FAVDICE - Favorite Dice

no tags 

BuggyD loves to carry his favorite die around. Perhaps you wonder why it's his favorite? Well, his die is magical and can be transformed into an N-sided unbiased die with the push of a button. Now BuggyD wants to learn more about his die, so he raises a question:

What is the expected number of throws of his die while it has N sides so that each number is rolled at least once?


The first line of the input contains an integer t, the number of test cases. t test cases follow.

Each test case consists of a single line containing a single integer N (1 <= N <= 1000) - the number of sides on BuggyD's die.


For each test case, print one line containing the expected number of times BuggyD needs to throw his N-sided die so that each number appears at least once. The expected number must be accurate to 2 decimal digits.

Maths has never been my thing. Took some time to understand the Coupon Collector problem.
Simple code but good maths concept.

Mathematics always screw me...
learned something new...
HINT : expected number of trials until success = 1/p given p is the probability of success in every trial.

Is there any new approach?
