      The word is actually "standard". I've seen it get misspelled a lot on this site, it's about time I let people know how to spell it correctly.

        This is a common bug for all Russians :) In fact, the word "standard" in Russian is spelled like "standartny" with "t" but not "d". And even if you know the correct English spelling sometimes it may be hard to remember the correct ending.

      sum(x,y,z,t)= (s[x]+...+s[y])*(s[z]+..+s[t]) = a

      you can solve this by fixed [x] and [y] and pre calculating [z] and [t]

      nothing about Range Tree i guess.

              k goes from 0 to 9....

              Why should I return false like that if I am already doing the repeated number exclusion with the set?

              EDIT: By doing the vv.size()==k+1 I am assuring that my function also returns correct values, yes or no?

            What if k == 0 and numbers on liste equals to zero too? Your programm return automatically 0 when k == 0 But for this input:

            2 0
            0
            1
            

            It should return 1 instead of 0

      No leading zeroes are allowed, from my understanding:

      "The first line contains integers n and k (1 ≤ n ≤ 100, 0 ≤ k ≤ 9). The i-th of the following n lines contains integer ai without leading zeroes (1 ≤ ai ≤ 10^9)."

      So that wouldn't be a valid test....

        No leading zeroes are allowed, so it can be like this:

        1 6
        12345670
        

        Answer still should be 1.

        MISTAKE: k-good number should contain each digits no more than k, but if number contains each digits no more than k AND other digits more than k, it still be k-good number.

The bad description of problem D div2(problem B div1) really makes me mad!!!!

I read it more than 5 times and still don't know what are you talking about, until I found the Note at the bottom and read the Note more than 5 times.

How can you use nothing to exchange something?

You should say:

Set x can contain nothing.

Set x and Set y can't contain the same item instead of the shit of "Note that each item is one of a kind and that means that you cannot exchange set {a, b} for set {v, a}. However, you can always exchange set x for any set y, unless there is item p, such that p occurs in x and p occurs in y.".

"John knows that his city has n items in total." Ok, there are n items in the city, but how many items in the market?

    You observe that in a rectangle the sum is (Ax1+A(x1 + 1)+...+Ax2)*(Ay1+A(y1 + 1)+...+Ay2), where x1,y1,x2,y2 are the corners, and the maximum sum of a sequence is 9*n.

    Range Tree. U just need to find all x1, y1, x2, y2: sum(x1, y1) * sum(x2, y2) == a. But you should do it smart: 1)Find all x, y: a % sum(x, y) == 0 2)for each of them find all x1, y1: sum(x, y) * sum(x1, y1) == a

    It seems like this solution is )(n ** 4 * log(a)(because of Range Tree)), but it is O(n**2 * k * log(a)), where k is number of divisors of a(close to log(a)).

      No.You just keep a vector ap where ap[i]=number of sequences of sum i, i<=9*n. For a subsequence [i,j], if A%sum(i,j)==0, you add at result ap[A/sum(i,j)].Take care at the case when sum(i,j)=0 and when A=0

In problem A

When writing Let's call a number k-good if it contains all digits not exceeding k (0, ..., k).

Here, doesn't it mean that a k-good number can't have any digit greater than k ???

So far I know, it means, a k-good number can have all digits without those which are greater than k. Any digit in that number can't exceed 'k'.

It has given me a lot of pain.

    You cannot assume that it does not contain digits greater than k as long as it has not been mentioned in the statement.

    Actually, you just cannot assume something when it has not been specified in the problem statement.

        c(A) = c(A\C + C) = c(A\C) + c(C) >= c(B) — d = c(B\C) + c(C) — d

        c(A\C) >= c(B\C) — d

        We can substitute set A\C with set B\C, thus turning A into B.

        Therefore, for any two sets A and B such that c(A) + d >= C(B) we can turn one into another in one step.

        Every step in our algorithm does exactly that, so every move we make is legal.

        Does that explain it?

