CODE1 - Secret Code

no tags 

The Sarcophagus itself is locked by a secret numerical code. When somebody wants to open it, he must know the code and set it exactly on the top of the Sarcophagus. A very intricate mechanism then opens the cover. If an incorrect code is entered, the tickets inside would catch fire immediately and they would have been lost forever. The code (consisting of up to 100 integers) was hidden in the Alexandrian Library but unfortunately, as you probably know, the library burned down completely.

But an almost unknown archaeologist has obtained a copy of the code something during the 18th century. He was afraid that the code could get to the "wrong people"' so he has encoded the numbers in a very special way. He took a random complex number B that was greater (in absolute value) than any of the encoded numbers. Then he counted the numbers as the digits of the system with basis B. That means the sequence of numbers an, an-1, ..., a1, a0 was encoded as the number X = a0 + a1B + a2B2 + ...+ anBn.

Your goal is to decrypt the secret code, i.e. to express a given number X in the number system to the base B. In other words, given the numbers X and Byou are to determine the ``digit'' a0 through an.


The input consists of T test cases (equal to about 100000). The number of them (T) is given on the first line of the input file. Each test case consists of one single line containing four integer numbers Xr, Xi, Br, Bi (|Xr|,|Xi| <= 1000000, |Br|,|Bi| <= 16). These numbers indicate the real and complex components of numbers X and B, i.e. X = Xr + i.Xi, B = Br + i.Bi. B is the basis of the system (|B| > 1), X is the number you have to express.


Your program must output a single line for each test case. The line should contain the ``digits'' an, an-1, ..., a1, a0, separated by commas. The following conditions must be satisfied:

  • for all i in {0, 1, 2, ...n}: 0 <= ai < |B|
  • X = a0 + a1B + a2B2 + ...+ anBn
  • if n > 0 then an <> 0
  • n <= 100

If there are no numbers meeting these criteria, output the sentence "The code cannot be decrypted.". If there are more possibilities, print any of them.


Sample Input

-935 2475 -11 -15
1 0 -3 -2
93 16 3 2
191 -192 11 -12

Sample output:

The code cannot be decrypted.

It seems that the last line of the input data doesn't end with a '\n' but with a digit.
This costed me 10 WA ! Finally got AC using Python and calculation only with integers.

The key to this problem is trying to find out a recursive formula of the residual by moving the constant term from the right side to the left and then quotient both side with the 'complex base'. お大事に。

can anybody help me regarding the algorithm used in this program

sourav2706: 2015-10-28 15:51:10

its total mathematics

getting segmentation fault but not using any array or vector... any idea?

Note the constraint:
if n > 0 then an <> 0
it's possible n == 0
WA several times

you can store as sqrt(123-124)

it looks like algorithm :p

in every problem of spoj for int part of float no., simply x=int(x) does not accept

ha ha sqrt(-1).......:D
