Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it. - Brian Kernighan

@Henning, could you please elaborate on the last paragraph. I'm assuming you are only referring to the visual representation of the data.

comment Finding $n$ in $n=ReverseFactorial(x)$ where $x$ is known.
@Amzoti: Ouch. I can see what you mean. My case is closer to $101!-100!$. But instead of performing the actual calculation, I wonder if there is some logarithmic scale where I can approximate which two values of $n$ a given number falls between.

comment Calculating percentage to compensate for percent discount.
Thanks again. Now I understand why it was bugging me not to have simply multiplied (f & sr) in the standard (p / (1 - f)) equation. And sorry about about the mini-Markdown mistakes in my last comment. Cannot edit them.

comment Calculating percentage to compensate for percent discount.
Thank you. That is exactly what I was after but am not sure how to express it generically. The only known factors in the equation are $p=retail price$, $f=fee (10% in our case)$ and $sr=split ratio (50% is our contribution)$. Could you please elaborate $100/0.95$ as a generic expression having p, f & sr?

@HagenvonEitzen: We charge the customer \$111.111... such that the payment processor deducts 11.111... and we receive \$100. Now we are willing to charge \$x even if we receive less than \$100 as long as the processing fee is split equally.

Thanks @Henning. Reading through your third para again did it.

comment Determining similarity between paths (sets of ordered coordinates).
Thanks @RahulNarain: Since you mention non-convex, I assume you mean closed paths. Would this work on open paths (where the start and end do not meet)?

comment Determining similarity between paths (sets of ordered coordinates).
@AnonSubmitter85: Thanks. A quick Wikipedia view tells me it is logically possible to apply the concept here but I'm afraid without some guidance, I will not be able to implement it. What I can tell you is that the template path will have just enough points to allow users to draw a recognizable path. While the data to be matched will be sampled 30 times a second (video processing) and will have varying noise due to occlusion and other factors. Is this something you could help with?

comment Determining similarity between paths (sets of ordered coordinates).
@ChrisCulter: Could you elaborate how to go about implementing this measure as an algorithm. It seems to be what I am looking for but mathematical notation is beyond me. A little narration would go a long way. Thanks in advance.
