please help me to ping out what is problem with my code that codechef compiler is giving WA… i think my code should work for all test cases even it is working for given test cases

Dear, I highly suggest that you copy and run this code at “Code, Compile and Run” Section of Practice. (Because it will run your code on codechef IDE)

Because I tried running your code, and I got this error-

Error: Could not find or load main class MARCHA2

I think java programs have to abide by some syntax or so (will edit and add link once I find it) and that’s why I got that error. If you can fix it, I can try running for test cases. :slight_smile:

EDIT- link1 Codechef Guidelines

EDIT- I found a tutorial for your Q incase you want to have a look Tutorial for Paying Up

EDIT2- Dear, I am getting new set of errors on running program,

Exception in thread "main" java.util.NoSuchElementException
	at java.util.Scanner.throwFor(Scanner.java:862)
	at java.util.Scanner.next(Scanner.java:1485)
	at java.util.Scanner.nextInt(Scanner.java:2117)
	at java.util.Scanner.nextInt(Scanner.java:2076)
	at MARCHA2.main(Main.java:23)

Try running it yourself.

before this package name was not commented… now i comment the packagename… may be that is causing problem… now u can try

Thanks dear, I will start testing :slight_smile: (BTW, did u try re-submitting soln. ? In case this error was giving you WA? )

EDIT- New set of errors-

Exception in thread “main” java.util.NoSuchElementException
at java.util.Scanner.throwFor(Scanner.java:862)
at java.util.Scanner.next(Scanner.java:1485)

I recommend using Buffered Reader to fix it. Try that.

i solved why my solution giving WA besides having right logics because “YES” And “NO” should be “Yes” and “No”… now submitted againg and solution acceted and right answer

Because codechef wants you to use buffered reader. Things vary from one online compiler to other. That’s why I requested for buffered reader dear :slight_smile:

And m glad you found out. Yes, you must be careful for the output format!! Many , MANY times it just makes you pull your hair out of frustration thinking “Where did my code went wrong in logic” while its just a simple typo. Glad you found it out! :slight_smile:

than dear, why codechef ide accepted my solution using Scanner, i havn’t used bufferReader

Lol, now even code compile run is accepting it XD

even now its not compile right for my solution… can send me ur screenshot!

There dear-

12

lol… okey now i got it. earlier we are not providing any custom input and trying to run our code… no compiler is able to provide us output without input… thanx bro… u helped me alot

Dear, when I ran it initially I WAS providing it input and it was actually not detecting it for some reason. It seems to be fixed now (created a new tab of IDE).

I am glad dear I was of help and that your problem is resolved. :slight_smile:
