# how to take 14 digit number in c----without using array?

14 digit number can be taken in a variable whose data type is long long int.

in fact using long long int you can take number upto 19 digits…
hope this helps you.

These would do.

``````long long var;
scanf("%lld", &var);
printf("%lld", var);``````

People, I’m almost 100% sure this was for Google Code Jam’s problem C large input 1… However, I’d say there’s no point in closing this thread now, since contest is almost over

solved that problem

Sadly, I only solved the C-small… However, I qualified to round 1… But I plan to attempt to read some people’s solutions and Google Contest Analysis to train as much as I can and learn as much as I can from this very interesting contest

@kuruma >> If you solved C-small, you could have solved large-1 as well. As upto 10^14 numbers fit into long long int. You could have stored all the values and just a single count. I was trying C-large-2 but damn internet!! Later I saw time expired! The whole labor with strings was messed up!

And similar thoughts here @kuruma, although qualified this year but I have to practice very very hard to clear all the rounds next year. So I wish you good luck. You wish me.

Ofc I wish you good luck too @bugkiller

Usually on round 1, questions are more theoretically challenging and less implementation challenging, so its gets harder as we go… Ofc in the round 3 and finals questions get theoretically hard and very implementation hard as well… So, it needs to be a work in progress… slowly but steadily, we can get better at it I noticed that this year… I used less wrong attempts, solved my 1st small input faster when compared to last year…

PS: Although extremely interesting from the implementation side, Problem A, was very easy and I already have a new problem ready based on that one, which will be a little harder

@kuruma >> LOL! Thanks for the leak, as I solved Problem A with very much ease, I will be really happy if you extend it to something nice and harder, I’d like to attempt it here in the contests.
