I think that given a number x, then the code is to change it a way to read the digits of x:
input: 1, output: 11
input: 2, output: 21
input: 11332, output: 212312.
my code gets a wrong answer:
input: 1, my output is 11, and the expected ouput is 1, why?
I cannot umderstand
Hi lamster, the problem is not about 'reading off the digits of input x', but rather the input x is an INDEX in a number sequence, where the xth number is the 'read-off' of the (x-1)th number (e.g, if the 102th number is 8553223, then the 103th number would be 1825132213). And you are asked to return the number which x corresponds to (e.g. if x = 103, then you are expected to output 1835132213).
If your input is 11332, then you need to find the 11332th number in the following number sequence:
1, 11, 21, 1211, 111221 ...
and it is probably an extremely big number.
