Hi to everybody from sunny Petrozavodsk!

Today me and my brother sdya prepared a few interesting problems for you. Because of very tight schedule in Petrozavodsk training camp, that includes rafting and watching anime all night long, we didn't have time to write long problem statements. So enjoy unambiguous short statements and you are welcome to invent some legends for them on your own.

Good luck and have fun!

Contest is over! Congratulations to winners!

Just a little mistake "invent some legends for them on you own." Must be "invent some legends for them on your own."

Man I love these training camps you guys get to attend. I wish I could, but none happens in my part of the world. :( Hopefully some day I'll conduct one, when I am RED. ;)

    why? queue testing became normal after 20 min.

      20 mins = 40+++ points,, if you know your solution is wrong after a very slow judging..

    That's a real awkward situation when you get to know that your solution was wrong after 20 minutes of submitting and you are coding the next problem.

In problem B i know the size 2n*2n but i didn't notice he give me the input 2n not n
i solved the problem as the input=n so i didn't divide by 2
so just n/2 ----> passed  :( :( :( :(

    Looks like I am not getting the statement right :-

    For the case 18 4.

    Why is 6 not a solution, it does not divide any of 14,15,16,17 . Or did I miss something miniscule.

    Thanks.

      The 4 in "18 4" refers to the four lines above,
      4 0
      3 1
      5 2
      6 2
      

      18 has 6 divisors: 1,2,3,6,9,18, and only two of them do not divide 4,3,5,6.

Can anybody tell me how testing is done when there are multiple solution for test case, like in todays div2 Problem C.
  • 8 years ago, # ^ |
      Vote: I like it 0 Vote: I do not like it
    It checks to see if your solution satisfies the constraints...
  • 8 years ago, # ^ |
    Rev. 2   Vote: I like it 0 Vote: I do not like it

    Algorithm for checker.

    If solution prints anything and it is correct- AC (it is easy to check 2 conditions)
    If solution prints anything but not correct - WA
    If solution prints -1, and jury prints -1 AC
    If solution prints -1, but jury have answer WA
  • 8 years ago, # ^ |
    Rev. 2   Vote: I like it 0 Vote: I do not like it

    Testing procedure is not always exactly full comparing of your answer and jury answer.
    Usually authors write special program - checker, that checks your answer, using input and jury output for this test. Moreover, sometimes checker program can be much more difficult then solution.

I made a funny mistake, failed my C because I thought that 1<<6 is less than 40 :-)
8 years ago, # |

In division 2, C; test 50 looks like that: 2 1 1 and the supposed answer is 0 1. However, in problem it is said that all the numbers should be positive integers, it means 1 or greater. So with n=2, it is impossible to satisfy y=1. My answer was -1 then, but i got WA.
Did I miss something or it is a mistake in author's solution?

    No, your answer is 0 1, and the correct one is -1. At least, that's what I see below your solution.

    Your answer is not "-1" but "0 1".
    You can see checker message in test protocol.

    In test 50 for your solution message is: "wrong output format All numbers must be positive, but the 1-th isn't (1-based)."

but I don't know why the judge queue took so much time.

I think brief description is cool. With possibly as much mathematical expressions as possible to reduce ambiguity.

Any one else didn't see the n.m<=40 constraint in C DIV-1?

    Many didn't see (at least three other persons except me), that's why I personally don't like the round.

    UPD: Yeah, baby, give me more minuses, people never like truth =)

      It could have been more clear this way (same meaning):
      The first line contains two space-separated positive non-zero integers n and m (1 ≤ n·m ≤ 40) — the board sizes.

    It takes me about 45 minutes to find a solution for 1600 cells and after beind disappointed, I read the problem once again and saw that it is n.m<=40 not n,m<=40

Can someone please explain the solution of problem E from Div 2? :D
  • 8 years ago, # ^ |
      Vote: I like it 0 Vote: I do not like it
    It is basically brute-force but reducing complexity to solvable limits by using memoization/bottom-up DP.
    1.first rotate the grid such that smaller side remains at top, which is of length <= 6. (sqrt(40)).
    2.then try all possible subsets (2^6).
    3.any particular state is given by settled spiders in curr. row and prev row. and the curr row number.
    4.Easy if you have solved similar problems previously.

it isn't fair!
the timer should be started as a problem is opened or at least when someone enters the contest area!

    But your first submission was only after 34 minutes, when judge has already begun to work properly

    I think this is a fair complaint.
  • 8 years ago, # ^ |
      Vote: I like it 0 Vote: I do not like it
    As I understood this complain is not related to today's incident, but for CodeForces format as well. But it's the rules - the timer starts at the set time.
    But seriously, I don't get what isn't fair - that's the rules of this competition. It's like arriving late to a rock star concert and complaining afterwards that he started before you arrive. The advantages and disadvantages of particular format (CodeForces/ACM/TopCoder/IOI etc.) is another topic.
    Sorry if I misunderstood your post.

yes, but I entered the room 26 minutes after the beginning and it should be 8 nor 34!
  • 8 years ago, # ^ |
      Vote: I like it 0 Vote: I do not like it
    Why? This is not TopCoder.
    Here time is calculated like ICPC style, from the beginning of the contest. You can read about this rules in FAQ.
    And anyway, you've missed the time when judge had troubles.
