I hope you enjoyed this round!

Can anyone please tell, whats wrong with this solution ? https://codeforces.com/contest/1679/submission/157267162 WA on test 5

Thanks

I believe that E would be much easier to understand with a formal definition.

Let $$$k$$$ be the number of '?' in $$$s$$$. For a given string $$$t$$$ with unique characters, let $$$sub_t(s)$$$ be the set of all $$$|t|^k$$$ ways to substitute a character from $$$t$$$ in each '?' in $$$s$$$. Let $$$f(s)$$$ be the number of pairs $$$1 \le i \le j \le n$$$ such that the string $$$s[i : j]$$$ is a palindrome, where $$$s[i : j]$$$ is the substring of $$$s$$$ from $$$s[i]$$$ to $$$s[j]$$$. Given $$$q$$$ queries of string $$$t_i$$$, compute and print

for each query.

It removes a lot of ambiguity from the statement, and is easier to understand.

E good problem,but didn't solve.qwq

It seems that segment tree solution is acceptable for C but much slower. I don't know if it is because segment tree itself is so slow? Or is segment tree theoretically acceptable for this problem?(the time limit of 1000ms is a bit short for segment tree solution)

My submissions: TLE 157157377 157159053 AC 157166835

Pretty sure it's just cin/cout throwing a hissy fit. My submission used scanf/printf and passed without any compiler optimizations at 343ms. 157161379

yeah I noticed that I ACed after ios::sync_with_stdio(false)

This happened the same to me. Are there any reasons behind using it? I never ever used ios::sync_with_stdio(false), what does it do anyway?

I used this stack overflow link but it wasn't clear much

In a nutshell: Sets whether the standard C++ streams are synchronized to the standard C streams after each input/output operation.

It is often recommended to use scanf/printf instead of cin/cout for fast input and output. However, you can still use cin/cout and achieve the same speed as scanf/printf by including the following in your main() function: ios_base::sync_with_stdio(false);

Hey sorry to disturb, but I too used segment tree but with rangeSum, here is my submission can you please tell me why would it give me WA on tc 3

Might be your segtree since mine runs under 300 ms.

https://codeforces.com/contest/1679/submission/157174312

I will improve my segment tree. thx!

Thank you for sharing your implementation :D, I could improve my segment tree. JIC is here: https://codeforces.com/contest/1679/submission/157264397

Actually it's pashka's segment tree from his segment tree EDU tutorial

😄

Hey sorry to disturb, but I too used segment tree but with rangeSum, here is my submission can you please tell me why would it give me WA on tc 3

Hey. Even i tried range sum approach using segment tree. But I'm getting WA on test 3.. Can u tell how you corrected it and got AC.

Take a look at Ticket 16173 from

CF Stressfor a counter example.thank you

Take a look at Ticket 16175 from

CF Stressfor a counter example.In first question i am unable to understand that how in case of minimization of buses the answer is n/6...please explain

Since n cannot be odd, n should be even. Also n cannot be equal to 2. So n should be from the set {4,6,8,10.....}. Which means when divided by 6 the remainder will be either 0 or 2 or 4. Let x = n/6 and r be the remainder. If r is 0, you have all busses with 6 wheels, answer is x. If r = 4 you have x busses with 6 wheels and left with 4 wheels. So you can add a bus with 4 wheels, final answer becomes x+1. If r = 2, you have x busses with 6 wheels and note that x >= 1. You can remove a bus with 6 wheels and add 2 busses of 4 wheels. Answer again become x-1+(2) = x+1. So simply put it will be the ceil of n/6.

Can I ask that in Div2C, how we can use binary search to check whether that sub rectangle will be attacked by the rock?

