On Sunday, August 6th, 22:00 IST, we will hold the 2nd elimination for IndiaHacks (some more details here). The top 900 individuals who qualified through previous rounds will have the opportunity to participate in this round. The top 25 global participants and top 25 Indian participants will advance to the final round. The link to the contest is here.
After the official round is over, the next morning, on Monday, August 7th, 11:35 IST, we'll hold an unofficial unrated mirror here on Codeforces. This mirror will have ICPC rules. For participants of the official round, please hold off on discussing the problems publicly until after this mirror is over.
I was the author of the problems in this set, and I hope you will enjoy the problems. I would like to thank zemen for testing the set, Arpa for writing editorials, r3gz3n for his help on the HackerEarth side, KAN for helping us set up the mirror contest, and of course MikeMirzayanov for the great Polygon/Codeforces platform.
The round will consist of 6 problems and you will have 3 hours to complete them. Please note that the problems will be randomly arranged in both rounds, since I couldn't figure out how to sort them by difficulty. Be sure to read all the problems.
UPD1: Updated time of official round and posted link to contest.
UPD2: We should have updated the leaderboard to accept solutions that followed the first version of the first problem. We have also increased the number of finalists to 60 total (30 global + 30 indian) based on this new leaderboard.
UPD3: Here is the list of qualifiers. Congratulations to everyone.
