Hello, This is my first post here and I really need some help with this. I know this problem might be silly for many of you :) but I couldn't solve it, so need your help.
I am given 2 integers 1st one: N, I have to consider all permutations of numbers from 1 to N 2nd one: M, I have to count only those of the set of permutations in which no sum of adjacent numbers are dividable by M
Example: Input: 3 3 Output: 2 The set of all permutations is 1. 1 2 3 2. 1 3 2 3. 2 1 3 4. 2 3 1 5. 3 1 2 6. 3 2 1 But I can take only 2 and 4 because all the others have adjacent numbers whose sum is dividable by 3. So the output is 2.
The maximum value of N is 14 and for M is 30 Is there any efficient way of doing this?? Please note that, I know how to generate all the permutations and get the result using bruteforce. But given the constraints, this will take hours if not days. But some teams solved it on a single attempt in a local contest and I'm really out of ideas here. Please help..
