Hi!

The Codeforces Round #398 (Div. 2) is going to be held on Saturday, 18 February 2017 at 9:05 UTC for participants from division 2.

The round is based on XIII Nizhny Novgorod Olympiad in Informatics for high school students named after V. D. Lelyukh, which will take place on Saturday in Nizhny Novgorod. However, not all problems from the Olympiad are included into this round.

The problems were prepared by KAP, ashmelev, ZhNV, kuzmichev_dima, mmatrosov, mike_live, arsor and me.

You will be given two hours to solve five problems. As usual, participants from division 1 can take part out of competition.

Scoring: 500-1250-1500-2000-2500.

UPD: The contest is over, thanks to all who has participated! Congratulations to the winners:

Div. 2:

  1. maryanna2015
  2. imperishableshooting
  3. aquatic
  4. Cth1999
  5. mister_dudec
  6. FallDream
  7. Illidan
  8. Alex342
  9. A.Magdy7 and TmEnd

Div. 1:

  1. eddy1021
  2. HellKitsune
  3. I_love_Tanya_Romanova
  4. gritukan
  5. latte0119

I apologise for the problem difficulty of the problem B, we expected much more accepteds. Hope you liked the problems! The editorial will be posted in 1.5 hours after the Olympiad is finished. Editorial.

We know about the issue with ratings, they will be rolled back and then updated properly. Don't worry.

Wait, correct me if I'm wrong (not likely haha) but if someone has a friend who participated in the XIII Nizhny Novgorod Olympiad then he could technically get some advice from him regarding the problems... Are there any countermeasure for that or should we all try befriend some novgorodians?

    At first, you must find such time between ts and tf, when there won't be anyone. The waiting time at this case 0. If there are always someone, then u have to find time among all pre-visiters, which is the smallest ( a waiting time, not arrival time).

    Lets try to stand in front of every person p in the queue — optimally, we need to come 1 minute earlier than p. Find the minimum of that waiting times (and don't forget to check will it be enough time to become documents)

    Before printing the answer check what if we will come after all persons — will it be enough time (t) to become documents

      The problem statement clearly states "If the receptionist would stop working within t minutes, he stops serving visitors (other than the one he already serves)." Your answer indicates that the receptionist ALSO STOPS SERVING THE ONE HE IS SERVING. Did I get that right?

          Exactly if start_time<end-t then it means no visitors can be processed but the output statement states that there always exist an answer. So what should the answer be in such a scenario??

            There is probably no such input because "It is also guaranteed that Vasya can arrive at the passport office at such a point of time that he would be served by the receptionist."

        Yes it has to be "ALSO STOPS SERVING THE ONE HE IS SERVING.". I also had the same doubt and clarified it early (luckily). I believe problem statements weren't clear on this.

          The problem statement is extremely clear on this. In fact, it clarifies that the statement "stops serving visitors" does not relate to currently served visitor. Model solution and tests are simply broken.

            No I was wrong, the key part of the statement that I read incorrectly was "If the receptionist would stop working within t minutes". So the statement is concerned with time (end — t), like satyaki3794 said. After that time point the receptionist does not accept new customers, but he will serve the current customer through, and be done with him before end time.

    First check if there's a time before tf such that no one is waiting for processing. Then vasya can come at this time, and wait for 0 second.

    If not, and if there are k different arrival times in input, then try to see if there's a minimum waiting time possible for the preceding time for all these k values. Additionally, check the time after all values in input are processed, if then vasya can still get his request processed, before tf.

    You don't need to do knapsack. You always choose one of these per day: paying with notes only OR paying exactly. And "paying with notes only" can be thought that you get 100 coins and some dissatisfaction. So greedy will work. Simulate from beginning. Whenever you don't have enough coins, choose a day with minimum dissatisfaction from the past and add it to the answer. Priority queue will be enough to implement this.

        I think using set is with big constant on each operation like insert and upper_bound, which leads your solution TLE.

