Can lightening strike twice? Yes it can!

When I first went to Div 1 in 2011, I went to bed happily. Next morning, I saw this post from Mike: http://codeforces.com/blog/entry/3064. The new rating system adjusted my rating, and my "color change" has only lasted about 12 hours or so. I remember the famous line from Mike's post, "but let's look ahead with optimism — new victories will bring the lost color back color and help to win the proud title of a Grandmaster!"

Let's not become grandmaster for the time being. I later managed to become Candidate Master somewhere in 2012, during my last year of ACM ICPC. After that, I became irregular in Codeforces. A few months back, I decided to take part in the CF rounds regularly, and in the last round, successfully regained my position in Div 1 again, and guess what happened next? You guessed it! The rating system changed again, and I was sent back to Div 2 again!

I understand that the changes are made for a reason, and I'm fine with that. Wishing high ratings to all the participants. :)

Hi guys. I'm getting Wrong Answer for Test 10 in Problem D of  the CodeForces 40 Round. Here's my code http://ideone.com/be1hs

I used a Dynamic Programming approach to solve this problem. My states here are
1) the current row position of my pawn
2) the current column position of my pawn
3) the remainder of the sum of all the numbers that the pawn has covered so far.

Upon termination, my recursive function will store the biggest number ( divisible by k + 1 ) that can be achieved, coming to a particular position with that particular remainder.

Regards
tarif
