### PROBLEM

You are given N Neurons. i^{th} neuron receives an input x_i gives an output y_i=w_i*x_i+b_i.
Also x_{i+1} = y_i. Given a range [L, R] as input to x_1, find for how many inputs the y_n was even and odd.

Constraints: n \le 10^5, 1\leq L \leq R\leq 10^5

### EXPLANATION

This problem is inspired by Neural Nets in machine learning.
Nowadays, everyone is talking about deep learning and Artificial Neural Nets (ANNs).
This problem used a very trivialized definition of Neural Nets.

You only need to know the parity of the output.
So you can take all transformations y_i=w_i*x_i+b_i and make it modulo 2.
The parity of y_i depends only on the parity of x_i.
Doing this repetitively will imply parity of y_n is only dependent on parity of x_1.
So just check parity of y_n when x_1=0 and parity when x_1=1.

Then check how many numbers in [L,R] has even parity (will correspond to x_1=0)
and how many have odd parity(will correspond to x_1=1)

Please someone help me to find the bug in my code because I keep getting “Wrong Answer” (WA)

import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
class spam2
{
public static void main() throws IOException
{
Scanner sc=new Scanner(System.in);

while(t>0)
{
StringTokenizer st=new StringTokenizer(l);
int n=0,minx=0,maxx=0,w=0,b=0;
while(st.hasMoreTokens())
{
n=Integer.parseInt(st.nextToken());
minx=Integer.parseInt(st.nextToken());
maxx=Integer.parseInt(st.nextToken());
}
int i=1,j=2,c1=0,c2=0,e=0,o=0;

while(n>0)
{
StringTokenizer str=new StringTokenizer(s);

while(str.hasMoreTokens())
{
w=Integer.parseInt(str.nextToken());
b=Integer.parseInt(str.nextToken());
}

i=w*i+b;
j=w*j+b;

if(i%2==0)
i=2;
else
i=1;

if(j%2==0)
j=2;
else
j=1;

n--;
}
if(minx%2==0 && maxx%2==0)
{
o=(maxx-minx)/2;
e=o+1;
}

else if(minx%2!=0 && maxx%2!=0)
{
e=(maxx-minx)/2;
o=e+1;
}

else
{
e=((maxx-minx)/2)+1;
o=e;
}
if(i%2==0)
c1=e;
else
c2=e;

if(j%2==0)
c1=c1+o;
else
c2=c2+o;

System.out.println(c1+" "+c2);
t--;

}
}
}

Please tell where is the error.
I have divided the entire list into two sublist- each of odd and of even numbers. If the first number of the list is a spammer all the members are and if not, none are. Where is the fault?
I got the wrong answer even with int.

#include
using namespace std;

long neuralNetEvaluation(long w, long b, long x)
{
return (w*x+b);
}

int main()
{
long t; cin>>t;
while(t>0)
{
long N, minX, maxX;
cin>>N>>minX>>maxX;
long spam={0};

long parameters[N];
long NN= N;
while(NN>0)
{
cin>>parameters[N-NN]>>parameters[N-NN];
NN--;
}
long first = (maxX-minX+1)/2;

long x=minX;
for(long i=0; i<N; i++)
{
x = neuralNetEvaluation(parameters[i], parameters[i], x);
}
if (x%2==0)
spam+=first;
else
spam+=first;

x= minX+1;
for(long i=0; i<N; i++)
{
x = neuralNetEvaluation(parameters[i], parameters[i], x);
}
if (x%2==0)
spam+=(maxX-minX+1-first);
else
spam+=(maxX-minX+1-first);
cout<< spam<<endl;
cout <<spam<<endl;
t--;


}

return 0;
}

Hii i don’t why am getting wrong error, my code is working fine for training input. Kindly help me.
Heres a link to my code

showing wrong answer but my code is correct giving same output
here is my code

#include
using namespace std;

int main(){
int t;
cin>>t;
while(t>0){
long n;
long long minx,maxx,w[n],b[n],ns=0,is=0,y;

cin>>n>>minx>>maxx;
for(int i=0;i<n;i++){
cin>>w[i];
cin>>b[i];
}
for(int i=minx;i<=maxx;i++){
y=i;
for(int j=0;j<n;j++){
y=(w[j]*y)+b[j];
}

if(y%2==0){
ns++;
}
else{
is++;
}
}
t--;
cout<<ns<<"\t"<<is<<endl;


}
return 0;

Any idea why the following timeout’s:

#include <stdio.h>

int main(void) {
int num_test, minX, maxX,num_NN, cnt_nospam, cnt_spam, result_1, result_2;
int w, b;
scanf("%d", &num_test);
while(num_test–){
cnt_nospam=cnt_spam=0;
scanf("%d%d%d",&num_NN,&minX, &maxX);
for(int i = 0; i<num_NN; i++){
scanf("%d%d",w+i,b+i);
}
while(minX<=maxX){
result_1 = minX;
result_2 = maxX;
for(int j =0; j<num_NN; j++){
result_1 = result_1w[j]+b[j];
result_2 = result_2
w[j]+b[j];
}

        if((result_1%2) == 0){
cnt_nospam++;
}
else{
cnt_spam++;
}
if(minX<maxX){
if((result_2%2) == 0){
cnt_nospam++;
}
else{
cnt_spam++;
}

}

minX++;
maxX--;
}

printf("%d %d \n",cnt_nospam,cnt_spam);
}
return 0;


}

@aam2kor: you need to take Y%2 each time you calculate as the large values will take more time to compute after each loop, the value of final output becomes larger than before and to ease the computation, we need to take %2 even time

why my code isn’t working pls. help me out!!!.

With this code the time it takes it 2.01 sec how can i optimize the code to bring it down
#include
#include<stdio.h>
using namespace std;

int main(){
int t;
scanf("%d",&t);
while(t–){
long long int n,minx,maxx;
scanf("%lld %lld %lld",&n,&minx,&maxx);
printf("\n");
vector<pair<long long int ,long long int>> v(n);
for(int i=0;i<n;i++){
long long int w=0,b=0;
scanf("%lld %lld",&w,&b);
printf("\n");
v.push_back(make_pair(w,b));
}
long int spam=0,nonspam=0;
for (long long int x=minx;x<=maxx;x++){
long long int sum=0;
for(auto it=v.begin();it<v.end();it++){
sum+=(it->first*x)+it->second;
}
if(sum%2==0)nonspam+=1;
else spam+=1;
}
printf("%ld %ld \n",nonspam,spam); }
}

Can someone help me out what case is failing for this code ?

PLS Help My code is giving WA

please tell me why this is giving me the wrong answer on submitting,where as in other compiler it is running smooth and giving me the correct output.
