কি অবস্থা মামা? (That's Bengali for "What's up dude?")

I am super excited to invite you to participate in Codeforces Round #735 (Div. 2) which will be held on Jul/29/2021 17:35 (Moscow time). This round is rated for future LGM participants whose current rating is $$$\le 2099$$$.

I would like to thank -

The statements are super short and I have tried to make the pretests strong. I encourage you to read all the problems and solve them all.

I would like to dedicate this contest to the fallen king, my father, who died two months ago. May he and all the departed good souls rest in peace.

Scoring distribution: $$$750 - 1250 - 1750 - 2000 - 3000$$$.

Don't leave a single question easy make all of them hard. So I can finally quit! first question take 2 min rest --------- its like an appreciation token for participation. Codeforces is a platform where top 2000 people solve question rest all see the standing page after doing A question. Again div zero contest. There is no coolness in setting a hard contest , it should be a balanced one . increment in my preparation <<<<<<<<<<<<< increment in hardness. A year ago when I knew nothing i was able to solve at least two A B and C if its of graph or standard one. Now after months of practice I'm able to solve only A . A contest is of 2: 00 hr for me its of 5 minutes . Thanks codeforces for demotivating me again! For people less than 1500 its is buzzer round who solve A faster. thanks queueforces for ruining this buzzer round also.

    prob C is easy if u just generate xors for yourself, it's some weird series of number, but in some time you should be able to find pattern in it (i started this too late)

    i found out that for numbers 0-15, 16-31, 32-47 etc difference between MAX and MIN is always 16

    just look at it:

    n = 3 m = 47

    3 2 1 0 7 6 5 4 11 10 9 8 15 14 13 12 19 18 17 16 23 22 21 20 27 26 25 24 31 30 29 28 35 34 33 32 39 38 37 36 43 42 41 40 47 46 45 44

    n = 20 m = 47

    20 21 22 23 16 17 18 19 28 29 30 31 24 25 26 27 4 5 6 7 0 1 2 3 12 13 14 15 8 9 10 11 52 53 54 55 48 49 50 51 60 61 62 63 56 57 58 59

    it must have some sort of pattern

    7 weeks ago, # ^ |
      Vote: I like it +18 Vote: I do not like it

    Only divisors of N-1 are important. Find array d[i] = number of arrays where i divides all elements (the answer is easy to find from that array). d[1] = 2^(N-1), all other d[i]'s are either 0 or 1 (proven by the following checking algorithm): start from leaves, it is uniquely determined whether that node is selected before it's 'parent' (k cannot divide both x and x+1). If it divides neither it's 0, if the check finishes it's 1.

        To be honest, that was only an intuition during the contest, basically, for every edge you have options for which ending node you select first. Since it's a tree there will be no cycles, so it's a good ordering. My first idea was $$$N!$$$, but that didn't work with sample. Probably double counting something. Definitely not a proof, let's wait for editorial :)

          As _Ash__ wrote below, it's simply the number of ways to orient all edges. In different ways there are different arrays, that simply follows from a mathematical induction like one you mentioned — starting from leaves and rising up.

    You can transform the situation a bit like this: You have a tree, and you have to make each edge directed. The value of each node is its indegree. The problem becomes a lot more approachable now.

Difficulty in my opinion: E > B > C > D > A, B is my nightmare, the most right thing that I do is to skip B after 40 minutes of struggling.

In problem D you just need to know one trick: A string that contains n number of "a" and n-1 number of "a" separated by others (like 'bc' or 'b') can satisfy the condition.

    Check all pairs from the right-most one (N, N — 1).
    As K cannot be greater than 100 and Ai || Aj will always be strictly less than 2N, a brute-force solution should work.
    The loop is to be broken when the maximum possible value for the current pair is lower than the current max value (max. possible value would be i * j — k * 0).

Wow, that was a very beautiful E problem, thank you! All around the round was nice, though for me D and B should've been swapped in difficulty...

Also, codeforces is very weird with rating around 2100, it's much easier to drop to high 2000's and get a bunch of rating in div2, than to get rating in div1 with low 2100's.
