Grading Students – HackerRank Solution

Grading Students – HackerRank Solution

Problem :

HackerLand University has the following grading policy:

  • Every student receives a grade in the inclusive range from 1 to 100.
  • Any grade less than 40 is a failing grade.

Sam is a professor at the university and likes to round each student’s grade according to these rules:

  • If the difference between the grade and the next multiple of 5 is less than 3, round grade up to the next multiple of 5.
  • If the value of grade is less than 38, no rounding occurs as the result will still be a failing grade.

For example, grade = 84 will be rounded to 85 but grade = 29 will not be rounded because the rounding would result in a number that is less than 40.

Given the initial value of grade for each of Sam’s n students, write code to automate the rounding process.

Function Description :

Complete the function gradingStudents in the editor below. It should return an integer array consisting of rounded grades.

gradingStudents has the following parameter(s):

  • grades: an array of integers representing grades before rounding

Input Format :

The first line contains a single integer, n, the number of students.
Each line i of the n subsequent lines contains a single integer, grades[i], denoting student i‘s grade.

Constraints :

  • 1 <= n <= 60
  • 0 <= grades[i] <= 100

Output Format :

For each grades[i], print the rounded grade on a new line.

Sample Input 0 :

4
73
67
38
33

Sample Output 0 :

75
67
40
33