          I thought we have to swap whole set we have currently with some other set. Really poor problem statement. :(

    Mmm. My solution constructs correct set with k' ≥ k elements. It's possible to prove, that we can obtain correct set for any k. But then I use statistic to prove, that I can obtain correct set with exactly k elements. I will write about it in editorial.

k-good numbers input 1 0 1000000000

Output

1

really 1<0?

    It must contain all digits who doesn't exceed k, so if 0 wasn't present, the number was invalid. But it can contain digits who exceed k, that's not a problem. So, yes , 1 > 0, but 1 0 1000000000 should get for output 1

      very bad translation, it is k-good if it contains all of (0,..,k) was better, I'm not American by the way

      kind of know the reason. "the number contains all digit from 0 to k " is not equal to " the number only can contains all digit from 0 to k.". I should not have this assumption.

        Actually problem is in "not exceeding k (0, ..., k)". There was no need of this portion.

        When writing Let's call a number k-good if it contains all digits not exceeding k (0, ..., k). it means, a k-good number can have all digits without those which are greater than k. Any digit in that number can't exceed 'k'.

        Anyway which happened it was to be happened. No doubt, short description of last contest was nice to see. But we also hope better translation from this great community.

tanks for the contest. this was to this date my best contest and I don't think I am ever going to get a better rank in codeforces. I didn't like problem C, I solved using simple backtrack. problem A and B and D were great.

      Suppose you know GHD divides some element a[i] of the array. You can then take the gcd of a[i] and all other elements, and count how many times each of the divisors of a[i] also divides other elements of the array (should be easy to do in n log n). The largest one that appears more than n/2 times is the GHD.

      Now, the question is finding such an element a[i] quickly. But as GHD divides at least half of the a[i]s, the chance that you take an a[i] that has the required property is over 50%! So just take a[i]s randomly until you run out of time.

        for (int i = 0; i < d.size(); i++) {
                 for (int j = 0; j < i; j++) {
                    if (d[i] % d[j] == 0) cnt[d[j]] += cnt[d[i]]; 
                 }
              }
        

        I see such chuck of your code. It doesn't seem to be O(NlogN) as announced in your short editorial, it's rather O(NlogN + (number of divisors of a[i])2 which consumes much more time.

        Can you tell how you're going to process this part of solution in O(NlogN) time?

          Maximum number of divisors for a number up to 1012 is less than 7000. So it is not considerably worse than O(NlogN) part I think.

            It's true assumption when one is trying to code working solution during a contest but what if the numbers will be up to 10^16? You still we be able to factor one number quite quickly and to calculate all GCDs quickly but the part with 2 loops to traverse list of divisors will be bottle-neck in such solution.

            I'm just trying to figure out better approach to solve this problem.

          vector d represent the divisors of a[idx] which is theoretical have at most 2*sqrt(a[idx]) elements. but practical it is much less.

      if(a%(it->first) ==0 && m.find(a/(it->first))!=m.end() ){
    

    It looks like you divide by zero in this string.

    i think it maybe because you are trying to compute a%(it->first) and a/(it->first), but the value of it->first maybe zero if the string contains a 0 character.

at the very beginning i got problem A,B done within half an hour while just before the contest end,i wrongly took the lower bound of ai as 0 and think i may be able to hack some careless guys who also didnt handle the data 0,so i quickly submitted problem A again with speical judgement for the case when ai is 0,...then the system reply tell me ai must be >= 1.and my rank in room suddenly drop from 8 to 16.. it really proves that evil will be rewarded with evil.ToT

Is there someone fix the description of problem D. Free Market? How to understand this statements: "Note that each item is one of a kind and that means that you cannot exchange set {a, b} for set {v, a}. However, you can always exchange set x for any set y, unless there is item p, such that p occurs in x and p occurs in y.". For the samples, second one, why 2 days? one change a day, at least three days? input 3 5 1 2 3 output 6 2

How could those get AC?
