Suppose the dimension is 'a x b' and a<=b.
Now, we have two options.

1. We can make an 'a x a' square (since a<=b). And after dividing it into four parts, the length of a square becomes a/2.

2.
i) if(b>=a*4) then we can make four 'a x a' squares. And so, the length of a square is a.
ii) if(b<a*4) then we can make four 'b/4 x b/4' squares. And so, the length of a square is b/4.

Finally, we have to find maximum length from these two options.
Hope it helps.

Hi people,
to all inputs in the board my code get ac... but I am with wa in 0.061 s
Something have a critic input to this problem?
Code AC
have do too:
0
000

input:
6 4
4 4

output:
1

My program fail only for the following posted input:

Code: Select all

``````3
1 4
2 6
2 7
``````
For this the posted output is 3. Why isn't 1 ?

For all three rectangles I think the biggest is 4 birds of 1x1 squares. Larger is impossible because 4*2^2=16 is bigger than the rectangle's area.

the largest square for
2 7
is
1.75

Thanks! Now I got AC. I thought that all size of the birds are integers.

Invisible text follows (Spoiler):

Suppose the dimension is 'a x b' and a<=b.

Your way seemed a little over complicated for me. It was easier to think it this way:

The maximum side length given a and b will be MAX( MIN(a, b/4), MIN(a/2, b/2) )

Hello everybody!

Could you put more inputs here?
I tried all inputs posted here and the answers are equals.

thanks

The first has one side too small. So the max side of each of the four squares of this line would be 1 (the width of the minor side in a longside cutted paper). For the second line, the result would be 5 (half of the side in a cross cutted paper).

My replies are all being the same. I have already tested in others sites (toolkit etc). I am receiving Wrong Answer. I suppose that there is some "formating bug" in my code. Is there any special way to format it?
