Hello Codeforces!

We are pleased to invite you all to participate in Codeforces Round 891 (Div. 3), which will start on Aug/07/2023 17:35 (Moscow time).

The format of the event will be like any Div. 3 rounds:

  • 6-8 tasks;

  • ICPC rules with a penalty of 10 minutes for an incorrect submission;

  • 12-hour phase of open hacks after the end of the round (hacks do not give additional points)

  • after the end of the open hacking phase, all solutions will be tested on the updated set of tests, and the ratings recalculated

  • by default, only "trusted" participants are shown in the results table.

We encourage participants with a rating of 1600+ not to create new accounts but to participate unofficially.

Only trusted participants of the third division will be included in the official standings table. This is a forced measure for combating unsporting behavior. To qualify as a trusted participant of the third division, you must:

  • take part in at least five rated rounds (and solve at least one problem in each of them),
  • do not have a point of 1900 or higher in the rating.

Regardless of whether you are a trusted participant of the third division or not, if your rating is less than 1600 (or you are a newcomer/unrated), then the round will be rated for you.

Problems have been created and written by our team: FBI, Skillful_Wanderer, SashaT9 and Pa_sha.

We would like to thank

Good luck!

UPD: There was an error on problem F. We fixed the tests and rejudged solutions . We apologize for that. It only affected a few people whose solutions passes all tests now. Also some hacks were already added to the tests and broke some of solutions.
