NSTEPS - Number Steps

Starting from point (0,0) on a plane, we have written all non-negative integers 0, 1, 2,... as shown in the figure. For example, 1, 2, and 3 has been written at points (1,1), (2,0), and (3, 1) respectively and this pattern has continued.



You are to write a program that reads the coordinates of a point (x, y), and writes the number (if any) that has been written at that point. (x, y) coordinates in the input are in the range 0...10000.



The first line of the input is N, the number of test cases for this problem. In each of the N following lines, there is x, and y representing the coordinates (x, y) of a point.



For each point in the input, write the number written at that point or write No Number if there is none.

AC in one go!
Observation of the pattern leads the way to the solution

AC in one go. Its just two line equations.

AC in one!

Accepted in one GO!! (for those who don't know the meaning of AC in 1 GO ;b)
I am a beginner in competitive programming and this is my first problem to get accepted in one go!!
Just boosted my confidence.....Merely the game of coordinates u have to play n rest is only 4 lines of code!!
believe me :)

The number of test cases seems to be about 11000.

i thought it stopped at 12 but it should continue..cost me WA

damn easy !! :)

AC in One Go!! Just Played with The co-ordinates... game of Even and Odds.
