Why is F given 1200 score...

Wish I won't drop back to 1 Kyu.

emm...

Stuck at C for more than 45 minutes before trying D and realizing that it is pretty doable.

Is there any O(T) solution for E?

Oh I found such a submission. I only thought of solutions for S=2k,3k,3k+2, but there's a simple solution for S=2k+1.

In fact only one in-contest submission used extended gcd while the other 12 are $$$O(T)$$$

my last formula of my sol is similar to editorial >>why it give me wa on B

my solutionBecause ans may not be even before you divide by 2. Correct answer is floor(ans/2).

okay thanks>>I changed the mod to 2 * mod and divide by 2 in the last and did not use 2^mod-2

can anyone explain about this? It seems that there exict a O(1) solution of problem E. https://atcoder.jp/contests/arc167/submissions/46638239

Can anyone get me clear on the concept behind B? i did not get the editorial

Can anyone please explain why is my submission getting

TLEfor some cases where as it is running under2 msfor all other cases.I'm doing exactly what editorial says :

for all powers of prime factors, finally dividing it by 2.B * product of (e_i * B + 1)Overflow probably

Yes, indeed it is. for loop condition : j * j <= A got overflowed thus making it endless loop.

Thanks a lot for the help!!

why my solution fails?: problem B

my approach: we gonna factorize A and focus on one prime from the factorization: I need to know how mcuh p there is in the product of the divisors of a^b suppose a=p^k * .. so the number of this prime in the product is: (sum from 1 to k*b)* product of (ki +1) where ki is the power of the otehr primes sequencially.

after that I just divide by k why this fails? : https://atcoder.jp/contests/arc167/submissions/46638531

It's wrong. You don't divide by k, you multiple by B then divide by 2. You also have to make sure if the number is odd before dividing by 2. This is doable by checking if all the numbers you're multiplying are odd

Can someone explain solution of problem C?

I think problem E would be a good math problem, but I don't think it's a good CP problem. It's so tricky that you can find 4 people who's rating is under 1600 among 13 people who solve the problem during the contest:(

About Problem B :Can anyone tell me why I set the mod 998244353 the answer was WA,but when I changed it to 998244353*2 ,it was AC ?