In problem C, why this submission is WA and the other one is AC if they are pretty similar, I literally copy my previous segment tree methods into a struct with a few improvements. I couldn't find the bug :'(

can someone tell me why my C got FST

Problem C:can someone tell me on which test case my code fails it give me WA on test 3 [27284th token]

Click here157271735You can have more than one rook in a row/column. Since you are using your boolean array as an indicator of whether there is a rook in a particular row/column or not, you need to set/unset only when there is a new rook in that row/column or the current rook removed was the only rook of that row/column

Problem C :Hi, can any one tell me what I'm doing wrong, I'm trying to solve the problem using BIT where the first pointer is 0 if no rock in line|column and 1 meaning at least a rock in the line|column, and the second one is the number of counts of rocks in that line|column , plz help me I toke more then 4 hours not finding the mistake.

i think it's clear since you have to add 1 if the counter is 1 (was 0), or add -1 if the counter is 0 (was 1).

I got it, Thanks my friend for helping me ^_^.

Can someone please tell me what is wrong with my code for the problem C. https://codeforces.com/contest/1679/submission/157259885

You have not considered the case for multiple rooks in row/column

Can someone please explain why my submission for C is giving TLE. 157292933

Thanks

use fast input output I got AC with your code, Time Limit is too tight

Do you have information about where I can find the solution of fast IO for c++?

ios_base::sync_with_stdio(0); cin.tie(0); cout.tie(0); Add these 2 lines in your main Function, you can read more about it Stack Overflow

RMQ using segment treestruct SegTree {

};

I don't know what to arr.assign()(is it also 0?) for range max queries. I hope the rest of the changes are correct for range max queries. Can anyone help me with it please?

Why this submission gets time limit. Can any one explain? I just run loop of O(n+q). Problem: B My submission link 157195608

This is O(n + n*q) as you are making a new vector in each query!!

Which test case I am missing in problem B? 157192323. I am getting WA on test 2 with message: wrong answer 58999th numbers differ — expected: '32583263977149', found: '32583727669172'.

Failing testcase: Ticket 7208My logic to A solution started from:

initial equation: $$$4 \cdot x + 6 \cdot y = n$$$

a note: $$$4 \cdot 3 = 6 \cdot 2$$$, so we can replace an equation with $$$4 \cdot x + 4 \cdot 3 \cdot y = n$$$ (if $$$y$$$ is even) or $$$4 \cdot x + 4 \cdot 3 \cdot y + 6 = n$$$ (if $$$y$$$ is odd).

We can check if $$$y$$$ is even, what possible when $$$n$$$ mod 4 = 0, and if $$$y$$$ is odd, what is possible when $$$(n - 6)$$$ mod 4 = 0. Otherwise (and in case with $$$n = 2$$$) there is no answer.

the author said for

Problem D:`it's a well-known classical problem.`

Can anyone suggest some similar problems or the classical one that the author is talking about?Here are some problems which are quite similar to problem D from this round:

EDU 128 C

EDU 126 C

He meant the dp problem, not the binary search problem

In problem-4 it is mentioned that, It's guaranteed that graph doesn't contain loops and multi-edges. I want to know what is meant by loop? Is it different from cycle?

loop is an edge that connects a vertex to itself

oh ok now i understand. Thanks!

how does this code works for B

## include <bits/stdc++.h>

## define ll long long

using namespace std;

int main() {

## ifndef ONLINE_JUDGE

## endif

} The time complexity is o(n+n*q) n and q is 2*10^5 so how is it able to work .The clear function takes o(n) time and if we just replace clear function with a for loop with makes the element of the array equal to x it shows TLE . Pls somebody who knows or implemented the same kind solution help me to understand ?? sorry for my pathetic english xd

Yes, clearing the map takes $$$O(N)$$$, but it isn't $$$O(N+NQ)$$$, because sum of all sizes of map can be at most Q (at most 1 element can be added to map during each iteration). That is why this solution works in $$$O(N+QlogQ)$$$.

how is log(q) coming I can't get it. suppose after initialising the array the first query is of type 2 then u have to remove the array by mp.clear() similarly if all query is of type 2 then would"nt it take n*q ??

$$$QlogQ$$$ appears from calling map, because every call of map is made in $$$O(logSZ)$$$, where $$$SZ$$$ is size of the map.

Let's suppose, you have 2 elements in array, then you cleared it, added another 4 elements, and cleared it again. The first clearing method was done in 2 operations, and second was done in 4 operations. So, if we write down sizes of map before each clearing, let it be $$$sz_1, sz_2, ... , sz_k$$$. It easy to see that $$$\sum_{i=1}^ksz_i \le Q$$$. So all clearing operations take at most $$$O(Q)$$$.

