I'm not sure how you could do it without modulo and why you thought you should not use it.

Because if I were going to use computational means why should I just use them half way?

How is DP half way?

And even if it is, I'd trump doing only half of it (?) computationaly if it gets me the result faster.

First you must tell me what DP stands for.

What method? I do not think I had a method.

Ah, wait. Wrong thread. Post #28 is also in the wrong thread. Sorry.

Anyway, by looking at the problem, I'd say it is a book problem, which probably means that it has a non-computational solution, so, I do not know why you think this one has to be done computationally at all.

I do not think so.

Do not think what?

That it would be necessary to do a computation on it. I agree that it probably has some method.
