Good morning (day, evening, night)!

Today's round problems authors are we — Rei and yaro. We've been thoroughly selecting the problemset, so hope you'll enjoy the final edition.

Thanks to problem coordinator Artem Rakhov for invaluable help in round preparation, and to those, who makes codeforces more comfortable, functional and stable.

Wish you good luck!

Thanks for a contest. Problem D is pretty good =).

Problem C is very interesting. I got the correct idea in almost one and half an hour, but mistakenly typed coord <= 4 instead of coord <= 5, then got challenged =)

    Same here! But luckily I didn't lock the problem, so I could resubmit and lose only ~400 points as opposed to ~1200 ;)

In problem C , almost everyone wrote same 2 line solution.

Alas, I did not give it a try.(the idea could have struck me too :( )

C is really interesting.
Firstly I thought it should be coord <= 2.
But it shows WA.
After thinking more , I realized that it should be coord <= 4.

As for problem D:
The time limit is quite strict for my solution.
My solution got TLE, but when I change the language to MS C++ , I got Accepted.

How long will take the analysis to be posted? (just by curiosity)

By the way, excelent contest, nice problems.

C is really interesting.I play this game for many times to get the right idea.But I think E is somewhat similar to a problem in TopCoder..

    You mean it has been already offered in some srm round? Hmm, would be great if you give a prooflink.

      Actually E is somewhat similar to E in last Codeforces Round

      I have seen this problem many times~ USACO APIO srm codeforces & ACMICPC tianjin site...

        Anyway we apologize for any similarity with another problems. We weren't sure that idea is original, but believed that statement certainly is.

      Here it is : Div 1 1000. The idea is explained in the wiki.

    It's easier than the problem E in last Round, although I also can't pass it by mistake.
    I think this one is similar to the last problem of APIO2010.

You wrote Ananysis instead of Analysis

It seems the best solution to problem E is to calculate the triangles that don't contain the point and has the time complexity O(n). But I wrote a program that directly calculate the triangles that contain the point with time complexity O(nlogn) which also got Accepted.

    There are links to the english analyses of all the problems in the post.

        آره لینک ها روسی است ولی اون بالا سمت راست اگه جای لاگ این رو انگلیسی کلیک کنی میاد

Hi all,

may I know if there is a proof for problem C? I am not sure how you can derive the answer.

Thanks!
