Educational Codeforces Round 11

Revision en2, by Edvard, 2016-04-09 22:27:50

Hello, Codeforces!

Educational Codeforces Round 11 will take place on 8 april 2016 at 18:00 MSK for the first and the second divisions.

<The changes in the last paragraph>

The round will be unrated for all users and it will be held with extented ACM ICPC rules. You will have two hours to solve six problems. After that you will have one day to hack any solution you want. You will have access to copy any solution and test it locally.

If you have ideas for some problems or maybe already prepared problems that you can't use in rounds or official competitions, you can write to me.

It seems that it is harder to invent interesting simple problems (like A and B) than difficult ones. So don't be afraid to suggest interesting simple or very simple tasks (of course the difficult tasks are also needed). Please send only the problems for which you know the solution with clear statement (the story is not required). And also please add one or two samples to make the problem statement more clear.

</The changes in the last paragraph>

The problemset was suggested by Codeforces users. The problem А was suggested by Ali Ibrahim New_Horizons. The problem B was suggested by Srikanth Bhat srikkbhat. Mohammad Amin Raeisi aminra sent the problem C. The problem D was suggested by Sadegh Mahdavi smahdavi4 a long ago. The problem E is the last (the fourth) problem suggested by Lewin Gan lewin. The problem F is the last (if I'm not wrong the third) problem suggested by Kamil Debowski Errichto.

Thanks a lot to them and all others who are sending the problems! At this point I've checked all the problems sent to me (except maybe for the problems sent in last week). I hope that I've replied to all of you. I have a list with all problems sent to me, so be sure I don't forget about your problem.

The problems F was prepared by Kamil Debowski Errichto. Other problems was prepared by me (Edvard Davtyan). Thanks to Maria Belova Delinur for checking the English statements. The problems was tested by users suggested them, respectively: Ali Ibrahim New_Horizons, Srikanth Bhat srikkbhat, Mohammad Amin Raeisi aminra, Sadegh Mahdavi smahdavi4, Lewin Gan lewin and Kamil Debowski Errichto. Thanks a lot to all of them!

I hope you will enjoy the problems! I'm considering the possibility to copy the problem E with larger constraints as problem G. What do you think about that?

Good luck and have fun!

P.S.: The bus from the problem B.

UPD: The contest is finished. Congrats to kezsulap and uwi with the win and halyavin with 93 hacks! The editorial is ready.
