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

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(:*)

n = gets.to_i
r = gets.to_i
nCr = combination.(n)
puts nCr.(r)
