It would be great if you could also share the approach for Crush 1 and Happy New Year

For crush, you had to check whether the digit sum is a prime or not. And since N is smaller than 10^9, you just had to compute less than 100 primes.

Oh thanks a lot for your help.

Assignment time : The three numbers which you entered were supposed to form the sides of a triangle. If the numbers entered could form a triangle, then cosine of the largest angle was the answer.

Really NaNDroid AnkurDroid : You had to output the number containing max number of set-bits
