Hackerrank Partial Applications Solution
In Partial Application, we create a lambda that takes a parameter and returns a lambda that does something with it.
multiply_function = -> (number) do -> (another_number) do number * another_number end end doubler = multiply_function.(2) tripler = multiply_function.(3) puts doubler.(4) puts tripler.(4)
In the above example, the lambda will take number as a parameter, and return a lambda. When you call this lambda with another_number, it will return the product of the two.
You are given a partially complete code. Your task is to fill in the blanks (
Here, combination is a variable that stores a partial application which computes combination .
Solution in ruby
combination = -> (n) do -> (r) do (n-r+1..n).inject(:*) / (1..r).inject(:*) end end n = gets.to_i r = gets.to_i nCr = combination.(n) puts nCr.(r)
