## Palindromic Partitioning

Problem Statement Given an integer array, partitioning the array is said to be a palindrome partitioning if every subarray of the partition is a palindrome. For example, 1 | 2 2 2 | 23 | 4 is a palindrome partitioning of array { 1,2,2,2,23,4 }. You have to find out the fewest cuts needed for palindrome partitioning of a…

## String to Integer (atoi)

Implement atoi which converts a string to an integer. The function first discards as many whitespace characters as necessary until the first non-whitespace character is found. Then, starting from this character, takes an optional initial plus or minus sign followed by as many numerical digits as possible, and interprets them as a numerical value. The string can contain…

## Maximum Difference in an Array

You are given an array of integers and must compute the maximum difference between any item and any lower indexed smaller item for the possible pairs, i.e., for a given array a find the maximum value of a[j] – a[i] for all i, j where 0 <= i < j < n and a[i] <…

## Trailing Zeroes in Factorial of a Number – FCTRL – SPOJ

Now we can approach it in 2 ways – the first approach is to calculate factorial of a number and then calculate the number of trailing zeros from the result. But for any value greater than 12 we will see integer exceed. So let’s go with the second approach and Find a relation between number and…

## SPOJ – FCTRL – Factorial

The most important part of a GSM network is so called Base Transceiver Station (BTS). These transceivers form the areas called cells (this term gave the name to the cellular phone) and every phone connects to the BTS with the strongest signal (in a little-simplified view). Of course, BTSes need some attention and technicians need…
