[Solution] N Queens Puzzle Solved solution codechef

N Queens Puzzle Solved solution codechef – Chef, being a Chess fan, was thrilled after he read the following news:

Michael Simkin, a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University’s Center of Mathematical Sciences and Applications proved that for a large value of NN, there are approximately (0.143N)N(0.143⋅N)N configurations in which NN queens can be placed on a N×NN×N chessboard so that none attack each other.

Although the formula is valid for large NN, Chef is interested in finding the value of function f(N)f(N) = (0.143N)N(0.143⋅N)N for a given small value of NN. Since Chef is busy understanding the proof of the formula, please help him calculate this value.

Print the answer rounded to the nearest integer. That is, if the actual value of f(N)f(N) is xx,

  • Print x⌊x⌋ if xx<0.5x−⌊x⌋<0.5
  • Otherwise, print x+1⌊x⌋+1

where x⌊x⌋ denotes the floor of xx.

Input Format

  • The first line of input contains a single integer TT, denoting the number of test cases. The description of TT test cases follows.
  • Each test case consists of a single line of input containing one integer NN.

Output Format

For each test case, output in a single line the value of f(N)f(N) rounded to the nearest integer.


  • 1T121≤T≤12
  • 4N154≤N≤15

Test case 11: f(N)=(0.1434)4=0.107f(N)=(0.143⋅4)4=0.107, which when rounded to nearest integer gives 00.

Test case 22: f(N)=(0.14310)10=35.7569f(N)=(0.143⋅10)10=35.7569, which when rounded to nearest integer gives 3636.
