 » 3 years ago, # |   0 My solution problem D after contest(sad): 1)Find minimum first element with binary search 2) let's get maximum suffix, when we can add 1 for all numbers on segment, do it, while exist this is segment 3) end O(nLogn), and write easyhttps://codeforces.com/contest/1157/submission/53393728
 » 3 years ago, # | ← Rev. 5 →   0 In problem "A" we don't need to store reachable numbers ,As soon as we hit a number less than 10 we add 9 to our counter and stop Nice problems btw 
 » 3 years ago, # |   +8 1157D — N Problems During K Days can be solved simply by putting $1,2,\dots,k$ initially and then trying to put $(n-(k*(k+1)/2))/k$ elements in each, and then from reverse order adding as many elements in each position as possible, without considering special cases separately.You can go through my submission for clear understanding.
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 In problem number B, why we are not checking the digits which comes after the first digit which become less after replacing. for example if a = 13373 and f[] = {1, 2, 5, 4, 6, 6, 3, 1, 9}; then the correct answer is 15573 but why not 15575;

•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 And what about erase in multiset?Is there any way that I can still use vector and solve the problem. I know that using multiset will make it very easy but still as a matter of knowing.BTW, Thanks for the reply buddy !!
•  » » » » 3 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   0 You can’t use vector.erase for this problem. unless you want to code yourself a multiset libary for vectors, multiset is the only way to solve the problem in AC time, which erases elements from the container at log(n) time.

 » 3 years ago, # |   0 For problem 1157c1, what if the input is7 7 4 5 6 3 2 1The solution code out puts 5 RRRRL But if I discard 7 and take the subsequence [4 5 6 3 2 1],it's possible to get a strictly increasing subsequence of size 6, right?

 » 3 years ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   0 I solved D in a different way. Mine
 » 3 years ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   0 I'm kind of late, but problem D can be easily (more or less) solved by binary searching the first element, and then binary searching every other element as well, from left to right, so that the minimum possible sum is <= n and the maximum possible sum is >= n. My submission

 » 3 years ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   0 Nice Problem Set.
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 For the D problem, I just initialized array to 1,2,...,K then added (S — (K * (K + 1)) / 2) / N to every element in the array, and then just distributed (S — (K * (K + 1)) / 2) % N from the behind appropriately. Just wondering why there were so less submissions for this problem?
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 How to solve problem Minimum Array using segment trees??
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 5 →   0 I solved with segment tree, so I will try to explain my solution:First we need to sort B array, to be able to find some index j for each $A_i$ such that $A_i + B_l \lt n$ for all $l \lt j$, and $A_i + B_r \ge n$ for all $r \ge j$. We'll have only one index j for each $A_i$, because $max(A) + max(B) < 2n$.After that we can divide B array in two parts and find the best among these greedly, using segment tree here to get minimum, and then updating the used element to not be taken more than once.Submission

Your code here...


//why it doesn't work for problem B

# include<bits/stdc++.h>

using namespace std; int main() { char x[10]; int n,i,f=0,t1,t2; string p; cin >> n; cin >> p; for(i=1;i<=9;i++) cin >> x[i]; for(i=0;i<p.size();i++) { t1=p[i]-'0'; t2=x[t1]-'0'; // cout << t1 << " " << t2 << endl; if(t2>t1) { p[i]=x[t1]; f=1; } else if(f==1) { break; }

} cout << p << endl;

}

 » 23 months ago, # |   0 can anyone tell me mathematical proof of E i just wanted to know why finding greater element is optimal than finding lesser value element if n-a[i] is not found
•  » » 16 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   +1 It is because for any $k\geq n-a[i]$ and any $0\leq b < n-a[i]$, you will have $(a[i]+k) \mod n \leq a[i] + (n-1) \mod n < a[i] \leq a[i]+b < n$.
 » 12 months ago, # |   0 In problem E first I used a sorted vector to store the elements of array b and used lower_bound+erase operations to find the appropriate element for the current a[i]. But it gave TLE on test 16. But when I used multiset instead of vector it passed all the tests. Can anyone explain why vector solution gave TLE?
•  » » 11 months ago, # ^ |   0 This is because erase function in vector works in linear time(n), but in set or multiset, the data is already sorted so it works in constant time.o(1).
