Write a program which accepts as input a positive integer and checks, using the algorithm described below, to see whether or not the integer is divisible by 11. This particular test for divisibility by 11 was given in 1897 by Charles L. Dodgson (Lewis Carroll).

Algorithm:
As long as the number being tested has more than two digits, form a new number by:
• deleting the units digit
• subtracting the deleted digit from the shortened number
The remaining number is divisible by 11 if and only if the original number is divisible by 11.
Note:
Leading zeroes are not considered part of the number and should not be printed.

As usual, the first number in the input indicates the number of positive integers that follow. Each positive integer has a maximum of 50 digits. You may assume no leading zeroes exist in the positive integers.

For each positive integer in the input, the output consists of a series of numbers formed as a digit is deleted and subtracted, followed by a message indicating whether or not the original number is divisible by 11. Outputs for different positive integers are separated by blank lines.

Why am I getting OLE?

You have to print only 1 newline at the end.

how do you fix Presentation Error, check your whitespace?

EDIT: you need only need one \n for the last output

Could someone please look at my last submission? I don't know what causes the WAs... Thanks

Nvm I got it...The question should clarify that, if not divisible by 11, output "The number xxx is NOT divisible by 11."

Could someone check my most recent submission? It ACs on the first test case but not on the next two, and I can't figure out why not. Any help would be appreciated!

EDIT: forgot to check the final 2 digit number (ex. 22) lmao

• commented on July 12, 2019, 4:34 p.m. edited

Still cannot figure out what is the problem with my code -.- Can someone give me some hints as to what exactly I am doing wrong.

• commented on July 13, 2019, 1:06 a.m.

you have to print the number again, so if the number was 121, you have to print

121
11
The number 121 is divisible by 11.

not

11
The number 121 is divisible by 11.

which is what you are doing.

THANKS SO MUCH! That was my problem too.

• commented on Aug. 23, 2019, 3:54 a.m.

My mistake, I really should read questions carefully. Thank you very much!

This is a bit (a lot) harder because the input number is so long you can't put it all in one big int or long; the code will throw an InputMismatchException

The memory limit is also super low

Never mind this because the problem was edited some 22 years ago

DAMN

I forgot "."

......

this question doesnt allow us to use bigdecimal or biginteger. how else are we supposed to hold such a big number? or can you allow to use bigdecimal or biginteger?

• commented on Jan. 20, 2017, 7:17 p.m.

String, byte array, int array, char array, etc

• commented on Jan. 19, 2017, 10:49 p.m.

You could always look into how BigInteger works internally. Besides, allowing BigInteger would be unfair to languages that don't have it, and would also defeat the purpose of the question.

thanks alot :)

Just wondering, why is there no Python 3 in the allowed languages?

• commented on Oct. 19, 2016, 12:45 p.m.

Allowing Python would make the problem trivial because of Python's support of arbitrarily big numbers.

• commented on Oct. 20, 2016, 3:26 a.m.

Oh, right.

• commented on Sept. 13, 2016, 12:10 a.m.

uh, java.lang.NumberFormatException?

• commented on Sept. 13, 2016, 12:11 a.m.

Each positive integer has a maximum of 50 digits.

(much larger than what can fit in even a long)

• commented on Sept. 13, 2016, 12:14 a.m.

0-50+ digits works on my computer? w/o errors?

• commented on Sept. 13, 2016, 12:22 a.m.

My bad, I assumed that would be your issue without reading your code. Try a number like 848098180322800092606233221468227354577849547220.

• commented on Dec. 20, 2016, 5:17 p.m.

Hm, all the big numbers work in my code but I keep getting that NumberFormatError, any tips?

• commented on Dec. 21, 2016, 2:10 a.m.

Try numbers:

54862354760000000000532645 10000000000500000000007

I did it bois. Thank you!

What's the exact text to output if the number is not divisible by 11? "The number ____ is not divisible by 11."?

• commented on Sept. 3, 2016, 12:11 a.m.

Yes.
