Can we suppose fixed scoring, as it is not specified?

    It is already specified that the points are standard ->500,1000,1500,2000,2500 .. So no dynamic scoring

C is very annoying :) Got 9 WA's and still don't know what's wrong with my solution.

    I had a WA 4 when I checked for line-circle intersection instead of segment-circle.

C was very fun (I didn't get it though). Thanks for a good problem set!

      the thng was tht the entire process was totally recursive..

      so if 1 value matches the sequence the rest will follow..;)

      simply simulate the expt1 till u do not exceed t..

      after tht both will take same number of steps....

      ans is n-i+1 where i is no. of steps to reach t

      P.S.: be careful not to output -ve..:P

In problem B in div 2, we just have to find number of circles(out of 4) which are not intersected by any other circle. Am I right ?

Please help me someone.

    You have to check for every circle from each pair that it lies either in smaller of the other pair or outside bigger of the other pair. Checking only intersection is not enough as you can face a situation when a circle lies between 2 others ( exactly in the ring), so the color is not changed from white to black or vicer versa).

    You should find the number of circles that are not intersected by the other 'disc'. For a circle in disk 1, simply checking intersection with both circles of the other disc is not enough. For example, the 1st disc may lie entirely inside the black region of the other disc, in which case there are no circle-circle intersections, but the number of contours is 2.

Today is Dragon Boat Festival. Happy Dragon Boat Festival!

Also, today is Alan Mathison Turing's 100th birthday.

    I can add to your wonderful list that today there is another one celebration in Saint-Petersburg called Scarlet Sails show ("Алые паруса" in Russian). It's the holiday for all school-leavers. However, that event gathers not only them, but a lot of citizens and visitors of Saint-Petersburg.

      The problem with your post in my opinion is: How can Turing be happy on his birthday when he has passed away many years ago ?!! So, wishing a happy birthday to him may not make that much sense.
