Hi,

I started doing CP few months back. i am facing issues while solving A and B problems. Usually i crack the logic if problem is implementation based , but when its a maths problem, its become next to impossible for me to solve that problem.

i need some advices from you guys , if you faced these same issues in the beginning of your journey then please let me know how you handeled this.

sometimes a thought comes into my mind that i should quit CP as i think my IQ is very low!!

Auto comment: topic has been updated by Rippahh (previous revision, new revision, compare).start from very easy A, B problems, you can sort the problems by the number of people who solved it, try to solve problems that have been solved by many people and then make it harder and harder, if you can't solve any problem after thinking, read the editorial. If stills you are not able to solve it, open the standings and watch the codes of the contest winners, they solve it fast => they come up with easy algorithm and code. Don't think that your iq is low => you can't become better, everyone started from where you are and became better by practicing.

Thanks a lot sir!! yeah i am solving easier problems but whenever i try to solve a lil harder problem(usually in maths problems) my mind stop working , even sometimes editorials also dont help! but from now i'll start observing top perfromers code, thanks for the tip :)

learn some olympiad math for beginners, optionally basics of number theory and combinatorics.

just don’t wind yourself up mentally, in fact, you will succeed and I believe that everyone can turn red with good efforts, im also trying, Istarted CP two month ago and when i started, i also couldnt solve most A and B
