 0 The problem NUKES, in this problem the value of "a" can range up to 1000000000 but some programmers have used integer array to store the values of a,n and k and still got accepted. you can see it in this problem.

In gcc int is 4 bytes. Google it. (18 May '16, 19:44) debjitdj4★ Size of int is not strictly specified in the C standards. The standards guarantees only that char is at least 8 bits, int at least 16-bit, long at least 32-bit and long long at least 64-bit (or something equivalent to those capacities). The typical distribution is {8,32,64,64}, but I've run into issues before with an old judging system running 32-bit SPARC where it is {8,32,32,64}. I would be surprised though is you found any judge system where int is 16-bit. (26 Apr, 20:34) algmyr7★
