hello codeforces,

i am glad to invite you all to my practice mashups, which i am going to start from tomorrow.
it is mainly prepared for those who aspire to become masters (be it candidates, experts, div 2 guys, div 3 guys, div 4 guys, or even an inactive master). so, the mashups will have mostly 1900+ rated problems.
i will share the mashup links through the comments of this blog, so that everyone can access it.

excited to see you guys at the standings.

Glad to inform you guys, that I have finally became a master. Now, I don't know what to do next, maybe I could come up with a new blog "Mashups for aspiring IMs" ? Lol.

Do anyone of you have any other interesting ideas for me or the community ?

can someone explain problem c of 11th Dec that why is the probability of a student who reads message mi
is ki/t if t>ki ?
shouldn't it be ncr(t,ki-1)/ncr(t,ki) where we are fixing the message which the ith student to read.
In question it was given all k sets are equiprobable but I couldn't understand why it is the reason for probability as ki/t ?

    Sorry for late reply, but it's good you asked this. Actually, when you're fixing the message $$$m_i$$$, then you have to choose rest $$$k_i - 1$$$ messages out of $$$t - 1$$$ messages (note that total messages would also decrease by 1). So, the numerator in your formula was wrong.

    greys can try to solve solve 1200-2000 problems. (+500) of your rating is recommended range to maintain balance between upsolving and not getting demotivated
