My code : LEDIV

Can’t figure out the error in my code. Please help.

Have you understood the problem clearly?

Have you read the editorial?

Your program is printing only one output for 2 test inputs.

Your code at IdeOne is wrong, isn’t it? T = 5, but there are 4 results in output…

Updated my code.

My algorithm is incorrect. It fails for n = 1 because the `for`

loop staarts from `j = 2`

and the inner loop terminates when a[i] % j != 0 and directly compares the value of `ans`

and `n`

. This will cause the output to be `-1`

for all sequences which contain an odd number.

@betlista Yes that code is incorrect and no I now the reason it fails, so I am trying some other method.

First observation, why are you using sort to get min, when sort is O(n log n) but array traversal is O(n)…

Such optimizations are not needed when algorithm is ok

Your code runs in O(min(a[i]) * n), so for 100.000 * 100.000 it requires 10^10 operations.

And what is the limit for Codechef judge?

I do not know for sure, but I guess something like 10^8 for second.
