Hello everyone!

Codeforces Round #235 (Div. 2) will take place on March 10th at 19:30 MSK.

This is my first Codeforces round and I hope not the last one.

I'd like to thank Gerald Agapov (Gerald), Roman Rubanenko (Rubanenko), Sergey Oryshych (Oryshych) for helping me to prepare round, and Mariya Belova for translation of all problem statements into English.

Scoring: 500-1000-1500-2000-2500

GL & HF!

Top five:

  1. UESTC_XHXJ

  2. GoodByeAhu

  3. ZLD2

  4. simonlindholm

  5. angelyue

Congratulations of participant hoanglmdiv2, who solved the problem E.

Unfortunately, my fault, in the round hit the problem that was previously used on another competition. Since it does not comply Codeforces, problem E will be deleted.

    I think, there's 2 ways to deal with current situation with Div.2 Only contests (I mean, their low popularity) — either get rid of them at all or create Div. 3!

            i didnt understand, why is some people need divide it by the factorial of sums each number, and while others isnt

            my old code got tle too http://codeforces.com/contest/401/submission/6011014

            then i tried just need use 1 array, separating value of old array and new array with the numbers of bits that's on

              Depends on whether your DP takes care of identical digits in the same level or not ..

              for test case 2, n = 223, it has 6 possible permutations, however it has 3 distinct numbers only.

              Therefore, if you make sure not to take duplicate numbers into consideration, you won't need to divide by sum of factorials. Otherwise you do.

                yes, that's what i thought too, but i failed to find in their code how is they managed to do it

                for example, like the code commented below, http://codeforces.com/contest/401/submission/5984009

                i just didnt see the part which is take care of leading zero, or duplicate numbers

                maybe i need much more training reading others code

                  I haven't understood the whole code, but he handles that, by the fact that he only loops from (0-9) each time he makes the update on his current state of DP. And as for the Leading zero, I believe it's handled somehow using the bool lz ..

          You may use CUSTOM INVOCATION to test execution time of your solution, if you are not sure. Just have to choose realy "worst case". For example, my friend failed this problem today, because he tested on 112233445566778899 100 and it worked well — but m=100 isn't worst case for this problem, 'cause with it most states can't be reached — some large prime like 97 will give much harder case.

        using g++ you can do this:
