Hello Codeforces community!
Codeforces Round #318 (for both divisions) will take place on August, 29 at 19:30 MSK. It is the Thanks-Round devoted to Russian Code Cup. You will be given 5 problems and 2 hours to solve them. Scoring will be announced close to the round. I strongly recommend you to read all problems.
RussianCodeCup is the largest open programming competiton for Russian-speaking participants by Mail.Ru Group. Its history started in 2011. And since the first championship RCC offers great problems and generous prizes. This year finals will be held on September, 19th. Wish good luck to all the finalists! Thank you, RussianCodeCup, for your gift on the 5th anniversary of Codeforces!
I am honoured to be a problem setter for this round. I wouldn't do it alone. I want to thank Zlobober for his great help with problems preparation and MikeMirzayanov (and all people working on Codeforces and Polygon) for this awesome site. It's an amazing place to learn and compete. My big thanks to winger and AlexFetisov for their help with testing a round. And to Delinur for translating statements. As you see, not only a setter creates a round.
It's my first Codeforces round but not my first problems here. You can check out A, C and D from VK Cup 2015 — Round 2. Also you might remember some of my problems in TC rounds. I'm very happy with finally preparing a full round for Codeforces and I hope you will enjoy it. I tried my best to prepare nice and diverse problemset, you will judge it. In all problems you will have to help Limak who is quite unusual bear.
I wish you great fun and no frustrating bugs. Looking forward to seeing you!
UPD: Scoring is 500-1000- 1750 -2000-2500 in div1 and 500-1000-1500-2000- 2750 in div2. Enjoy a round!
UPD: Contest is over. The winners:
And note from an author. There were some wrong solutions passing. Sorry for that. I tried my best to create strong tests but I failed a bit. Did you like this round? What do you think about problems?
Thanks for participating!
