CTRICK - Card Trick
The magician shuffles a small pack of cards, holds it face down and performs the following procedure:
- The top card is moved to the bottom of the pack. The new top card is dealt face up onto the table. It is the Ace of Spades.
- Two cards are moved one at a time from the top to the bottom. The next card is dealt face up onto the table. It is the Two of Spades.
- Three cards are moved one at a time…
- This goes on until the nth and last card turns out to be the n of Spades.
This impressive trick works if the magician knows how to arrange the cards beforehand (and knows how to give a false shuffle). Your program has to determine the initial order of the cards for a given number of cards, 1 ≤ n ≤ 20000.
On the first line of the input is a single positive integer, telling the number of test cases to follow. Each case consists of one line containing the integer n.
For each test case, output a line with the correct permutation of the values 1 to n, space separated. The first number showing the top card of the pack, etc…
Input: 2 4 5 Output: 2 1 4 3 3 1 4 5 2
not able to understand whats happening
Am i only who didn't understand whats happening actually. -_-
Did using queue in o(n^2) time AC
AC in 0.45 by n^2 logic!
If c++ list is used, use splice function for speeding up. (Removing first n element and appending it at the end). Iteration times out.
wonder how!! but got AC in 1.74 using n^2 solution..
You Beauty -- BIT...
My first proper BIT! :D
0.98s with a cyclic list. FAIL
