Hello, Codeforces!

Educational Codeforces Round 15 will take place on 29 July 2016 at 18:00 MSK for the first and the second divisions.

The round will be unrated for all users and it will be held with extented ACM ICPC rules. You will have two hours to solve six problems. After that you will have one day to hack any solution you want. You will have access to copy any solution and test it locally.

We with Mike MikeMirzayanov Mirzayanov decided to prepare this Round, because Edvard Edvard Davtyan is very busy at his new job. Good luck and have fun!

UPD Competition completed! Thank you all! Editorial

CF contest no 702. If we truncate trailing even digits, we would get lucky 7!

Hope everyone get points multiple of 702!

(Do not see rev 1, it was a mistake!)

in B in the first example shouldn't the pairs of indices included in answer be: (1, 4) and (2, 4) instead of (1, 4) and (3, 4)?

Has anyone tried solving D using a binary search?

Rev. 2   Vote: I like it 0 Vote: I do not like it

How is it my solution for D with map runs in 200 ms but solution with multiset gets TLE (>3000 ms)?

multiset: 19483894

map: 19499476

Is multiset really so slow? Why?

How to solve problem C if all the points were on 2 dimensional plane?

With k-d trees a straightforward is possible, is there another/better solution?

Hi,
In this this round, I've tried to hack the others code in hacking phase; but I couldn't find any buggy code or some tricky test case to hack and I've finished with an unsuccessful hacking attempt! After this try, I noticed that I should have a suitable mechanism for hacking. So what's your idea about it? what's your suggestion for me to do better in hacking phase?
And here my questions about hacking:

  1. How should I choose someone to hack? Randomly from common standing or needs some logical decision?
  2. When's the right time to hack in normal rounds?
  3. What's the right procedure to hack? Read codes and then break it with a test case or just check every code with some already prepared tricky test cases?
  4. How should I make test cases? According to someone code, generate randomly or make by hand after thinking about the problem?

    Read about sparse tables in topcoder and everything will seem simple.
