I seem to get 1773 for test case 6.
I also get 1773 for test case 6
I'll look into it a bit later on. In the meantime, that test case is deleted, so you can see if your solutions work for the rest of the test cases.
An interesting test case would have kill_every=1.
Am I the only one who finds the problem description really lacking? WTF does it mean "Because Prisoner 10 was counted during the first iteration,..." IMHO this is just blah and not a well-defined problem definition...
really wonderful thought!!! One of the best solution!
how does this work?
To paraphrase Arthur C Clarke: "Any sufficiently advanced Cody solution from Alfonso is indistinguishable from magic."
