Problem 393. You LOVES Matlab 41%
what do you do when adjacent digits add up to a 2 digit number?
the end rule is also rather unclear, how comes 'humankind loves dinosaurs' goes like ... 1102,212,32; while 'harrypotter loves voldemort' goes like ... 129,311,42. It seems that either the former should end in 33, or the latter should end in 41...
agreed, i think 'humankind loves dinosaurs' should be 33
Sorry about that. I updated the rules and changed the dinosaur thing. Thank you for point out those errors.
We must compare the frequency of the word 'LOVES' with the word concatenation upper([E,S]) if someone else finds the problem description unclear. And [9,9,9] must become [1,8,1,8], which is also not clear by the description. Notice that this would create an infinite loop, but that's the current solution for this problem.
PS: My first guess was that [9,9,9] should become [1,2,2,6] -> [3,4,1,0] -> [7,5,1]-> 1 8 %, which makes more sense than some cases generating an infinite loop.
