# RECIPE - Editorial

EASY

### EXPLANATION

The problem here is divide all numbers by some constant so that the divisions have no remainder. We produce the smallest result by dividing by a number that is as large as possible, that is the greatest common divisor. The greatest common divisor can be computed efficiently by Euclid’s algorithm, but in this case it was fast enough to simply check all numbers from 1 to 1000 for divisibility.

wats wrong wid this??
http://www.codechef.com/viewsolution/1653380

note on my code: the gcd block is taken from wiki url i have shown above. and main block is my c++ code. i initialised arr of 50 ingredients and saved ingredients in it. and then i have taken cmmn - the greatest common divisor for ingredients in the array. if cmmn==1 then the array has no gcd, so i just printed out the arr itself. if cmmn is equal to ingredients of arr then yes==1, which means that all ingredients in the arr are same numbers, for ex 4 as given in the codechef sample output, if so i printed out 1 for every ingredient of arr. and if there exist gcd(here cmmn) other than 1 and ingredints itself, then print out arr[i]/cmmn. that is it.

NOTE: i still have difficulty in understanding the binary gcd algo. can anyone pls post the easier way to learn binary gcd algo. tnx

Can anyone tell me what is wrong with this code?
ideone

it’s not necessary that the no. with minimum value will always be gcd of all…

try this : 8 16 20

ur output: 8 16 20

correct answer : 2 4 5

thank you!

Can anyone please tell me :-
I have run my code several times in my laptop with several cases and does not encountered any problem.But after submitting it I got wrong answer… Please Check my code and please inform me about my mistake and the particular case … Waiting for your reply… http://www.codechef.com/viewsolution/7242074

@kislaya
Why did u write so lengthy code.

U can exploit the fact that GCD cannot be greater than the minimum element of array.

showing runtime error SIGFPE in this problem … please can someone tell my mistake in this code…

my code is giving correct answers but in uploadinong your compiler is saying wrong plasee check it or tell me the example which is giving wrong answer

@alphazeta0

Your code fails for this test case-

``````Input-
1
3 15 35 55

Output-

15 35 55

Expected Output-

3 7 11
``````

Add a check that if minimum element isn’t gcd, check if any factor of it is GCD of all. (Eg, here 15 isn’t GCD, but its factor 5 is GCD of all elements).

what’s wrong with my code?it’s running correctly on my compiler but giving prompt of wrong answer here.plz check .

I solved this code in another way but still it is failing. anyone what is the case when it got failed.?

Why i am getting WA(wrong answer) ??

I am getting right answers for all the TEST cases, incuding (8,16,20) ans=(2,4,5).Given in comment.
Can anyone help me.
