 codeforces Fence Problem solution div 2-

This Problem is totally based on a property of quadrilateral before going to solution it is recommended that try this problem yourself first.

Problem Statement-

A. Fence
time limit per test
1 second
memory limit per test
256 megabytes
standard input
standard output

Yura is tasked to build a closed fence in shape of an arbitrary non-degenerate simple quadrilateral. He's already got three straight fence segments with known lengths ab, and c. Now he needs to find out some possible integer length d of the fourth straight fence segment so that he can build the fence using these four segments. In other words, the fence should have a quadrilateral shape with side lengths equal to abc, and d. Help Yura, find any possible length of the fourth side.

A non-degenerate simple quadrilateral is such a quadrilateral that no three of its corners lie on the same line, and it does not cross itself.


The first line contains a single integer t — the number of test cases (1t1000). The next t lines describe the test cases.

Each line contains three integers ab, and c — the lengths of the three fence segments (1a,b,c109).


For each test case print a single integer d — the length of the fourth fence segment that is suitable for building the fence. If there are multiple answers, print any. We can show that an answer always exists.

12 34 56

We can build a quadrilateral with sides 1234.

We can build a quadrilateral with sides 12345642.

Solution -

This Problem required a prerequisite about the property of a quadrilateral that is if you are given a three side of a quadrilateral let say a,b,c then it is sure that 4th side of the quadrilateral is smaller then a+b+c.

and this should hold true for all side of the quadrilateral. means
  • a<b+c+d
  • b<a+c+d
  • c<a+b+d
  • d<a+b+c
so by using this property we can print (a+b+c-1) as our ans because there can be multiple ans of this question and we have to print any one of them.
You can print another answer too which satisfy the above 4 conditions.

Vaccine Distribution Codechef December Long challenge solution 2020

 Vaccine Distribution  Codechef December Long challenge solution 2020- This Problem vaccine distribution is taken from December long challenge 2020. lets read problem statement. Problem statement- Finally, a COVID vaccine is out on the market and the Chefland government has asked you to form a plan to distribute it to the public as soon as possible. There are a total of  N N  people with ages  a 1 , a 2 , … , a N a 1 , a 2 , … , a N . There is only one hospital where vaccination is done and it is only possible to vaccinate up to  D D  people per day. Anyone whose age is  ≥ 80 ≥ 80  or  ≤ 9 ≤ 9  is considered to be  at risk . On each day, you may not vaccinate both a person who is at risk and a person who is not at risk. Find the smallest number of days needed to vaccinate everyone. Input The first line of the input contains a single integer  T T  denoting the number of test cases. The description of  T T  test cases follows. The first line of each test case contains two space-separ

Merge Two sorted array Without Extra Space

Problem statement-  Given two sorted arrays arr1[] and arr2[] of sizes N and M in non-decreasing order. Merge them in sorted order without using any extra space. Modify arr1 so that it contains the first N elements and modify arr2 so that it contains the last M elements.    Example 1: Input:  N = 4, arr1[] = [1 3 5 7]  M = 5, arr2[] = [0 2 6 8 9] Output:  arr1[] = [0 1 2 3] arr2[] = [5 6 7 8 9] Explanation: After merging the two  non-decreasing arrays, we get,  0 1 2 3 5 6 7 8 9.   Example 2: Input:  N = 2, arr1[] = [10, 12]  M = 3, arr2[] = [5 18 20] Output:  arr1[] = [5 10] arr2[] = [12 18 20] Explanation: After merging two sorted arrays  we get 5 10 12 18 20. Your Task: You don't need to read input or print anything. You only need to complete the function merge() that takes arr1, arr2, N and M as input parameters and modifies them in-place so that they look like the sorted merged array when concatenated. Expected Time Complexity:  O((n+m) log(n+m)) Expected Auxilliary Space: O(1
