L and R are integers 1 ? L ? R ? 10^18, In this case what datatype we can use??
use long long int.
If you’re using scanf/printf for input/output use “%lld” as the control string.
lld limit will exceed 10^18
Excuse me? You mean that LLD_MAX >= 10^18, right?
It depends entirely upon the context in which the problem is given.
For example,if the input is very large(10^10000)then you cant take input as integers or long int or long long int(in case of C++) because overflow will occur…In such situation you have to take input as an array of characters…and (if required later on) perform the required manipulation/operation…
In most of the questions…basically input depends upon how you think about the approach/algorithm to a particular problem.
Also check out the following discussion:
It will be more helpful.
Store the numerical inputs(L and R) as a character array and process it!!
Why? long in Java and long long in C/C++ is ok for those values…
if it exceeds 10^19?
the question is: “L, R <= 10^18”…
Sry for my mistake
Whats up with the down votes!!:o Am I wrong?
No you are correct. Added my +1
