The round lasts 2.5 hours and is rated for both divisions.
What is Meet IT?
We are a family of enthusiastic and motivated young people passionate about programming and mathematics. We build a community where people learn together, motivate and help each other.
- We teamwork, not compete,
- Active learning is more effective than passive,
- We all work on the same goal: a better education for everyone,
- We don’t teach people; we show them how to discover by themselves,
- We are curious, ask questions, and explore,
- 1 hour practising is worth more than 10 hours watching someone else
How to join Meet IT family?
Meet IT family members worked hard over the last few months to provide you with our favourite challenges we came up with. We hope that you will enjoy them as much as we did :)
We are enthusiasts of short and clear problem statements, strong pretests, and happy participants!
Every effort is valuable for us, and therefore I'd like to thank everyone who has contributed to the creation of this round:
- Co-founders of Meet IT: Mateusz and Paweł for guiding Meet IT projects and making things happen.

I'm also thankful for Swistakk for testing the round thoroughly. Sorry for forgetting! I wrote the announcement sometime before that. I totally don't get why he got downvoted, please give him as much contribution as he deserves!
There will be $$$6$$$ problems in each division, with $$$4$$$ problems shared. One of those will have a subtask!
We strongly recommend to read all the problems. You have been warned :)
