The problem

Write a program that inputs two integers n and k, where n>=k.

Your program should calculate the number of different ways that k

bishops could be placed on an nXn chessboard. Structure your

program using the backtracking scheme that we have used for the

eight queens problem. What needs to be modified is the “OK”

function.

Input

Your main program should loop asking the user for values of n

and k.

Output

Each time through the loop, output n, k and the number of

configurations. Program Termination The program will terminate if

the user enters a value of -1 for n.

k bishops on an nXn chessboard We have previously solved the “N Queens Problem”, where, for a given n, we calculated the number of ways to place n queens on an nXn board. This problem concerns “bishops” on the chessboard. What is a bishop? A bishop is a chess piece that controls all the squares on the two diagonals that it can reach Note that a bishop may be either on a white square or a black square.
