Hello Codeforces!

I am glad to invite you all to participate in regular Codeforces Round #352 that will take place on 11 May, 19:35 MSK. This will be my first round, so I hope that it will be interesting for you guys. There will be 5 problems for each division, and contest will last 2 hours.

Round wouldn't take place without the help of GlebsHP, I am very thankful for his great help. I also want to thank to Zlobober, winger, AlexFetisov, ikbal and ykaya for testing problems, to hasanb for inspiring me in a problem. I got great help and wise advices from all of them so this is their round too as much as mine. Of course I want to thank Mike and all others who puts his effort into Codeforces and Polygon systems. I don't know what we would do without this great platform.

UPD1: Score distribution:

Div. 2: 500-1000-1500-2000-2500

Div. 1: 500-1000-1500-2000-3000

UPD2: I will post editorial as soon as possible, thank you for your patience. Congratulations to winners!

    I believe TLE is worst, because you probably need to write a completely different algorithm to get AC, whereas in the case of a WA, you may find a bug quickly and then solve the problem.

      Test 3 might be something else(maybe precision or maybe maximum distance of bottle from both Adil and Bera was equal). But n=1 was definitely not in pretests.

    Binary search the maximum height after removing k blocks, then binary search the minimum depth you can fill with k blocks. More or less.

    Let's see if it passes the tests, but I just sorted the list and then searched from each end until I reached a value that was on the other side of the average (if I did this the difference was 0 or 1 depending on whether sum%n == 0) or you've removed too many blocks already, and then max-min

    My solution is not using binary search. I am calculating final number where highest and lowest number end after k days, if they cross over answer is 0 or 1. 0 when total sum can be evenly distributed among n numbers, 1 otherwise.

    For calculating final number where current highest ends, I keep on jumping to smaller non 1 frequency number if k is enough, else use up all of k and end up somewhere in middle (0 frequency number, this is breaking condition and at max happens only once). Maximum O(n) traverse.

    Similarly calculated final state where lowest number end.

    The thing is that when you have a lot of people and only 5 problems, it's really hard to judge how well you perform (unless you performed exceptionally good/bad) so even though at times it might seem unfair, in the long run it is fair. And it really doesn't matter what kind of judgement system you use there will always be someone that will think it's unfair.

    Lets us consider there is only person.

    After picking a bottle and throwing it in bin, then for all other bottles distances will be 2 * distance of that bottle from origin because you will start and end at origin after throwing each bottle. So first of all calculate sum of distance of all bottles and multiply it by 2.

    Then find the bottle which at has this value minimum (distance of bottle from person — distance of person from origin). Add this to answer.

    For two people, you can think of it in a similar way.

    Rev. 10   Vote: I like it 0 Vote: I do not like it

    Notice, that when Adil or Bera get to the recycling bin, they always walk the path to the bottle twice (it doesn't matter who is gathering bottles after the first recycled bottle).

    That is, imagine these are distances from bottles to the recycling bin:
    distFromBottleToBin[0] = ...
    distFromBottleToBin[1] = ...
    ...
    distFromBottleToBin[n - 1] = ...

    If Adil or Bera started standing right on the bottles i and j, the total distance would be:
    distFromBottleToBin[0] + 
    distFromBottleToBin[1] + ... + 
    1 ·distFromBottleToBin[i] + ... + 
    1 ·distFromBottleToBin[j] + ... + 
    distFromBottleToBin[n - 1].

    Since they are not standing on them you should add up additional cost of traveling to the i'th and j'th (closest to them) bottles:
    distFromBottleToBin[i] + distFromAdilToBottle[i] + 
    distFromBottleToBin[j] + distFromBeraToBottle[j]

    Notice also that if Adil and Bera are further from all the bottles than the recycling bin, then we have to choose the closest bottle to either one of them and one of them will be doing nothing.

How to solve C,div2 ? My idea was to sort the coordonates of objects and after that answer would be : ans += min (A,B),where A=Distance from Adil to recycling bin through bottle i and B from Bera.(for i=1, to n). But how to sort them ? I think that only the first two are important, 'cause after recycling one bottle, the coordonates of character will be changed to r0,r1.In this case , first element should be the closest bottle to Adil , the second the closest bottle to Bera(but the disstance from r0,r1 to it should be longer than from Bera to r0,r1); Is good this solution or not ?

When I saw " all ints starting from 1" I thought it meant...18 19 100 101 102...you know like all the ints starting WITH 1 I guess that's why I get stuck on gray but still it was a great round hope there will be more soon so I can return to green again :)

Hated today's Div2 C so much. Wasted a lot of time trying to implement it in the first place, and then to overcome WA 8 (without succeeding); I wish I had spent that time on problem D.

The worst thing is that the approach to solve the problem was actually pretty much straightforward, but implementing it and taking all cases into consideration turned out to be very, very time-consuming.

        Because this code has a portion where double value is printed with printf and in your codeblocks you have turned on c++11 flag. It is a common bug of codeblocks.

        I figured out why I got it wrong in my O(N) solution on case 41. This appears to be the first case where the distance between every point and the recycling bin is shorter than any point to either person. (Would've been a one line fix if I saw this in contest :/)

Hey Guys, here is my code for div2-c . Can some body please help me?

What I do is 1>1st consider that either person A and B collect all bottles..

2> Consider point i to be starting point for person A. Then consider all points except point i to be starting point for person B. Now calcualte the sum of all these distance and check if it is minimum...

Did i Miss any case???

    I didn't read your code. But your idea is O(n^2) right? For each point you check all other points. This was my innitial idea too, but there is a way to solve it in O(n), it's very similar to your idea, you just have to think a bit more.

      I acutally created a segment tree for person A, and then iterated over distance of person B, combined their sum and checked the answer...There should be no problem with the Time complexity, I have missed some case or made some mistake...

Can anyone please explain how to solve Div 1 D? I thought in the lines of HLD + DP, but couldn't find the correct approach.

      Vote: I like it 0 Vote: I do not like it

    I wasn't able to find any solution. I guess that once you solved the DP in N^2 or N^3 or something like that, the optimizations are not the big problem. What DP did you try to use?

      I tried to do dp(v) and then for each worker that has a path u -> v, I tried adding that cost plus dp(u), plus dp(i) for all children i of v that don't lie in the path from u to v, but then I realized that I'm missing a lot of paths that way. Then I tried a few more variations, without success.

      In the end, I couldn't find anything. The problem is that you pay each worker only once. If the cost of a worker was per road, then the problem would be easy. RMQ after HLD would solve it. Perhaps even a carefully implemented DFS + multiset would work, I don't know.

        My solution is a lot like your solution. In stead of going u to v, we can use all paths u to k where k is in the path between u and v with same cost c. Then in optimal paths will not intersect. So we can calculate answer for all nodes subtrees. We will use segment tree contructed by workers. Each leaf will keep the value you said above, we can easily update them when we go to current node s parent. You can see detailed solution when editorial published.

I think that Div1D is very good and interesting problem!!

First, I thought this problem need heavy data structure(ex. HL Decomposition, Link-cut Tree ....), but this problem need only segment tree with range add/min.

And I came back to redcoder! Thanks for this nice problem set.
