Hello Victor Barinov.
I think if your algo is right you won't get WA, because I think ther aren't spesial cases.Tell me your algorithm and may be I can help you.

### My algorithm:

///// c[] - array of coefficients p(x)

.....

lc = 0;
for (i = 1; i < n; ++i) {
cc = k*lc + c; /// calculating coefficient for q(x)
printf(" %ld", cc); /// out coefficient for q(x)
lc = cc;
}

cc = k*lc + c; /// calculating reminder r
printf("\nr = %ld\n", cc); /// out reminder r

....

May be you can give me some tests?

### how about "q(x) = a*x"?

Hi.

for example

Code: Select all

``````3
1
``````
or

q(x) = x
q(x) = 2 * x

I think that if your algorithm is correct,

you will get accepted

(Check for output format, too )
Sorry For My Poor English..

### output???

Can anybody give me correct output file for this input:

3
1 -7 15 -8
3
1 -7 15 -9
3
1
3
0 0 0 0 5

My AC solution outputs.
Output

Code: Select all

``````q(x): 1 -4 3
r = 1
q(x): 1 -4 3
r = 0
q(x):
r = 1
q(x): 0 0 0 0
r = 5``````

there maybe some residue spaces/endlines in the end of input.

### I got AC.

My mistake was very silly. I forgot that k may be negative
But now I got AC, and I very happy.
Thanks to everybody who tried to help me!

I find something interesting, when I implemented it, I actually have
q(x) : 0

if p(x) is constant and get WA.

So much for unnecessary steps

### 10719 Quotient Polynomial getting TLE

How on earth can i get TLE in 10719 ... any ideas ????

heres my code

#include<stdio.h>
#include<math.h>
#include<ctype.h>
#define MAXN 10020

long p[MAXN],q[MAXN],r;
char input[MAXN*12];

void swap(long &a,long &b)
{
long temp;
temp=a;
a=b;
b=temp;
}

{
long i,j,n;

gets(input);

n=0;

for(i=0;input;i++)
{
sscanf(&input,"%ld",&p[n++]);

do{
i++;
}while(input=='-' || isdigit(input));

if(input==0)
break;
}

--n;
for(i=0,j=n;i<=j;i++,j--)
swap(p,p[j]);

return n;
}

int main()
{
long i,n,k;

// freopen("in10719.txt","r",stdin);

while(scanf("%ld\n",&k)==1)
{

q[n]=0;

for(i=1;i<=n;i++)
{
q[n-i]=p[n-i+1]+k*q[n-i+1];
}

r=p[0]+k*q[0];

printf("q(x):");

for(i=n-1;i>=0;i--)
{
printf(" %ld",q);
}

printf("\nr = %ld\n\n",r);
}

return 0;
}

use only input as the first param.
but looking at it i think there may be some problem in input
parsing.
try to use strtok().

I'm not sure if this TLE is for input parsing. But I'm pretty much sure that if you use strtok(), you'll get TLE. I took input character by character in this problem.

Not quite..
.. I used strtok() and got it AC.

Then maybe you use strtok() in a more efficient way than me. During contest time, I got TLE on this problem for using strtok().

I use strtok() in the standard way, I think.

Code: Select all

``````#include<string.h>
#include<vector>

using namespace std;

int main() {
char *p;
int a;
char str[1000];
vector<int> V;
gets(str);
p = strtok(str, " ");
sscanf(p, "%d", &a);
V.push_back(a);
while(1) {
p = strtok(NULL, " ");
if( !p ) break;
sscanf(p, "%d", &a);
V.push_back(a);
}
}
``````
