# Can anyone kindly explain the logic behind this solution???

 0 Okay so I was solving this October cook off question: http://www.codechef.com/COOK39/problems/PPNUM I used simple logic. Like straight forward logic. But I got the much expected TLE. My solution is here: http://www.codechef.com/viewsolution/2866338 (dont even bother reading it's not worth it... ) So while going through the solutions I found this guy's answer: http://www.codechef.com/viewsolution/2866246 I have no idea what on earth has he done! He has used God knows what algorithm!! Can anybody be a lamb and explain what he has done?? I have been trying to figure it out since forever...
