Problem 2126. Split bread like the Pharaohs - Egyptian fractions and greedy algorithm
Try to use "unique(floor(..." in the test cases. Isn't it Alfonso?? ;-)
This problem is quite well constructed and described. However, per the WP article linked to, it is important to specify two additional requirements: 〔1〕 Denominators must be positive. This is not explicitly mentioned in the Problem Statement [although perhaps it's implied], and moreover it's not checked in the Test Suite. That means 3/4 = 1/(1) + 1/(-4) would be erroneously accepted. 〔2〕 Each of the denominators must be different/unique. That is enforced in the Test Suite, but there's no mention of it in the Problem Statement. —DIV
Can't submit a solution to this problem (temporary unavailability of MATLAB Service).
The test suite has been updated to include more robust checks on solutions and solutions have been rescored.
