Posted: Tue Aug 09, 2005 7:44 am
Could someone give me some tricky input.
Appreciate you. ^^

Are you handling square numbers properly.

Try the following input output set...

Input:

Code: Select all

``````2
12
1000000
12345676
87675612
1251562
9412
6537
123
12
3244
56342
1233
344333
98123
1
2
3
243
123999
0``````
Output:

Code: Select all

``````2 2
12 8
1000000 85
12345676 68
87675612 23
1251562 41
9412 23
6537 5
123 5
12 8
3244 8
56342 41
1233 8
344333 14
98123 2
1 1
2 2
3 2
243 6
123999 5``````
Hope it works.

If you are getting WA, check your LCM calculating method.
Improper implementation can result in overflow.

It should be:

Code: Select all

``````LCM(int x,int y) {
return x/GCD(x,y) * y;
}``````
and not :

Code: Select all

``````LCM(int x,int y) {
return x*y/GCD(x,y);
}``````

For N = 87675612 my program return LCM Cardinality = 23;
There are all pairs what program found:
(1,87675612) (2,87675612) (3,29225204) (3,87675612) (4,21918903) (4,43837806) (4,87675612) (6,29225204) (6,87675612) (12,7306301) (12,14612602) (12,21918903) (12,29225204) (12,43837806) (12,87675612) (7306301,87675612) (14612602,87675612) (21918903,29225204) (21918903,87675612) (29225204,43837806) (29225204,87675612) (43837806,87675612) (87675612,87675612)
Where is mistake?

I think the output given above is wrong. Here is the output for that input from my AC program:

Code: Select all

``````2 2
12 8
1000000 85
12345676 68
87675612 23
1251562 41
9412 23
6537 5
123 5
12 8
3244 8
56342 41
1233 8
344333 14
98123 2
1 1
2 2
3 2
243 6
123999 5``````

thanks for all, I got accept already.
I make an overflow on LCM computation.
thanks Shamim

OOps sorry about that. Actually I used long long to calculate, but my compilar version doesnot support long long.

Thanks jdmetz for pointing that. I have changed the output...

### Some trickier input

Input:

446185740
892371480

Output:

Code: Select all

``````1073741824 31

This problem can also be solved by the prime....solution...

Yes - the method I used, I don't even keep track of the prime factors. I just count how many of each one and compute the answer as I factor the number. That got me down to .004 seconds. To get to .002, I had to do my own input and output parsing.

hi jdmetz,

can u please explain ur algorithm with prime solution?

Who can help me >< ....
Although I can deal with the sample input, I got WA.

while(1)
{
total=0;
count=0;
scanf("%d",&d);
if(d != 0)
{
for(i=2;i<=sqrt(d);i++)
{
if(d%i == 0)
{
a[count]=i;
b[count]=d/i;
count++;
total+=2;
}

Actually, your code doesn't solve the sample input on my computer. It may be caused by these warnings:

Code: Select all

``````foo.c: In function `main':
foo.c:15: warning: int format, long int arg (arg 2)
foo.c:32: warning: assignment makes integer from pointer without a cast
foo.c:49: warning: int format, long int arg (arg 2)
foo.c:49: warning: int format, long int arg (arg 3)
foo.c: In function `lcm':
foo.c:61: warning: operation on `a' may be undefined
``````
BTW, in future, please, put the posted code into

Code: Select all

`` tags to make it more readable. And also do not create a new topic if there are already few on the problem.``
