what's wrong with this problem?? f (n) = a x 2 + b x + c .... here what should I think?? Is it b*x or 'x' is here for multiplication.If so....where is other variable?? Again..... test cases are also confusing. 3rd and 4th test case are same but answer is different.

Plz...help. I got WA. I didn't participate in the contest. So i don't know if there was a clarification.

Yes.. the description is confusing..

The formula is

f(x) = a*x*x + b*x + c

The sample out is also wrong..

I think you can solve this problem using simple brute force.

the format is correct post above...

happy coding~

It is quite ridiculous to have wrong sample i/o......

The function would be.. f(n) = anĀ² + bn + c

Sample Input

0 0 10 5 100

0 0 10 6 100

1 2 3 4 5

1 2 3 3 5

0 0 0 0 0

Sample Output

101

0

0

4

3rd and 4th testcase are not the same...

I got Wrong Answer on my first attempt. I got AC after I changed my int variables to long long and I used the fmod function instead of the '%' operator. Don't know for which one it got AC.

Maybe this was true back in 2011 but the sample input's correct now (in 2014).

Also, no such "black magic" going on. ints should be sufficient since the maximum and minimum ranges for f(x) are within 1,000,000,000.

That being said, here's some input / output I found useful during testing / debugging.

Input:

Code: Select all

```
999 999 999 9 999
283 431 744 2 433
11 65 77 11 389
-999 -999 -999 1000000 987
0 0 0 0 0
```

AC Output:
