setter’s solution is same as yours.


#22

@jagreetdg xDDDD

@yadnesh_viper Yeah… just saw it


#23

Well, If I write basic differentiation instead of differentiation, will that be better? :stuck_out_tongue: @jagreetdg


#24

You have forgotten to take mod in your last loop.


#25

Nice…


#26

@sikander_nsit thanks. can’t believe myself :stuck_out_tongue:


#27

You took wrong modulo. Also, distinct function is not needed.

Here’s ur corrected solution.

Thanks a lot !


#29

Differentiation is Differentiation, whether its basic or advanced, since calculus wasn’t my cup of tea ever, I’d get scared with even the slightest hint of it :stuck_out_tongue:


#30

I did not add the remaining 6 to last element, but to element so that that element becomes a[k-1]+1.

After getting 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9, My solution add 6 to 4, getting sequence 2 3 10 5 6 7 8 9

which will get the required product.


#31

Thank you!


#32

Might have worked if used Logarithms, but here, we need the product, not summation.

Plus, Time complexity will be an issue in this solution.


#33

Differentiation is just required for proof of solution.

It is not required to solve the problem if you get the intuition of solution.


#34

WOW !!!
I wonder how do people like you even think of using basic algorithms like binary search. I mean, even though there was no clue that anything needs to be searched, you applied it. Is this result of just lots of practice ???


#35

Binary Search is my favorite :slight_smile:
It’s like lifeline XD
Use it anywhere you want to…
It’s from practice…
Check all the algorithms you know for a particular question… if it can be applied or not…


#37

Codeforces ? smit_mandavia :slight_smile:


#38

Bro,you should write a few blogs on cp-topics so newbies like me and Harsh can get help :slight_smile:
+you explain stuff very nicely, I’ve seen that at many places :slight_smile: :slight_smile:


#39

You and beginner ? That was a nice joke !! XD


#40

Nope!!!
These rating-stuff is not always accurate… don’t trust those 5-stars, I know that I’m a noob from inside, and 5-star from outside :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ve started in August…After 3 months, it will be 1 year since I started, then I can call myself, intermediate :slight_smile:


#41

Same here then !! I am also noob from inside :stuck_out_tongue:
