# The sum is always 15

Write a program or function that takes an array of non-negative integers as input and outputs a set of vectors/arrays with the elements of the input array in order, split so that each vector sums up to 15. If the sum of the first N elements doesn't "hit 15", then the number that made it pass 15 must be cut off, and the remainder will be the first element of the next vector. This goes on until you reach the end of the input array. If the sum of the final vector is less than 15, then a number must be added at the end to make the sum go up.

I think the rules are more easily understood by looking at the examples:

Input: 3 7 5 10
Output:
3 7 5           <- Sum is 15
10 5            <- 5 is added to make the sum 15

Input: 2 4 5 9 2 3 5 0 2 4 5 0 3
Output:
2 4 5 4          <- Sum 15. 9 is split in two.
5 2 3 5          <- The first 5 is the remainder of 9
0 2 4 5 0 3 1    <- The last number is added to make the sum 15

Input: 1 1 1
Output:
1 1 1 12         <- The number 12 is added to make the sum 15

Input: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17
Output:
1 2 3 4 5
6 7 2           <- 2 is the first part of 8
6 9             <- 6 is the remainder of 8
10 5            <- 5 is first part of 11
6 9             <- 6 is remainder of 11. 9 is first part of 12
3 12            <- 3 is remainder of 12. 12 is first part of 13
1 14            <- 1 is remainder of 13. 14 is 14
15
15              <- 15 is first part of 16
1 14            <- 1 is remainder of 16. 14 is first part of 17
3 12            <- 3 is remainder of 17. 12 is added to make the sum 15

Input: 20 20
Output:
15
5 10           <- 5 is remainder from the first 20
10 5           <- 10 is remainder from second 20. 5 is added to make the sum = 15.


Both the input and the output format is optional. Whatever is best in your language.

The shortest code in bytes wins.

The Stack Snippet at the bottom of this post generates the catalog from the answers a) as a list of shortest solution per language and b) as an overall leaderboard.

## Language Name, N bytes


where N is the size of your submission. If you improve your score, you can keep old scores in the headline, by striking them through. For instance:

## Ruby, <s>104</s> <s>101</s> 96 bytes


If there you want to include multiple numbers in your header (e.g. because your score is the sum of two files or you want to list interpreter flag penalties separately), make sure that the actual score is the last number in the header:

## Perl, 43 + 2 (-p flag) = 45 bytes


You can also make the language name a link which will then show up in the snippet:

## [><>](http://esolangs.org/wiki/Fish), 121 bytes

• 'Output format is optional'. Does that mean [[3, 7, 5], [10, 5]] would be a valid output for the first test case? – Morgan Thrapp Dec 2 '15 at 19:17
• @MorganThrapp, yes. that's valid. – Stewie Griffin Dec 2 '15 at 19:19
• @FlagAsSpam, I've added more explanations in the example you're asking about. – Stewie Griffin Dec 2 '15 at 19:20

## Pyth, 37 bytes

K15VQ=+ZNIgZK=-ZK-NZbIZZ)).?N;I>KZ-KZ


## Explained

K15              Store 15 in K (the max) (K is Autoinitializing, no = needed here)
VQ              For N in the evaluated input
=+ZN           Set Z(Which in pyth defaults to 0) to Z+N
IgZK           If Z(row total) is greater than or equal to K (row max)
=-ZK         Set Z to Z-K (How much the max was exceeded)
-NZ          Implicitly print N-Z
b            Implicitly print b (in pyth defaults to a newline)
IZ         If Z > 0 (There was excess to carry to the next row)
Z          Implicitly print Z (the excess)
.?N            Else(the current row count is < the max(15)) output the current number
;                Use infinite )'s in place of )) (to save 1 character)
I>KZ             If K > Z (The max is greater than the current row count)
-KZ           Implicitly print K-Z (The amount needed for the row to equal 15)


This was my first pyth, so feel free to suggest improvements.

## Example:

Input

[1, 3, 4, 5, 9, 8]


Output

1
3
4
5
2

7
8

• Else was recently changed to be .? instead of E, but I forgot to update the docs. Sorry about that. – isaacg Dec 3 '15 at 7:07
• @isaacg Thanks isaacg! I should have that working now. Though it only saves 1 byte since the else is 2 characters now. – csga5000 Dec 3 '15 at 19:04
• Fixing it as we speak. – isaacg Dec 3 '15 at 19:08
• A couple of other suggestions: =Z+ZN and =+ZN are the same. It's a bit like Python's +=. Likewiese, =Z-ZK -> =-ZK. Also, you don't need the ) at the end - it's filled in automatically. Finally, FNQ and VQ are the same. – isaacg Dec 3 '15 at 19:10
• You can save another 2 byte by replacing I>Z0 with IZ - Z can't be negative, so you're really just checking if Z is not zero, and zero is falsy, while all other numbers are truthy. – isaacg Dec 4 '15 at 22:49

First time poster here. Input is command line with entries separated by spaces, output is entry per line, with a newline between groupings.

• You can get it down to 122 by assigning 15 to a variable and only using one space for indentation. – Morgan Thrapp Dec 2 '15 at 21:57
• Also, you fail the second test case, I get 2 3 5, but it should be 5 2 3 5. – Morgan Thrapp Dec 2 '15 at 22:01
• @AdamMartin You may be interested in my Pyth version of your code – csga5000 Dec 3 '15 at 1:59
• Since you’re using print so often, you should save it as a variable: p=print. Saves you another 14 characters. – poke Dec 3 '15 at 12:05
• Current count is 132, but you can get it down to 113 if you remove some of the line breaks. You can combine every if into a single line, e.g. if s>i:s-=i;p(e-s);p();e=s for the second one. That saves you line breaks and indentation characters. – poke Dec 3 '15 at 22:04

Test it here.

This feels very suboptimal, but so far all my attempts at a shorter solution have been foiled by the presence of zeros in the input.

Made in python with love and almost no math.
Or Regex Math if you will, unary math.
'Real' math used only to 'fix' the last requirement:

If the sum of the final vector is less than 15, then a number must be added at the end to make the sum go up.

### Codegolfed:

import re
def f(i):o=[map(len,p.split())for p in re.findall('((?:x *){15}|.+)',' '.join(['x'*c for c in i]))];l=sum(o[-1]);o[-1]+=([],[15-l])[l<15];print o


The way this works is by converting each number N into a string of length N (x chosen as the char to fill up the string) and joining them all into a space separated string. Resulting string is split via RegEx BLACK MAGIC into something like:

['x xx xxx xxxx xxxxx ', 'xxxxxx xxxxxxx xx', 'xxxxxx xxxxxxxxx', 'x']


for an input like: f([1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10])
That's then split again, and the length of consecutive xes is used to create the numbers again, everything packed nicely in a list comprehension.

### Ungolfed:

import re
o = [map(len, p.split()) for p in re.findall('((?:x *){15}|.+)', ' '.join(['x'*c for c in i]))]
l = sum(o[-1])
o[-1] += ([], [15-l])[l<15]
print o


Output:

>>> f([30, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 16])
[, , [1, 2, 3, 4, 5], [6, 7, 2], [6, 9], , [1, 14]]


Note: there wasn't enough magic for the 0s so this entry disqualifies

zeros must be included. See the second example

• All those function names are rather expensive. Makes using something like regex nearly impossible in code golf. Still, your byte size isn't bad considering – csga5000 Dec 9 '15 at 6:27

With whitespace:

i => eval("
for(o=z=n='', m=15, t=q=0; q < i.length; q++)

### Example:

Assign the function to a variable

sumFifteen=i=>eval("for(o=z=n='',m=15,t=q=0;q<i.length;q++)(t+=c=+i[q])>=m?(t-=m,z+=c-t,o+=z+\n,z=t>0?t+' ':n):z+=c+' ';t<m?o+z+(m-t):o")


Then evaluate like so:

console.log(sumFifteen([1,4,11,4,5]))

1 4 10
1 4 5 5


Revision history:

12/3/2015 00:02 - Thanks to user81655(+1 him in the comments) for 10 byte improvement

12/2/2015 21:44 - Switched to use functional style in-order to reduce size.

• You could improve this with these: f= is not needed according to site rules, remove the parentheses from (i), surround with eval so you don't need return or the brackets and replace the if with a ternary so that o is returned and change '\n' to \n, merge t+=... with t>=m to remove for loop brackets. Here's your solution in 127 bytes with all these improvements: i=>eval("for(o=z=n='',m=15,t=q=0;q<i.length;q++)(t+=c=+i[q])>=m?(t-=m,z+=c-t,o+=z+\n,z=t>0?t+' ':n):z+=c+' ';t<m?o+z+(m-t):o") – user81655 Dec 3 '15 at 5:30
• @user81655 I'll implement some of those changes! When I try yours I get a SytaxError: Unexpected token ILLEGAL(...). Note, in order to test function I added f= – csga5000 Dec 3 '15 at 5:39
• SO adds some symbols after o+ at the end of the line. Delete o+=z and write it again and it will work. :P – user81655 Dec 3 '15 at 5:44
• @user81655 I don't see how \n makes any difference – csga5000 Dec 3 '15 at 5:45
• You mean the \n? It won't work without it because the code is inside "..." because of the eval. – user81655 Dec 3 '15 at 5:46

if r:l+=[m-r]
while l:
x=l.pop(0)
if s+x>m:y=m-s;l[0:0]=[x-y];x=y

Example usage:

>>> f([2, 4, 5, 9, 2, 3, 5, 0, 2, 4, 5, 0, 3])
2 4 5 4
5 2 3 5
0 2 4 5 0 3 1

Look ma, no calculations whatsoever...

• Better late than never! Very nice solution though :) – Dada Sep 15 '16 at 18:31
• 0s are rather tricky in this solution (represented by extra spaces) and I have to be very careful to properly handle spaces to keep the number of 0s correct. In particular consider inputs where a partial sum is exactly 15, like 1 14 2 13. Try them without the  ? and see what happens – Ton Hospel Sep 15 '16 at 18:45
• Yes, I tried it and saw that 0's where added at the begining of some lines like you say (that's why I deleted my comment 30 seconds after posting it). Thanks – Dada Sep 15 '16 at 19:00

Lambda version of https://codegolf.stackexchange.com/a/65590/46866 by yassin-hajaj, Not sure if a valid submission, but dont have enough rep to add a comment on the linked answer. Counted using http://meta.codegolf.stackexchange.com/questions/4944/byte-counter-snippet

a->{int c=0,j;String s="";f:for(int i:a){for(j=i;j-->0;)if(++c>14){s+=(i-j)+"\n";c=0;if(j<15){if(j>0)s+=j+" ";c+=j;continue f;}}s+=i+" ";}return s+(15-c);}

a->{int c=0,j;String s="";f:for(int i:a){for (j=i;j-->0;)if(++c>14){s+=(i-j)+ "\n";c=0;if(j<15){if(j>0)s+=j+" ";c+=j;continue f;}}s+=i+ " ";}return s+(15-c);}


Ungolfed

a ->
{
int c=0, j;
String s = "";
f:
for (int i : a) {
for (j = i; j-- > 0; )
if (++c > 14) {
s += (i - j) + "\n";
c = 0;
if (j < 15) {
if (j > 0) s += j + " ";
c += j;
continue f;
}
}
s += i + " ";
}
return s + (15 - c);
}


can be used like

Function<int[], String> func =a->{int c=0,j;String s="";f:for(int i:a){for (j=i;j-->0;)if(++c>14){s+=(i-j)+ "\n";c=0;if(j<15){if(j>0)s+=j+" ";c+=j;continue f;}}s+=i+ " ";}return s+(15-c);};
System.out.println(func.apply(new int[]{2, 4, 5, 9, 2, 3, 5, 0, 2, 4, 5 ,0 ,3}));
