Thomas Bischoff submitted a Comment to Problem 42818. center of mass

Hi Katherine and William,
thank you very much for your advice. When I generated the test suite I made a stupid mistake (I divided by n which is totally wrong!). Sorry for that. I hope that its correct now.

Thomas Bischoff submitted a Comment to Problem 42801. means

Hello Rathin Joshi.
I checked numbers and I think they are correct. The geometric mean should be (10!)^(1/10) and the harmonic mean should be 10/10th harmonic number.

Jan Orwat submitted a Comment to Solution 910588

Note that "c(c==-d) = d" means that c and d must be same size or d is scalar. Moreover if d is not a scalar, then all "c==-d" must be true. This code seems to work in rare case, when one value is negative real number, and the rest are positive real numbers, but I have not tested it.

The example does not match the solutions. First puzzle(30,3) has [0 1 1 0 ...] as next to last row with an expected [0 1 0]. The example shows this as [1 1 0]

I keep receiving 'Matrix dimensions must agree' when using c(c==-d)... it seems to work fine in matlab, but not on here. Any ideas?

the problem is to see if a number is the square of another number in the vector. Although 25 is a perfect square, 5 is not included in the vector

Tim submitted a Comment to Problem 42891. Differential equation and events

It looks like [y;y']=[a,b] would mean y(0)=a and y'(0)=b, but a first order differential equation should have one initial condition y(t0)=y0.

Yes, I was looking for something cody-friendly :). I forgot it works in this form iff gcd(n(1),n(2))==1.

Peng Liu submitted a Comment to Solution 906647

It is a good idea to apply an upper bound! It seems that the upBound becomes an underestimate of the upper bound for test case 2.

Test 2 in the test suite is wrong!

Test 5 and 6 change the variable and appear to be incorrect when denoting which person has more money. Ex. b = 2 b/c .26 is more than .21, but the answer shows c = 1

It contains the line "if x == 704 | x == 681319 | x==681320", so you are not missing anything deep.

Jan Orwat submitted a Comment to Solution 904650

suprisingly, this code doesn't work in previous versions of MATLAB. Looks like things under the mask of regexprep changed. Previous policy was [match1][match2]...[matchN][replace1][replace2]...[replaceN] while now it's more like [match1][replace1]...[matchN][replaceN]

Thanks for your clarification, Jan. In this case, it is necessary that the assumption is stated in the problem, or the answer should stick to the example shown in the description.

Jan Orwat submitted a Comment to Problem 42877. Cellular Automaton | Rule X

Peng is right. It looks like we are supposed to ignore leftmost and rightmost columns due to the fact those cells have access to only two cells above, but it is not mentioned in the description as well as shown example stands in opposite to that assumption.

on 6 Jun 2016 at 6:09

Peng Liu submitted a Comment to Problem 42877. Cellular Automaton | Rule X

It seems that the reference answer in the test suite is incorrect. Taking test case 1 (rule 30) as an example, the first and last elements in the 4th row should be 1, according to the figure you posted for rule 30 in your problem description.

James submitted a Comment to Solution 901588

Should not need the '=' in the 'if j<=t' statement to get the "correct" answer, but that makes the code match the solution in the test suite.
