I've been reading this for awhile now, but I just can't figure the flow and idea of this code.

Any explanation would be very helpful, thank you

try this:

It stopped the error but it did not align the elements. Thank you

Here is what I am trying

Here is my error

What I am trying do is align all the elements regardless of the place value.

I'm still not able to align the elements.

Here is what I am doing

If the answer to equation exceeds place value compare to the element on its side, it messes up the pattern.
When I tried to use %f it gave me an error.

I managed it

Did you use printf?

The values are in double. How can attain that format?
Thak you very much.
LOL I can't make the column straight But what I am trying to do is align all the elements.

variable x = input()
variable result = calculation(x)
print result
x = result
end loop

You made it work I owe you my life.

Thank very much.

equation = x + 2

x = 3

x = 5


and so on

you meant like this?

Wouter Oet wrote:I'm not sure what your problem is. Is it that it only asks for input once? In that case that is because you're only asking for input once, it is not in the for loop. If it's regarding the calculation then you need to provide us with more information.

By the way: look at the difference between System.out.print and System.out.printf.

Yep it only asks for one input. The answer for the first input should be the the next value to substituted.

So basically this program will stop at 15 iterations. My problem is I am not able to substitute the value of the answer to the equation.

Here is the code

The output should be

But the one I am getting is

I am really getting frustrated, I can't figure it out. Any help would be very helpful.

Interesting homework problem ...

Basically, this is an sort problem, except the sorting is done for you. Normally, the initial unordered list is provided, and you have to sort it -- using an algorithm that moves the elements.

Here, the problem is... you don't know the original unordered list, but you do know the moves that it takes to sort them. So, given an unordered (and unmarked) list, and the moves it takes to sort them, find out the ordering of the original list.


Thanks, but I still don't get it

I have read it more than 100+, but I still can't figure it out.
The problem is confusing and I don't get what it wants me to do.

In Byteland it is always the military officer's main worry to order his soldiers on parade correctly.
Luckily, ordering soldiers is not really such a problem. If a platoon consists of n men, all of them have different rank (from 1 - lowest to n - highest)
and on parade they should be lined up from left to right in increasing order of rank.

Sounds simple, doesn't it? Well, Sgt Johnny thought the same, until one day he was faced with a new command.
He soon discovered that his elite commandos preferred to do the fighting, and leave the thinking to their superiors.
So, when at the first rollcall the soldiers lined up in fairly random order it was not because of their lack of discipline, but simply
because they couldn't work out how to form a line in correct order of ranks. Sgt Johnny was not at all amused, particularly as
he soon found that none of the soldiers even remembered his own rank. Over the years of service every soldier had only
learned which of the other soldiers were his superiors. But Sgt Johnny was not a man to give up easily when faced with a
true military challenge. After a moment's thought a solution of brilliant simplicity struck him and he issued the following
order: "men, starting from the left, one by one, do: (step forward; go left until there is no superior to the left of you; get back in line).".
This did indeed get the men sorted in a few minutes. The problem was solved... for the time being.

The next day, the soldiers came in exactly the same order as the day before, and had to be rearranged using the same method.
History repeated. After some weeks, Sgt Johnny managed to force each of his soldiers to remember how many men he passed
when going left, and thus make the sorting process even faster.

If you know how many positions each man has to walk to the left, can you try to find out what order of ranks the soldiers initially line up in?

The first line of input contains an integer t<=50, the number of test cases. It is followed by t test cases, each consisting of 2 lines.
The first line contains a single integer n (1<=n<=200000). The second line contains n space separated integers wi, denoting how far
the i-th soldier in line must walk to the left when applying Sgt Johnny's algorithm.

For each test case, output a single line consisting of n space separated integers - the ranks of the soldiers, given from left to right
in their initial arrangement.

0 1 0
0 1 2 0 1

2 1 3
3 2 1 5 4

Any explanations would be very helpful.

This is the whole program. I posted everything.

I think the problem is line number 8:

A big noob here, can't understand what you are trying to explain.

The program is an Address Book. and I cant get rid of the "cannot find symbol class" error, what should I do?

here is the code:

OK here is the problem my friend gave:

Java Hello world that is all
