CC turned 1100 years!

We invite you to participate in CodeChef’s March Long Challenge, this Friday, 5th March, from 15:00 IST onwards.

The contest will be open for 10 days, i.e., until 15th March.

The March Long Challenge is going to have Codenation Innovation Labs, Quadeye Securities, Dialpad, and BetterPlace as the official contest recruiters! Codenation Innovation Labs is hiring programmers for the Software Development Engineer role and its Junior Trilogy University (Intern Programme). Quadeye is on the lookout for brilliant Full Stack Developers in CodeChef’s community. Dialpad is looking to attract top talent from CodeChef for the role of Software Engineer. BetterPlace is looking to hire competent coders from the community for SDE 1 and SDE 2 roles.

Also, if you have some original and engaging problem ideas, and you’re interested in them being used in CodeChef's contests, you can share them here.

Joining me on the problem setting panel are:


We are doubling the happiness this Long Challenge.

Since it's our birthday month, the Chef is in a generous mood. We shall be giving away prizes to double the number of winners than usual. For example: Instead of Top 10, Top 20 will get the winner laddus. This is applicable across all category winners.

There are also special prizes for women:

  • Div 1: top 10 females (300 laddus)
  • Div 2: top 6 females (150 laddus)
  • Div 3: top 6 females (150 laddus)

The winners can claim cool CodeChef goodies using these laddus. Know more here.

The video editorials of the problems will be available on our YouTube channel as soon as the contest ends. Subscribe to get notifications about our new editorials.

Good Luck!
Hope to see you participating!!
Happy Programming!!

Are we need to find k-th maximum value in MAXTOPO already by modulo, like answer<1e9+7. Or we need to find maximum value and then take it by modulo?
