really big number, let's say 1000 digit, the only way to keep it is an array. Now, if you want add, subrtact, multiplay or divide such numbers you have to write alogithms of addition, subtraction...

Such procedures/methods are called "long arifmetic".

The answer for n=1000 in this problem has more than a few hundred digits, therefore, you should use "long arifmetic"

Actually, C does not have any built in big integer. I mean, if there were, how big it would be, 1000 digit ,10000 digit or maybe even bigger.

The idea is to store numbers in string form, that is store them in a *char* array . Then you will have to create functions to add, subtract, multiply and possibly divide these numbers.

Would anybody explain how to get to this

f[n]:=f[n-1]+f[n-2]+f[n-3]+f[n-4]

that is

f[n]:=2*f[n-1]+f[n-2]+f[n-3]

### I got wrong answer for this, can anybody tell me why?

You should create array for saving alredy computed numbers

If someone ever comes up again with this question here is the answer:

Lets denote F(n) the sequence of numbers to be constructed that sum up to n.

It can BEGIN either with 1, 2, 3 or 4

When it begins with 1, then the answer is 1..F(n-1).. where F(n-1) is also a sequence of numbers that can begin with either 1, 2, 3 or 4 (that is why we include all possible arrangements). The same thing happens when the sequence begins with 2, 3 or 4.

For example if we take N = 5. Then we have: 1..F(4).. or 2..F(3).. or 3..F(2) or 4..F(4).. We can be sure that, for example, F(4) includes all possible sequences that sum up to 4 because we find it from the smaller problems with n < 4 and we know also that this sequence can begin with either 1, 2, 3 or 4 at the time of finding F(5).

Thus we include all possible arrangements of the sequence which elements sum up to n. Written generally and denoting f(n) as a number of such suquences that sum up to n we get such relation: f(n) = 2*f(n-1) + f(n-2) + f(n-3) as it was described earlier in this thread.

when n=4, the output is 2 or 33?

and when n=14 is the anser equal to n=11 && n=44 & n=41??

Posted: **Mon Jul 23, 2007 4:22 pm**

When n=4, output 33. When n=14, output 378773.

Hope these help.