          I guess all operations of set takes log( set.size() ) time which I computed earlier, and then too I don't find a way where computation increase to 10^8.

          Can you plz tell when we should avoid set( as u say it causes TLE ) and use some other option as I usually see 10^8 compution( if exceeding then TLE )?

            Ummm... Just to understand using functions from STL may requires higher time as they are usually with larger constanst.

            For instance, writing binary search on your own is usually faster than using lower_bound from STL. Also, maintaining stacks or queues on your own are usually faster than using queue<> and stack<> from STL as well.

            You may try to have some experiments on performing million times of binary search written by yourself, and with the same case, test on performing million lower_bound.

            In cases that we can easily write functions on our own, and the problem TL is very tight, we should not rely on STL functions.

        It is not well within 10^8 operations. If any of the cartons has size 10^7 then variable maa is also equal to 10^7.
        Before you begin calculating the answer you insert all integers from 0 up to maa into your set and this initialization itself takes around 2*10^8 operations.

          10^7 * ( log(10^7) ) == 7 * log( 10^7 ) ( Base 10 )

          10^7 * ( log(10^7) ) is approx 2 * 10^8 ( Base e )

          Are STL operations base 10 or base e as both gives different results?

          Yeah I realised that earlier from comments above and made it AC after changing variable maa threshold.

            I think the most of the time we deal with base 2 logarithms. Nobody bothers to mention the base unless its different from 2 (Correct me if im wrong). Since sets are usually implemented as red-black trees (according to cpp reference) i believe the base is equal to 2.

      Maybe judge data was weak.. I don't see any number fi, si being 107 in the tests. I can see that there are maximum fi, si ≤ 9 × 105 :| Then O(xlogn) passes simply.

      Also even if x = 1e7 then it can pass also :) O(1e7 log 1e7) O(2 * 1e8)

Was problem C greedy tree dp? My approach was to find a subtree of weight of dp[root]/3 and remove the weight of that subtree from its ancestors' weights. Then I try to find another subtree that has weight of dp[root]/3 and we are done.

Code: Link

Is this approach correct?

How to solve C? I am getting WA on pretest 8 and 10.

My approach -> If totalheat is not divisible by 3 return -1. Check if we can find two subtree of totalheat/3 then return those 2 values. Check if we can find a subtree with heat totalheat/3 and and it's parent with heat 2*totalheat/3 then return parent and that node. Else return -1.

    The general idea is correct but your solution fails at both cases. You need to check that two subtrees of weight totalheat / 3 do not intersect and checking that immediate parent has weight 2 * totalheat / 3 is not enough — it could be parent's parent that has the weight 2 * totalheat / 3.

    While calculating weight of subtrees, whenever weight of a subtree equals totalheat/3 push it into ans vector and return 0, because it will not be contributing in it's parent. It will handle the removal of that subtree.

C was awesome...D was a little easy for a D problem (they should have been swapped)

I didn't read B but judging of the number of people who have solved it it must be really hard for a B problem

The statements were rubbish..they were way longer than they needed to be (that's why I didn't solve B...skipped it after seeing the statements)

But all in all the contest was great.

It so frustrating when you solve problem but can't pass tests because standard reading method, you used all the time, doesn't read fast enough for this input. I have linear time solution for C but probably reading method I use in my C# solution too slow. Now I think that string.Split() is just too slow for this problem. Don't enjoy such contests.

    I have the same I/O timeout problem for problem D also for C#. Spent the entire contest time trying to figure out why I am getting timeout on test 9.

    I also don't welcome this situation. The official answer was that "It is not guaranteed that a solution exists for all languages". Well, c'on... I have seen some folks with solutions in C++ and still getting timeout on test 9, probably for the same reasons (since some are Div1).

    I would like to thanks the organizers for setting up the contest of course, really enjoyable, but cannot but feel disatisified with taking a big rating hit for trying to solve a problem which is unsovable given the time limits without optimizing I/O.

    Really, this is a known issue. My opinion is that the limits should have been increased to 3 or 3.5 seconds to allow for such reads. This will still not make an n^2 fit but will allow enough time to I/O...

