PREZ-Editorial

Can someone please help me understand how this is coming? I am not able to understand this

Exactly…I am getting 6 too…Throughout the whole contest, I was struggling with this…

Frequency array looks like this
25 → 18 (0 0 1 5 9 7 2 5)
18 → 9 (0 0 0 0 9 7 2 5)
9 → 8 (0 0 0 0 0 7 2 5)
8 → 5 (0 0 0 0 0 0 2 5)

Giving a total of 6 prefix zeroes

Finally an editorial in which i don’t have to scroll hundreds of lines in order to find the setter’s and the tester’s solution :laughing:

Can anyone help why it is giving WA on 2nd 3rd and 5th TC

Probably undefined behaviour due high = n + 1
so you would be accessing s[n]…
But it works fine when you access s[-1] …
So not sure why but it gives ACs after initializing high = n

hi anyone can you explain O(n) solution in more detail please if you have time i am finding really hard to understand may be in more simple way please :pray::pray::pray::pray::pray::pray:

Cout<<low
Will be final ans

I am passing all sample test cases but getting wa

Can someone help me to add link my solution here.
I’m facing problems.

I’m pretty sure 5 is the correct answer. Do you have any other test cases to help me debug? My solution (Solution: 57701597 | CodeChef) is passing only one test case when I submit.
