whew, i finally solved the problem Devu Vs Police! that was a lot more hard work than i thought it would be!!!
PS: i will share my solution after the contest. ;)

EDIT: hmm, it seems my solution is much harder to describe than i initially thought. but here is the link to my submission. i hope its not too hard to understand, but if u want more detailed explanation on anything particular u can ask me. :)

    Could you pls provide me an idea of the solution? My solution passed only half test.

    PS: Also I solved the most hard problem Summing the K-N-R Series :)

      This post might help you. You can also use x = maximum exponent in the prime factorization of n and C = φ(m) for a quick-and-dirty solution.

      What is your complexity for K-N-R? It took me real effort to make my solution to pass, I had to manually unroll loops and the alike. I don't think K-N-R was the hardest though, I put most work into "A very special multiple". But maybe I just used a stupid approach there. Does somebody have a rather simple solution for that?

        My soultion for K-N-R is too http://pastebin.com/itRUQiJt

        It's was quite easy for me to find out a recursion formula on a sheet. I got 'Accepted' with the first attempt:)

        UPD: Thank you for link, I was close.
