Are you sure about the correctness of your solution to the problem "The Interstellar"?

I think the precision of my solution is definitely better than yours.

UPD: Sorry, it's my fault. I compute $$$\int a^2\cos^2(x)+b^2\sin^2(x) dx$$$ instead of $$$\int \sqrt{a^2\cos^2(x)+b^2\sin^2(x)} dx$$$ during the contest. :(

BTW, any corner case of "Evans Tries an O'Level"? My solution got WA on only one testcase.

    That testcase was incorrect. Apologies. Your solution was indeed correct.
