Solved 12/15 all by myself during the contest. I get stuck on problem I for a long time.
Could you post the problems in the gym so that everyone can practice?

    I also solved 12 during my test of the contest and didn't get I.

    Major hint for I

    Also you can submit on the problems if you modify the url to remove the contest part. Like this: https://rutgers24.kattis.com/problems/bracketguessing (note this might only work for people that participated in the contest? I'm not sure)
