It remains less than 10 hours before Codeforces Beta Round #98 (Div. 2). This round was prepared for you by me, proposed the ideas of the problems. Traditionally, RAD made sure that there is no bugs and that the statements are normal, and Delinur translated the statements into English. Thanks to them!
If you decide to participate in the round you have to help the boy Polycarpus and his classmate Innocentius in all the difficulties they face. The more you help them, the higher you will be placed in the standing.
I hope the problems will be interesting not only for Div. 2 participants, but the participants rated higher than 1699.
I will continue the story about myself (beginning of story in the previous blog entry). Besides programming I love sports. Within a few years before I started writing code, I was seriously involved in rowing. And before that I was going in for almost all sports :-): karate, soccer, hockey and so much more interesting. Now I love (especially at the training camp) to play volleyball and table tennis. I decided to prepare this round despite the fact that during the past two weeks, much has changed inside Codeforces and I took part in this.
Following the fashion trends I have changed my avatar.
Good luck for all on the round!
Contest is finished, results are final, ratings are updated.
