It seems, you are too lazy to read through all this thread So here is what I wrote 8 posts before your first post:
And please read the NB part: you should only output a maximum sequence of determinate primes, no subset of it.
So try these test cases:
251 263
251 269

For first test case you should output nothing, for second test case you should print:
251 257 263 269
As you can see, the given limits of the interval are included, so the interval given here ranges from 251 to 269 with 251 and 269 included. I think this is the usual way how "between" is used, but the problem description should have contained some word that the endpoints are included to the interval.
251 257 263
251 257 263 269

I am sorry that I pasted a old version.
let me paste again

// deleted after ac

But WA again

Yes, the output is ill specified. Since this is a red flag question, the order in which the sequences are printed should be specified. To get AC, however, you should output the sequences in order of increasing first element.
Also only print one space between numbers in a sequence and no additional spaces, or you'll get PE. Also not specified.

Re your second question: can you give an example? LPH

Well, i think it is not ill specified. The very beginning of the problem says:
If three or more consecutive primes are uni-distance they are called Determinate Primes.
So we must and are only to output those sequences of primes that is consecutive(i.e. we should output 47 53 59, because it's consecutive primes; but we shoudn't output 47 59 71, because there is some prime between these three numbers.) According to this, there won't be any ambiguousity in the output.

To Kuba's 2nd problem: Since the input will not exceed 32000, and we are only have to print the sequence in the range that the input give, should we output those sequences that has some prime exceeds 32000? LPH [acronym]

For those who got WA and have followed every hint above this msg,

I just find something and got ACC

1. I swap x and y if x > y
2. There are 162 sequences from 0 to 32000
Try this test case
251 263
251 269
257 269

before my program output
251 257 263 269
257 263 269

but should be
251 257 263 269

It's wrong because we always check with the next one, without checking the previous one.

Hope helps =)

regards,
stephanus

Your task is to print all the Determinate Prime sets between two integers (inclusive)
Problem description says the interval is inclusive.

My code pass in all this test and still WA What is the prob?

[c]

v=0;
v=0;
for (i=2;i<35000;i++)
{
if (v[i]==1)
for (j=i*2;j<35000;j+=i)
v[j]=0;
}
tam = 0;
/* put the prims in primes */
for (i=0;i<35000;i++)
{
if (v[i])
{
prime[tam]=i;
tam++;
}
}
while (scanf("%d %d",&x,&y) == 2)
{
if (y<x) /* swap */
{
i=x; x=y; y=i;

tamp = 0;

I feel this problem needs to state explicitly that if the first number is bigger than the second number, the correct answer is not to print nothing, but rather swap and then check.

There seem to be many problems on this site where for some swapping is wrong and some it isn't, and you can't really tell until you submit and get WA.

why i always got WA?? [cpp]

Try to precalc result and find total number of such sets.
There are 162 of them.

### 10650

can anyone check my I/O? i wonder where is the mistake? is my sorting priority ok? its on difference 1st then on lexicographic.

Code: Select all

``````inputs:

10000 32000
1 100
500 1000
1000 500

101 107
80 180
963 147

0 0
