By Akshansh_01, history, 2 months ago, Help me with this one!!! Whatever the logic I'm applying, time limit gets exceeded in the Test Case 4. This is my solution — https://codeforces.com/contest/1328/submission/167650940 I've tried without storing the values and directly printing it but the result was same — Time Limit Exceeded.

 » 2 months ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   It's pretty easy: we have an integer a and we want to find out which another minimal integer we must add to a such that (a + x) % b == 0. let's look at a % b — if it equals to 0, we must add nothing, so just output 0. Else, we just add (b — a % b) and we're done. 167658837

There's an easy $\mathcal O(1)$ solution for each pair of numbers in a given test case, which involves a slight bit of number theory. HintTry to think about what how much you have to add, relative to the remainder from dividing the original numbers.167658597
