Problem 1742. Generate a Parasitic Number
As per the wiki page provided in problem 156 "leading zeros are not allowed". Thus the solution set here is flawed.
Chris, you are correct. The definition of a parasitic number does state "No Leading Zeros." That's why I explicitly stated that some of these values would have a leading zero, and when they would occur. While these numbers are technically not parasitic, the method for generating them is the same.
My solution works ok from the scratchpad, but only test 6 passes. I put my scratchpad inputs in Solution 8750070. I copied the y_correct values from the test cases, and all te isequal calls return true. Any idea why they fail, and why test 6 passes?
