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.

no number should be printed exactly as specified...threw WA at me just for lower case!

why wa always;

All that is needed is 2 If condition . Took 5 + 5 minutes

easiest problem>>>>>>>>
brute force approach works easily.....

saurabh: 2013-02-03 11:16:42

just see the pattern .........
HInt:-see even and odd number

sachinmenezes : Print every time in a new line

i thought da pattern really continued i.e. at (4,0) there is a 4 n so on... damn wrong answer :O

works fine at home but when submiting says wrong answer

brute force exceeds the time limit. Have to go by some other way :(
