POINTS Why am I getting a wrong answer?

Hello,
I was stuck at the points problem (link given)


My solution link is

I have tried all possible test-cases and the program works correctly. Please tell me where I am going wrong. Also it would be very helpful if you could just post one or two test cases where my code fails and I would try to figure out on my own what went wrong.
Thanks a lot

in your main function, there are printf("\n") that shouldn’t probably be here. :slight_smile:

Result of a very quick scan:

It seems that you need to re-initialise hash between test cases.

My quick scan was a bit too quick. I missed the init. Sorry about that.

I found a test case for which your program produces an incorrect answer:

1

4

1 1

1 2

1 3

1 4

I think it should result in 3.00, but your program prints 5.00

Your program may also crash when there are (e.g.) 50000 points. You can generate a test case like that yourself…

Good luck.
