Unsuccessful Hacking Attempt

Revision en5, by rachitiitr, 2016-06-01 22:12:28

Problem: http://codeforces.com/contest/677/problem/B
The user is doing rem = a[i];
while(rem) {if (rem >= k) rem -= k; }
See the image for his code:

If I set k = 1, and rem = 10^9 Clearly it will timeout, but I was given an unsuccessful hacking attempt. Why?

Test case I gave:
1 1000000000 1
1000000000
Result-> Unsuccessful

I thought compiler would be doing some optimizations. So turned k to 2. Still it gave unsuccessful hacking attempt. IInd Test case I gave:
1 1000000000 2
1000000000
Result-> Unsuccessful

UPD -> His code got TLE after the final system checks. -_- http://codeforces.com/contest/677/submission/18191327

This is a great way to suffer a loss of 200 points.
