•  » » » 19 months ago, # ^ |   +3 You need to take care of the precision.
•  » » » » 19 months ago, # ^ |   0 It is all integer, and at the end I do division by 2. What can be wrong with precision there?

•  » » » 19 months ago, # ^ |   0 I really am not the correct guy to explain but I could provide my submission here
•  » » » 19 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 3 →   +4 cout doesn't work well with big float numbers if you don't use setprecision.For example, if d is 87654321. cout << d / 2 << endl; // Prints 4.38272e+07 cout << setprecision(10) << d / 2 << endl; // Prints 43827160.5 As you can see, outputs are very different.

 » 19 months ago, # |   0 What is the intended solution for F? My solution https://atcoder.jp/contests/abc154/submissions/10004590 passed however, took 1977 ms, at which point it's just luck that it passed within the 2s time limit. So clearly either I implemented this horribly bad, or it was not the intended solution.I simplified $\sum_{i=r1}^{r2}\sum_{j=c1}^{c2}{{i+j}\choose{j}}$ to $\sum_{j=c1}^{c2}{{r2+j+1}\choose{j+1}}-{{r1+j}\choose{j+1}}$ and then simply evaluted.
•  » » 19 months ago, # ^ |   +3 You can do the same simplification again to eliminate the remaining summation, so you end up with a completely closed form that looks like $A-B-C+D$ (where $A$, $B$, $C$, $D$ are each a single binomial coefficient). my codepublic void solve(int testNumber, InputReader in, PrintWriter out) { int r1 = in.nextInt() - 1, c1 = in.nextInt() - 1; int r2 = in.nextInt(), c2 = in.nextInt(); long answer = mod.subtract(mod.add(f(r2, c2), f(r1, c1)), mod.add(f(r2, c1), f(r1, c2))); out.println(answer); } private long f(int x, int y) { return mod.subtract(mod.ncr(x + y + 2, y + 1), 1); } By the way, instead of worrying about the lower bounds, since they make it a little messier, I solved the problem for the special case of $(r_1, c_1) = (0, 0)$ and then used the fact that you can use principle of inclusion-exclusion to express an arbitrary rectangle as the sum/difference of four rectangles starting at $(0, 0)$. (Very similar to how people use [a, b) = [0, b) - [0, a) all the time when there's only one dimension.)Doing it this way makes the final answer a lot easier to come to and code up bug-free, I think.
•  » » 19 months ago, # ^ |   +3 You can precompute the inverses of factorials in $O(N)$ as well: https://atcoder.jp/contests/abc154/submissions/10024715. Then you can evaluate a single binomial in constant time instead of $O(\log \mathrm{MOD})$, and here the code runs roughly 10x quicker.

please explain where i m wrong..
