Hi everyone,

Codeforces round #251 for division 2 participants will start at June 4, Wednesday, 19:30 MSK (usual time). Traditionally we invite Div.1 participants to take part out of the competition.

The round was prepared by me (praveen123). This is my first codeforces round. I have tried my best to make the problem statements as clear as possible. I hope that everyone will enjoy the round.

Special thanks to Gerald(Gerald), for his extensive help in problem ideas verification, problem testing, without his help the contest would not have seen the day. English translation is done by me with a lot of help from Gerald Agapov(Gerald). Problems are translated in Russian by Maria Belova(Delinur).

Many thanks to Pratik Moona(pratikmoona), Varun Nitish(JuanMata) for providing their help in testing of round. Their help is greatly appreciated :)

Many thanks to Devendra Agrawal(devuy11243)Utkarsh Lath(utkarshl) to helping me in verifying the ideas of problem statements.

Many thanks to Mike Mirzayanov(MikeMirzayanov) for creating this wonderful platform :)

The contest problems are dedicated to my dear friend Devu (devuy11243), He once proposed problem titled "Churu, the thief". Churu is my nick-name. So it is now time to take some revenge in a funny way :P

Score distribution for the contest is standard: 500-1000-1500-2000-2500.

I have a good news for you too. Tutorial of the contest will be available as soon as the contest ends :).

I wish all the participants good luck, high rating and lot of hacks :) Don't miss the round.

UPD Thank you everyone for participating. I hope that you have enjoyed the round, Thank you all !!

AFAIR, devuy11243 named it "Dhinwa Chor" not "Churu, the thief", which was later renamed "Dorsey Thief" before the contest.

For Non-Hindi speaker, Chor == Thief

      actually, thank you for creating such an awesome problem. it was by far the hardest i have ever worked to solve a problem since i started competing in online contests.
      and as u can see from my AC solution, i used CRT and ETF (two concepts i barely knew, and had no pre-written code for), along with a few small "tricks", to solve it. was that the intended solution?

        In my opinion, CRT is unnecessary — you need only fast modular exponentation and ETF.

        Of course (from Euler's theorem) we know that . So, for example, φ(10) = 4 and then

        In your task you can see that (if n ≥ 2)

        So you need to do only the following things:

        • compute k = φ(n).

        • find (use the modular exponentation); let's say the result is e.

        • find (again modular exponentation).

          But it can happen that (a, n) ≠ 1 and so, your idea will not always work.

          My idea was to factorize n and do some stuff which I forgot(and don't understand from my code) :P

            Oops, true. I didn't notice the lack of the assumption :D

            However, I'm almost sure the following trick works: we can write a = xy, where x contains all the prime divisors which are both in a and n (for example, if a = 2734527 and n = 233911, then x = 2734 and y = 527). We do the same for n: n = zt (in the example above, z = 2339, t = 11). Result is then

            We can compute second factor as I mentioned previously (just because (y, n) = 1). What about the first one?

            • If the exponent (b·cd) is quite small (less than or just 30), we can brute-force it.
            • In the opposite case note xb·cd is surely divisible by z (compare the exponents). Then we just have to compute , which is doable using my previous post ((x, t) = 1) and then just multiply our result by z.

            I hope it's understandable (and moreover, that it's true) ;)

As the round closes, I'd like to commend the round writers. Even though the contest was slightly easier (I, who usually gets only one problem, solved 3), I loved the problems and how each and every one of them were easy sounding but had something to figure out.

Thanks for my favorite problems so far!

    I used inclusion-exclusion principle. And it passes the sample tests :D

    I count number of bad distributions, like distributions that can be divided by 5, 7 etc. Then using IE principle I exclude 5*7 divisors etc. This works in O(Q*(2^7)). the number 7 is due to the fact that 2*3*5*7*11*13*17 is bigger than 10^5.

    But I was not able to submit in time :|

    I think about the following solution but I got WA2. First of all, lets calculate how many solutions has quality n = a1 + ... + af , where ai >  = 1. We can do in C(n - 1, f - 1) ways(this is well-known problem). Then if gcd(ai) = x > 1 then x|n. So try to iterate all dividers of n, and for all such x, subtract from our answer C(x - 1, f - 1). Is it correct?

    It means someone else from your room who also passed pretests and after locking his/her solution , the person went through your solution and maybe found some mistakes in your code. He then made your code go through his custom test , which your solution failed . :( To avoid this situation make sure your implementation is absolutely correct or no one is able to guess the mistake in your solution.

Hello, I'd like to bring attention to the following code, it's for problem B with complexity of O(NlogN). But it got TLE, I can't find an explanation for this behaviour. My code template is rather large but it is ok, you can rest assure about that since I'm using this template for last 10+ contests. Only getInput() and solveCase() methods are relevant here.

    It's become popular to use an anti-quicksort test to break Java solutions. Arrays.sort() uses a variant on quick-sort that has a worst case of O(N^2) for (very) unlikely testcases. However, if they can choose them, they can make your program time-out due to sorting cost.

    Use ArrayList and Collections.sort() if you want to avoid it, or just use Integer[] instead of int[].

        I agree, it's quite frustrating to always remember to consider that someone may try that, but unfortunately it's a "valid" hack, so I doubt they'll fix it. Someone hacked my B and D, and I was required to resubmit both at the ~1:50 mark.

    You fail if there are no even numbers enough to fill some arrays, like in this case: 5 5 2 1 3 5 7 9

I locked my problem from dashboard and then went to standings to hack solution. But I was able to open hack window for my submitted code. When I double clicked on someone else's solution then it just showed pretest passed,etc.. Clicking on submission number didnt open the hack window. What was I doing wrong?

Failed problem D because of implicit transformation of an integer and failed C because of i failed to copy paste some validation made on the even numbers to the odd numbers... Missed the spot 45 because of two errors...

Anyways, congratulations because of the contest, well made, i understood without any trouble all statements.

I was just going through different submissions of problem C, and came across this solution 6802980 which shows wrong answer for test case 44, but the output seems correct. Could you kindly tell how is that answer wrong?

Got it Didnt see the number of elements :P

my best contest ever, that's actually the first time i solve problem D in a contest really hats off to problem setters!.

i still wonders why a lot of participants failed in problem C?

    Lots of people forgot to add some conditions, in my case, i forgot a lot of things, such as considering all odd numbers or all even numbers, etc... I failed because of failing one simple validation... So i think many people got the C wrong because of not thinking all possible cases that could be evaluated with.

    Congratulations on your result :)

      Sorry I meant the same. On my machine I am getting the output I mentioned in my earlier comment on test 3 but don't know why my answer is shown as NO.

Congratulations for the round! I loved the problems because they were more idea-based than algorithm-based. Also, I liked E because I don't find as many PINEX problems as I want to usually, so thank you!

I've got RTE in problem C (test 20). I used queue with operations push and pop. After the contest, I changed queue to vector, only operation push_back, and I've got AC. Why RTE? Link to my submission: http://codeforces.com/contest/439/submission/6805127

    I modified your solution, and got AC.

    Basically the size of queue changes, so you should keep the original size as a variable.

When I submit the solution: the status is "in queue", waste many time. Can you fix it :D
