Hi!

A few hours later you're lucky to participate in Codeforces Round #132 for Div.2 participants, but traditionally the others can take part out of the competition. It has been prepared by me (NALP), Edvard Davtyan (homo_sapiens), Vitaly Aksenov (Aksenov239), Gerald Agapov (Gerald), Mary Belova (Delinur) и Mike Mirzayanov (MikeMirzayanov).

Traditionally I wish good luck, accepted solutions and successful hacking attempts for you!

Especially, we want to wish grand results and good luck to all sportsmens, who are representing their countries on XXX Olympic Games in London!

Today it is decided to use dynamic scoring system. But the problems will be sorted from low difficulty to high by authors' opinion!

UPD: The Round is finished, thanks to all for participation! We hope you have got fun!

UPD: Congratulation to winners!

  1. yooo — solved all problems!

UPD: Tutorial in English is published!

      Don’t try to understand negative votes on codeforces.

      Massive anonymous trolling by scholars – common thing where negative voting is presented instead of accurate moderating.

    1. Typo "evryone": good luck everyone!!!!!!
    2. Comma: good luck, everyone!!!!!!!
    3. Capital letter: Good luck, everyone!!!!!
    4. One exclamation mark is more than enought: Good luck, everyone!

    But there is one more problem. What if every one of 2000+ registrants will leave a "good luck" comment?

Good problemset, nice competition , i was just surprised that task C turned out so difficult compared to task D, and they said the problemset will be sorted from low difficulty to high :)

      I think you should replace the "ru" in the link by "com" :)

        Nevertheless, the language of the tutorial is English. Domain doesn't matter.

      By the way, can you tell me when will the solution of problem E be posted?

  Vote: I like it +4 Vote: I do not like it

I have written the solution using C#

For B I got WA five times. And didn't get AC. After contest I found that when printing double type value the decimal point is replaced by comma on Codeforces. But it worked fine on my PC.

So whats the problem? How to print Double type values using C#? If my code is right why should I be the looser?

    You can use value.ToString(CultureInfo.InvariantCulture), or if you don't trust Mono or forget it, use value.ToString().Replace(',','.').

Can anyone prove why only the end points (1bus or min. # of bus with no compensation) lead to the optimal solution ?

    Let's define fi(c) as number of rubles, that we will spend in i-th region if c children will be in the hot bus. .
    where . This function is linear, if we omit ⌈⌉. So it reaches it's extreme values on the boundaries of the definition range. So we must check only fi(1) and fi(m). Also, we must check with no additional costi for the hot bus.