    Didn't even have time to read the others except B (which also has a very long text...). My opinion is that weather this particular contest should be rated should come into question.

      I would vote for unrated because there were several issues with timeouts due to I/O operations taking to long (for example in C# for problems D and I understand also C).

      I would really have enjoyed this contest especially due to the harder problems however if despite a sound solution I have to spend the entire contest time to figure out I get timeouts due to I/O, then.. I would go for unrated.

        I think the receptionist will choose to serve a new comer or not, based on whether if the receptionist can serve the new comer fully before the close of reception

        So for "the one he already serves", they mean those being fully served as the receptionist will choose not to serve the new comer if the new comer cannot be fully served.

    Let's rephrase the last sentence : "The receptionist will not accept new customers during last t minutes, but she will finish serving those who came until time t_f - t" I misunderstood this statement during contest as well, but fixed my code easily with this new insight (compare 24774069 and 24775470).

    IMO, pretest 3 should have simply been added to problem statement and all would be much better.

    If Vasya visits at t = 60, Vasya is served from t = 60 to t = 69 which consists of 10 whole minutes. So the reception can close at tf = 70.

    so that (tf - 1) is the last minute when the receptionist is still working

    By this, the receptionist still works at t = tf - 1 = 70 - 1 = 69.

My answer was 13. Why is it wrong? In the condition it states: If the receptionist would stop working within t minutes, he stops serving visitors (other than the one he already serves), so I assumed that means he should enter before tf but doesn't need to get out before tf.

        But he comes after than T seconds before the end, so the queue is already closed. He isn't even start getting the passport.

        The idea behind the phrase is the following one. Suppose T = 5, Tr = 20. If you come at 13 seconds, you will be served even if the queue is supposed to close at 15. If you come at 18, however, you aren't served.

Problem B statement is wrong.
"If the receptionist would stop working within t minutes, he stops serving visitors (other than the one he already serves)."
I submitted without considering above statement, my solution got accepted.

      Answer should be 13 instead of 0.
      Problem is occuring because of wrong problem statement.
      "If the receptionist would stop working within t minutes, he stops serving visitors (other than the one he already serves)."

        even i had that confusion and had 4 WAs thanks to that. then i asked in the question section and got clarified.

        As codeforces's popularity is growing day by day, I think they should take an effort to provide better English statements.

          Either round should be unrated or submissions must be retested based on the problem statement.

            If it gets retested, a lot of AC ones will get WA.

            I don't think this happened for the first time in CF. It happened a lot in the past too and none of those round was declared unrated...

        I fail to understand why it should be 13? If you arrive at 13, you won't be served, because t_f is 14 and 13+3 is > 14?? This complies with the problem statement.

          "If the receptionist would stop working within t minutes, he stops serving visitors (other than the one he already serves)."
          This implies that even if you arrive at 13 you will be served.

            No, he will already stop serving new visitors after 14-3 = 11 because then current time + t > 14! This is what it implies...

            "He already serves" not "he is serving". There is nothing wrong with the statement. Check your English.

How is the rating calculated? I ranked 21st in the contest,but the rating dropped by 20! I'm the only one whose rating dropped among the top 88 people,including those whose ratings were initially higher or lower than me.In particular,there are many people whose initial ratings were higher than me,scored lower than me in this contest,but their ratings rose sharply!How could this happen?

We know about the issue with ratings, they will be rolled back and then updated properly. Don't worry.

long min = 0;
        long mins = ts+t;
        int pl = 0;
        for (; pl<n; pl++) {
            if ((ts+(pl)*t+t<=tf) && (ts+(pl)*t+t-(mas[pl]-1)<mins))
            {

I found a test case which is

3 1
0 1
3 -1
4 1
5 -1
Both my friends passed the problem, but have different output,
their submission are 24775420, 24775421
the first one output 2 5, which I think is correct, and the second one output -1
Do the sys test miss the test case like this?
