Our solo sponsor Pete Sergeant has been a great support to keep us motivated. We are lucky that he agreed to continue the journey with us in the year 2022. I would like to personally thank Pete and his entire team for their generosity. It would be great if we could add few more to sponsor the prize money so that we could go back and declare weekly champions as we have done in the past. I hope and wish this will become possible in 2022. The amount doesn’t have to be huge. However, it would be nice to show off bunch of supporters. If an organisation comes forward and supports us then that would be the ultimate achievement.

Task 1: Divisible Pairs

Submitted by: Mohammad S Anwar

You are given list of integers @list of size $n and divisor $k.

Write a script to find out count of pairs in the given list that satisfies the following rules.

The pair (i, j) is eligible if and only if
a) 0 <= i < j < len(list)
b) list[i] + list[j] is divisible by k

Example 1

Input: @list = (4, 5, 1, 6), $k = 2
Output: 2

Example 2

Input: @list = (1, 2, 3, 4), $k = 2
Output: 2

Example 3

Input: @list = (1, 3, 4, 5), $k = 3
Output: 2

Example 4

Input: @list = (5, 1, 2, 3), $k = 4
Output: 2

Example 5

Input: @list = (7, 2, 4, 5), $k = 4
Output: 1

Task 2: Total Zero

Submitted by: Mohammad S Anwar

You are given two positive integers $x and $y.

Write a script to find out the number of operations needed to make both ZERO. Each operation is made up either of the followings:

$x = $x - $y if $x >= $y

or

$y = $y - $x if $y >= $x (using the original value of $x)

Example 1

Input: $x = 5, $y = 4
Output: 5

Example 2

Input: $x = 4, $y = 6
Output: 3

Example 3

Input: $x = 2, $y = 5
Output: 4

Example 4

Input: $x = 3, $y = 1
Output: 3

Example 5

Input: $x = 7, $y = 4
Output: 5


Last date to submit the solution 23:59 (UK Time) Sunday 30th October 2022.
