Decrease string

#include<stdio.h>

int main()
{
    unsigned int t,inp;
    scanf("%u",&t);
    while(t--)
    {
        unsigned int temp;
        scanf("%u",&inp);
        temp = inp?1+(inp/26):0;
        inp=inp+temp;
        while(inp--)
        {

            printf("%c",'a'+(inp%26));

        }
        printf("\n");
    }

    return 0;
}

What’s wrong with my code ?
Please help me.

  1. This code seems to be incorrect

temp = inp?1+(inp/26):0;

inp=inp+temp;

try this instead, see if this works

int temp1=inp;

temp = (inp/25)?(inp/25):0;

inp=inp+temp;

temp=(temp1%25)?1:0;

inp=inp+temp;

  1. also using int is enough, there is no need for unsigned int

if still there is wrong answer, let me know.

what’s the difference between your code and mine ?
Please tell me, Cause both give the same answers I think.

Your logic is correct. Thank you.
But could you specify why my logic is wrong ?

no they do not give the same answer
try these test cases
t=5
k=53 52 51 50 49

I understood myself. Thank you

Yep. I tested.

we are dividing by 25 because a string with 25 positions(as stated in the problem) can be represented by a string of 26 characters.
Suppose,
if 1<=k<=25 we need k+1 characters

if 25<k<=50 we need k+(1)+(1)( +1 for first 25 (k/25=1)and other +1 for remaining characters as k%25!=0)

if 50<k<=75 we need k+(1+1)+(1)( +1 for first 25, +1 for next 25, and the last +1 for the reamaining characters as k%25!=0)

if k=50 we need k+(1+1)+(0)(+1 for first 25, +1 for next 25, last +0 as there are no remaining position we need to represent as k%25=0 )
