UVa 10616 – Divisible Group Sums


Problem Link : https://uva.onlinejudge.org/index.php?option=com_onlinejudge&Itemid=8&category=24&page=show_problem&problem=1557

Solution Idea:

This is a knapsack problem where the given numbers are objects. we have to count how many set is there of size m whose sum is divisible by d.

Now here we have a three state dp. where idx indicates the current index of objects, cnt indicates how many objects we have taken till now and we can’t take more than m element and this is a base case. and 3rd parameter is sum, which indicates the sum of the objects we have taken till now.

Now the sum can be very large and we can’t store the original sum in our dp array because we can’t declare such large array. So we can store the (sum%d) in the array because (sum%d) < 20  so we can easily store that. so in every step we have two call one is by taking current object and another is without taking that object. and the base case is when we have taken m elements then the sum value is either 0 or not. if it is a zero then we can say that it is divisible by d.

Now the most tricky part in this problem is the numbers can be negative and we have to consider how to mod the negative numbers. Lets see a example-

-12 % 7 = ??

If we calculate through computer or calculator the output will be -5. but is this correct??

Normally a%b = (a-x)

Where x is the greatest element which is divisible by b and which is less than or equal to a.

So we can say that x%b==0 and x<=a.

Now lets find the number x for -12 . we can see that -14 is the greatest element which is divisible by 7 and which is less than or equal to -12.

So the correct ans for -12%7 = (-12-(-14))= -12+14=2 😛

We can calculate the modulus result easily in this way.

if the operation is a%b and a<0. then the correct modulus value will be (a%b)+b.

-12%7= (-12%7)+7=-5+7=2 😀

So in this problem we have to consider the modulus of negative numbers.

Editorial for this problem :

Given a number N, find the sum of all products x*y such that N/x = y (Integer Division).

The simplest brute force solution involves iterating over all possible values of x and finding the corresponding value of y, and updating the running sum by adding x * y.

Unfortunately, this does not pass as the overall time complexity is O(T * N).

The Pattern:
If you tried to simulate the brute-force, you might observe the intriguing pattern of finding a lot of 1’s (approx N / 2) at the end.
The trick is to notice that many numbers, not only 1, are going to be repeated.
Let us consider an example of N = 10:

x = 1, y = 10
x = 2, y = 5
x = 3, y = 3
x = 4, y = 2
x = 5, y = 2
x = 6, y = 1
x = 7, y = 1
x = 8, y = 1
x = 9, y = 1
x = 10, y = 1

Observation 1: Note that not only 1, but 2 is also repeated. Rather, on simulating even bigger integers, you must notice that no more than O(sqrt(N)) distinct integers will ever occur.

Observation 2: All the repetitions will always to occuring together in a sequence such that they form an interval.

Now, we are getting closer to the solution, we can create chunks for each value of y and break our sum operation as follows:

10 * 1 + 5 * 2 + 3 * 3 + 2 * (4 + 5) + 1 * (6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10)

So, for each value y, if we find the lowest value of x (say, lo) and highest value of x(say, hi), we can find the entire summation in O(sqrt(N)).

I’d recommend you to go back to the problem and try to solve it with this much information only.

So as to complete the solution, we must find the way to compute values of lo and hi, for y = 1, lo = 6 and hi = 10
for y = 2, lo = 4 and hi = 5
for y = 3, lo = 3 and hi = 3

The other crucial observation is to notice that each pair of values (x,y) must have at least one value in [1, sqrt(N)].

Thus, we need not process the values of y any furthur..!!

But, aren’t we missing out on the pairs (1, 10) and (2, 5) ?

Well, these are exactly the pairs that have x * y = N, so we can compute them on-the-fly when y = 1 and y = 2. You might need to pay some attention while implementating, so as to avoid counting sqrt(N) twice and also to handle MOD correctly!!
