Canadian Computing Competition: 2010 Stage 1, Junior #1

Natalie is learning to count on her fingers. When her Daddy tells her a number n (1 \le n \le 10), she asks "What is n, Daddy?", by which she means "How many fingers should I hold up on each hand so that the total is n?"

To make matters simple, her Daddy gives her the correct finger representation according to the following rules:

  • the number may be represented on one or two hands;
  • if the number is represented on two hands, the larger number is given first.

For example, if Natalie asks "What is 4, Daddy?", her Dad may reply:

  • 4 is 4.
  • 4 is 3 and 1.
  • 4 is 2 and 2.

Your job is to make sure that Natalie's Daddy gives the correct number of answers.

Input Specification

The input will be a single integer i such that 1 \le i \le 10.

Output Specification

The output is the number of ways of producing that number on two hands, subject to the rules outlined above.

Sample Input

4

Output for Sample Input

3

    Can anyone check my solution? Is there any other (maybe mathematical) way to solve this?

      If you're looking for more mathematical solution try thinking about the same problem but make the number of fingers also a parameter. Instead of it being 5 and make n\leq2k.

    Could not figure out what I was doing wrong then I remembered we have only 5 fingers.

        3 is the number of ways to show 4.

        4 is 4 is one way.

        4 is 3 and 1 is another.

        4 is 2 and 2 is the last one, because saying 4 is 1 and 3 would be the same as saying 4 is 3 and 1. Same goes with 4 is 0 and 4.

        EDIT:

        Yes CarolChen that is helpful.
