I feel some uncomfortableness to solve with a not mathematical method, like text processing. But it may smarter than take care of floating point, round error, etc.
hi my code works for tests 1 3 4 but not for test 2, can anyone help me?
here is my code:
function y = find_max_sigdec(x)
struggled for a bit with "format long" adding a value at 1e15.
definitely a tough problem!
Easy problem, vexing test suite. Be sure to clear the workspace (especially x) between tests!
Good problem. But don't waste your time trying to achieve size 10. It took me a couple of hours to figure out that it's just a trick using a built-in function to evaluate the program embedded within a string. This shouldn't be acceptable. The smallest solution size is probably in the 20s.
Easy if solved using strings,
Hard if solved using algorithms.
The assert against the use of 'if' is atrocious. No point in being there.
I hate the way computers handle floating point numbers. I had a solution in 5 minutes that took me an hour to troubleshoot because, according to Matlab, mod(x,1) = 1.
@Brandon I was a little concerned by your comment, but it appears that in MATLAB, mod(x, 1) is 0 for all integer x. I'm curious as to where you've observing different behavior?
