Hello, Codeforces!

I'd like to invite you to Codeforces Round #293 (Div. 2). It will be held on Tuesday, February 24 at 19:30 MSK and as usual Div. 1 participants are invited to join out of competition.

Great thanks to Maxim Akhmedov (Zlobober) for helping me preparing the contest, to Maria Belova (Delinur) for translating the statements into English, to Mike Mirzayanov (MikeMirzayanov) for the great Polygon platform and ideas of some problems and to my dear friends Pavel Kholkin (HolkinPV), Arthur Svechnikov (ikar) and Vitaliy Kudasov (kuviman) for writing solutions.

It will be a little unusual round — you will be given six problems and two and half hours to solve them.

UPD Score distribution will be 500-1000-1500-2000-2500-2500. Good luck everyone!

UPD2 Competition completed! Thank you all!

UPD3 You can find editorial here.

UPD4 Congratulations to the winners!

It's special contest to celebrate CF's 5 year anniversary? :)

Codeforces has had an excellent start, and I'm sure it will grow and continue to become better in the future!

On behalf of everyone, thank you for this wonderful site!

I wonder why there isn't syntax highlighting in the source when they are displayed for hacking. That would make it a bit easier to understand the already horribly obfuscated codes people submit here.

Very-very funny contest :) even though I didn't get good result.

Problem A: I solved it <10mins, and I solve B <1h 20m.

But when I see the standing, I'm very-very embrassed... there is TOO MANY hacks in Prob A.

So, I think: "I should try hacks, too!" and I tried hacks and got 2 success and 2 fails.

And I checked my rank is > 900... then I tried to solve C, and I solved it in 02:22 (8 mins remain..)

I think my C solution is veryveryvery complicated.. I can't understand my algorithm fully. (a bit of luck? :> )

It was very funny and interesting contest. Thanks for contest problem makers :)

P.S. I'm sooo nervous for system testing :<

P.S 2 — The fastest systest ever! Wow..! I just got rank 1232, and only B correct. I didn't think of long long in Prob C...:<<

http://codeforces.com/contest/518/hacks/137892/test I think I was hacked against rules. In C statement is written: "Each integer from 1 to n occurs exactly once among a_i." How it is possible and what to do?

    Each integer from 1 to n still occurs exactly once among "a_i". You can have any values in b_i.

    I hacked your solution with this case. There is nothing against the rules, you can open an app multiple times :P Your solution has an undefined behavior in this case :P

Who do you think has the best implementation for the last problem? I just bruteforced it with a bunch of functions that are almost identical — 10005221

Nice contest, by the way, although it wasn't hard.

    Change the type of small[] and big[] from char to int then got accepted. In Java, char is 16-bit. 16-bit's maximum is 65535, lower then the input size(2*10^5).

      after I gave no response, he PMed this: 10009385. I believe Green_coder_1 is not his main account.

      I believe it was CMaster's clone. He was in my room, he realized I struggle with A, he submitted this 9986973, and he didn't solved C. What a shame.
