Anyone can help me ?[ time limit exceed] Thanks very much!!!

  • 0

    my idea is use left shift to operate on divisor, then get the max n satisifies : divsor*2^n<dividend
    then let rel = divisor<<n; let provider = 1<<n;
    next, from i=n-1 to 0,
    if rel+divisor<<i < dividend, let rel=rel+divisor<<i; let provider=provider+1<<i;
    when i <0, provider is the result.

    I don't know why its time limit exceed, I think the time complexity is O(lgn)
    since every time , i use << , make the number increases 2 times, i don't know why time limit exceed,

    Can anyone help me ?? thanks a lot!!!

    class Solution {
    /*can use add and bit operation(like shift, |, & ,^) */
    int divide(int dividend, int divisor) {
    int n=0;
    int rel = divisor<<n;
    int provider = 1<<n;
    if(rel == dividend) return provider;
    int m = divisor<<n;
    if((rel+m) <= dividend){
    rel = rel+m;
    provider = provider+1<<n;
    return provider;
