Maybe I'm not understand the problem thoroughly but I don't know how to caolculate the volumn of 2 cones.Does the cylinder in the center of "D"?

Try calculus. It's an easy problem.

Good luck. 8)

You can also use binary search..

the volumn of 2 cones can be calculated by this formula..

1/3 * pi * r * r * h

r of the circle of its bottom

h is the height of the cone

The formula is:


(but i'm still getting WA :cry: )

I don't see any reason of getting W.A.
I used double and solved the problem.

though the following algorithm is long .but hope it may help u ,as it work fine
1.First find total volume (using the given diameter /height)
2.remaining volume=Total volume - eaten volume
3. then consider the two conic having the base of given D
4.then last remaining volume=(small solid cylinder in the middle-2*small cone)
5. from that find the asked d :lol:
best of luck................... :D

while submitting my code in ANSI C 4.8.2 language i was getting wrong answer but when i submitted the same code in C++ 4.8.2 language i got accepted..... i am not understanding what differences have been created by changing the submission language.... please help... thanks in is my code :

Code: Select all

#define pi acos(-1)
int main()
    double d,v,voc,vbc,ar,dic;
    return 0;

Post in existing thread, use search by problem number (10297).

I think problem is in cbrt function of ANSI C 4.8.2 - GNU C Compiler's library. When you change cbrt to pow judge gives accepted in ANSI C.

Code: Select all

dic = pow(6 * ar / pi, 1.0 / 3);

Yes, cbrt() is not part of ANSI C, it is returning 1.0 with any argument.