PS: I actually don't know, is clearing is done in $$$O(SZ)$$$ or in $$$O(SZlogSZ)$$$ :thinking: :/

Video Solution for Problem D.

Can anyone post the editorial for C in easy words?

If there is a query box with width W and height H, then to cover each cell there must be at least one rook in each row in the box, or at least one rook in each column in the box. So, if there is a row and a column in the box which don't have a rook in them, then there is a cell that is not covered. Otherwise, all cells are covered.

We can do two(one for columns, one for rows) Segment Trees with checking, if there is a zero in the segment. If we add rook, we add +1 to the column and row in the trees. If we remove rook, than we add -1.

If you don't know segment tree, you can also solve it by just using set ( one for column and one for row ) , let the set store the rows for which cnt[i]=0 , so if we remove a rook with {x,y} , we can add x back to row set if we have 0 rook in x row , and if we add a rook to set , we can erase x from row set , same goes for column set .

This can be solved by using Square Decomposition too. Strangely enough, I've seen Segment Tree solutions which ran slower than my solution (These have almost the same optimization as mine), despite Seg tree has the complexity of O(N log N), and Square Decom has the complexity of O(N sqrt N). 165773252

Thanks for interesting problems!) In problem C I have the solution that has TL3 (https://codeforces.com/contest/1679/submission/157589950) without writing the "ios_base::sync_with_stdio(0);cin.tie(0);cout.tie(0);" line at the beginnig of programm. But the same solution with the "ios" line (https://codeforces.com/contest/1679/submission/157589989) works correctly. That's kinda sad when something like this happens(

Failing testcase: Ticket 7271Thanks. Have found the error. Problem solved.

Hi, Could someone please help me out? Am not able to understand why https://codeforces.com/contest/1679/submission/157598442 throws TLE in test 7.

Approach: 1. Binary search over possible answer 2. for a potential solution x, build graph with only edges where both vertices are valid (a[node] <= x) O(m) 3. Dfs to check for cycle- 2 times dfs (To compute tin, tout for nodes and then to check) O(m+n) 4. If not cycle dfs to get the longest path O(m+n)

Complexity is be O(m+n)*log(MAX)

For problem C, if using C++, what data structure is used to store freeRows? If we use vector, insert an element in order will need O(n) time complexity? If we use set or list, we cannot do binary search for query type 3?

Seems we should just use "set"? But I got TLE: https://codeforces.com/contest/1679/submission/157773752

I see most acceptable solution uses BIT. Any acceptable solution uses the algorithm described in the tutorial?

Check this

Thanks! But it is interesting that it is TLE now with the same implementation.

The issue is not due to set (which is very fast), but because your I/O (cin, cout) is too slow (due to syncing with stdio). In particular, the

inputmay have a very large number of values, so the syncing delay causes TLE.For fast I/O with cin and cout, you should add the following two lines to the start of your main function (or anywhere before the first use of cin/cout):

`ios_base::sync_with_stdio(false);`

`cin.tie(NULL);`

Note that if you do this, then you shouldn't use scanf/printf alongside cin/cout, since they are not synchronized (e.g., a later scanf would read the same data that an earlier cin already read). This is fine if you don't use scanf/printf anyway.Yes, I know your comment is two months old, but I noticed that even your latest submissions continue to use cin/cout without disabling the synchronization, so I advise you to add those two lines to your template before you encounter another TLE in the future due to I/O syncing delays.

Hi, thank you so much for the excellent explanation and suggestion! Really appreciate :)

does it say "Unable to parse markup [type=CF_MATHJAX" just for me when the editorial button is clicked on problem C?

A wonderful contest with problems of different level, and they are expecially suitable for a Chinese like me to improve my skill for the coming competitions. The editorial is also up to standard.

can somebody provide answer to A problem. i'm not able to solve even after reading tutorial. messing something....

Wtf????

There were some troubles with Russian editorials for problems B-F. We fixed them, Sorry for such a big delay.
