A simple way to solve Round368 Div.2 Problem C

Revision en3, by PengsenMao, 2016-08-21 12:09:23

First, suppose n is the shortest side of the triangle, m, k are other two sides. According to Pythagorean Theorem, we know n2 + m2 = k2

just do a change k2 - m2 = n2

futherly (k + m)(k - m) = n2

as we know, n2 × 1 = n2 so we can suppose that k + m = n2, k - m = 1 [because we have SPJ]

easily, we get because the side is a interger, so this solution can only be used when n is a odd.

So how to deal with even? we find that if (k-m) is odd, the solution is suitable for odd. On the other hand, we guess that if(k-m) is even, the solution is suitable for even.

just as this, so, we get this is an O(1) algorithm.

So if you want to see more clearly, you can see the formual on this page. if you have some questions, i am willing to help you.:) [my english is not very good, so please pass some grammer fault.:P] #### History
