AnswersGiven a

`struct drop{ float x_cordinate; float radius; }`

Return the number of calls that the function Drop() that returns a drop object, needs to be called so that the interval [0, 1) is covered. For each drop object the range covered are values on a line considering x_cordinate as center and radius as the length added on both sides of the x_cordinate on that line?

`int numCalls(const function<drop> Drop){ drop firstDrop = Drop(); // Code from here }`

For example, if the first Drop() call returns drop object drop.location as 0.5 (considering points on a 1d axis) and drop.radius as 0.2, then the interval covered is [0.3, 0.7). So how many calls need to be made to ensure the interval [0, 1) is covered. The location and radius can map to any real value.

AnswersLet's assume that we have a binary classification system that classifies sets of samples, the rules for the classification are:

- camilito200009 November 07, 2017 in United States

The set is 'GOOD' if ALL the samples are 'GOOD'

The set is 'BAD' if ANY sample in the set is 'BAD'

Based on this we receive an input that contains multiple lines, where each line represents the classification of a set of samples. The format of each line is

class,sample_id_1,sample_id_2,...,sample_id_n

where class will either be GOOD or BAD. The sample IDs represent the samples contained in the classified set.

Now, for generating the output response we have to consider three cases:

If a unique mapping of samples-to-class exists, we output the corresponding mapping (sorted by the samples IDs)

If no consistent sample-to-class is possible, we output the answer NO CONSISTENT

If more than one mapping would be consistent, we output the answer MULTIPLE MAPPING.

To better illustrate the problem, following there are 4 examples

Sample Input

GOOD,10,11

GOOD,11,12

GOOD,10,12

Sample Output

10,GOOD

11,GOOD

12,GOOD

Sample Input

GOOD,10,11

BAD,11,12

Sample Output

10,GOOD

11,GOOD

12,BAD

Sample Input

GOOD,10,11

BAD,11,12

GOOD,11,13

GOOD,12,13

Sample Output

NO CONSISTENT

Sample Input

BAD,10,11

BAD,11,12

Sample Output

MULTIPLE MAPPING

If someone knows how to solve the problem, even if it's just pseudocode I'd really appreciate it| Report Duplicate | Flag | PURGE

AnswersYou are a game developer working on a game that randomly generates levels. A level is an undirected graph of rooms, each connected by doors. The player starts in one room, and there is a treasure in another room. Some doors are locked, and each lock is opened by a unique key. A room may contain one of those unique keys, or the treasure, or nothing.

- robert October 24, 2017 in United States

Implement a representation for a level and write code that, given a level and starting room, returns true if the treasure can be reached by the player—likely requiring them to find certain other keys first—or false if there is no solution.| Report Duplicate | Flag | PURGE

AnswersYou are given a positive integer number and you have to return a boolean telling whether the input number is a tidy number or not. A tidy number is a number whose digits are in non-decreasing order. For example, 1234 is a tidy number, 122334 is also a tidy number but 143567 is not a tidy number.

AnswersYou have a matrix that is sorted as such: For each value, every index to its right and below it must be larger than the current space's value. Likewise, all entries to its left and above it must be smaller than the current value. How would you go about searching this matrix for a specific number, given its sorted nature?

Question: You have a group of pigs and buckets of food for said pigs. There are 1,000 buckets of food, and exactly 1 of them is poisoned. Your goal is to determine, by the end of 1 hour, which bucket is poisoned.

The poison takes 30 minutes to kill a pig, and you'd like to kill as few pigs as possible. The number of pigs you can test is limitless, and you can assign a number to each bucket and each pig so that you know exactly which pig ate from which bucket(s). You determine which buckets to feed to which pigs, but you have no timer and no way to guesstimate the time. What is the minimum number of pigs you need to use to solve the problem?| Report Duplicate | Flag | PURGE

AnswersStanford has to select a team of dodgeball players from its class of 2013. There are n students in the class and each student is identified by his/her student ID, which is between 1 and n. The coach has to select K players out of these n students for his team. But there is a twist, if among the K dodgeball players, a player's ID number evenly divides another player's ID number, then there is a high chance of them getting into a fight. The coach will do his best to select the K players so that no pair of players among them will want to fight one another. But if the game turns out to be very popular, this becomes impossible. Complete the function dodgeBall to return the minimum size of K at which it becomes impossible to choose a dodgeball team that has no fighting?

- vick4523zf March 22, 2016 in United States

Input Format:

One line of text, containing the size of the class of 2013, n

Constraints:

1 <= n <= 5,000,000,000

n is guaranteed to be an even number

Output Format:

The minimum size of K that guarantees the existence of 2 players who fight with each other in any K-sized subset of the class.

Sample Input:

4

Sample Output:

3

Explanation:

If the team = {1,2,3}: 1&2 or 1&3 can fight with each other

If the team = {1,3,4}: 1&3 or 1&4 can fight with each other

If the team = {2,3,4}: 2&4 can fight with each other

If K=2, then the teams {3,4} or {2,3} will have no fights. So 3 is the smallest value of K for which any K-sized team, must include a fighting pair.

Sample Input:

2

Sample Output:

2

The team = {1,2}: 1&2 can fight with each other| Report Duplicate | Flag | PURGE
