 » 3 years ago, # | ← Rev. 3 →   -105 Video Editorial of Problem C: Mere Array
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +74 I tell you and other video editorial makers one thing honestly , if you really want to help people help in problem D , E (and F some times) . Just see the number of submissions in problem A,B,C . Almost everyone did them and those who did not would have got by now.
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   -21 Yes, most of the participants in cp community belong to average level and hence need help in difficult problems (need explanation of problems above C in cf) in order to increase thier level.
•  » » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   -27 Thanks , it's not difficult for any person of any level to upsolve A,B,C .Real difficulty starts from D.
•  » » » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +53 To upsolve definitely not, given the fact, that tutorial essentially give you exact way how to code them. But to understand WHY those solutions are correct might not be that easy and this is much more important if you want to improve your cp skills.Moreover no matter on your skill level it does happen, that you come up with a more complicated solution/same solution but more complicated way to understand why it works/have something like "my intuition tells me something like this should work but I have no idea how to prove it" even for a relatively simple problem, and then it might be worth it to see the simpler solution
•  » » » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 Some people think that the difficult part starts from E or F, it's different for everybody. Yes, A, B, C tend to be easy for most people but there are others who celebrate, if they solve C and we as a community got to help each other not make fun of.
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 4 →   +31 Hi @bully....maguire Why are you pulling him down? Maybe you can help the community by making video editorials of D,E,FHe is putting in efforts to give back to the community,atleast appreciate what he is doing, it may not be helpful to you, but to someone out there it may be immensely helpful. Btw no doubt your feedback does also make business sense, because if we look at it like a CP Question (:P), the number of views that he gets on a video editorial of Question X would be = Number of people who solved Ques(X-1) — Number of people who solve Ques(X)So for this contest, the audience for Editorial of C is 2000 whereas the audience for an editorial of D is 6000 :D
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +12 while u got a point, still this is no reason to demotivate him.
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +9 I overkilled it with DSU :/ saw that some set formation is there and quickly started coding. Now I know Div2C is not meant to write large amount of code. Nice video tutorial :)
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   -19 sir if we take all numbers who are not at the right position and then take out their gcd finally check weather that gcd is equal to the minimum number so is it correct ??
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 [8,4,6] Their gcd is 2.
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 Their gcd should be divisible by the minimum number.
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   -23 https://codeforces.com/contest/1401/submission/90619678 why is it wrong ??
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   +4 try this array2 3 8 4ans should be YES
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   0 2 4 8. The answer should be yes because even though 2 is at the correct place, we can still use it to swap the other values. your solution would be correct if you just check whether the gcd of the calculated gcd and the minimum is equal to minimum or not.

•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 Ummm.... I think you didn't have the code for handling the m < n-1 part.
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 for m
•  » » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +2 Oh oooops sorry I meant the m > n-1 part ;)
•  » » » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 till then priority queue will become empty right?? and before it i will greedily assign values?
•  » » » » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +1 According to the problem, "the product of all n-1 numbers should be equal to k;", which means you have to use up all numbers in p[]. But in your program it seems to leave them unused though.

 » 3 years ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   0 Can someone tell me a testcase where my code for problem B is failing? https://codeforces.com/contest/1401/submission/90608794 Thankyou
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 absolutely wrong, try another approach

•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +14 I want your Weed
 » 3 years ago, # |   +9 Fast editorial !!!! Great problems specially D problem . Thanks codeforces community
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 In problem E:"∙ When a segment intersects with two sides (facing each other) of the square, the number of pieces increases by one."Doesn't the number of pieces in this case increase by two?
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +10 Think about the simplest case: you only add one segment going across the square. Initially there is one piece (the whole square) and after adding the segment, there are two pieces, above and below the segment. So, the number of pieces increased by one.
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +11 Right, in my head the inital number of pieces was zero lol. Thanks!
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 But, suppose you then added another segment vertically touching both the opposite sides and intersecting the previous drawn line. Now,the number of peices is 4 (increased by 2). How?
•  » » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +5 Because you also have a new piece from the intersection of the two segments."∙ When a segment intersects with two sides (facing each other) of the square, the number of pieces increases by one."This statement is not counting new pieces from internal intersections.
 » 3 years ago, # |   +5 Can anyone help me? My code for Problem D here(https://codeforces.com/contest/1401/submission/90610162)Like editorial's method, I was trying to get answer. but i don't know why it does not work.
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +25 You take the weights modulo 10^9+7 before sorting them, so the order can come out wrong.I made the same mistake during the contest but gave up trying to figure it out. No motivation when the contest is unrated :D
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +12 what............?!!!!!?i have never thought about that LoL...Thank you very much, and i will never modulo before sorting :(
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 thanks man i spent 1 hour during the contest to find the same bug in my code and also after contest i couldn't find that.
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 Can you please tell what's wrong in this code for problem d Maximum distributed index.
•  » » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +5 I think the mistake is in this part of the code:  for(int i=1;i
•  » » » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 I found the bug.....I was adding the contribution of extra primes instead of multiplying....As for what you are saying that piece of code is completely fine....as every node will be a child to some node except for the root(note I start with i=1 and don't count the root). Thanks anyway though!
•  » » » » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +5 Okay:)
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 Thanks, my code had the same mistake and I couldn't find the bug
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 About E: in the editorial, is it segment tree or interval tree?
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 It's the efficient segment tree implementation https://codeforces.com/blog/entry/18051
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 I meant: is it a segment tree (to do operations with numbers), or it is an interval tree (to do operations with intervals)
•  » » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +3 It is definitely a segment tree (if by "interval tree" you mean the Wikipedia definition). I don't think I've ever seen an interval tree used in a contest problem. But it's confusing because some people refer to segment trees as interval trees.
•  » » » » » 3 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 3 →   0 Thank you. My solution was to construct interval tree (from horizontal segments), then for each vertical segment find the count of horizontal segments which contain its x coordinate. But I haven't done that. If it is a segment tree I will try harder to understand this solution:)
•  » » » » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 Something like that should work as well!
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 Can someone share his/her approach for solving problem E. The editorial is too breif for me.
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +6 Here's what I did:First put all the horizontal lines down in the square. For every line that spans $x = 0$ to $x = 10^6$, the number of regions increases by 1 (originally 1).Then, we can start putting vertical lines from left to right. We run a line sweep from left to right and maintain a data structure of "active" y-coordinates during every vertical line. I included $y = 0$ and $y = 10^6$ as always active lines. You can then notice that for every vertical line $V$ added, if the number of horizontal lines intersecting $V$ is $z$, then the number of regions increases by $z - 1$. For this part using a Fenwick tree would be a simple data structure that works.

•  » » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 Code: Submission
•  » » » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +1 Your idea and implementation both are awesome. Just 1 small thing, I was checking your code and saw that there is sorting of lines done which is not required, I guess.
•  » » » » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +1 Yeah the sorting is not required, I just never removed them from my code :)
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 3 →   0 I used the same logic just switching roles of horizontal and vertical lines. I used ordered set for querying. But getting wrong answer on 5th test case. Can u please help?? 90619940Found !!
 » 3 years ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   0 :)
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 Very nice problems!
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 What's special in Pretest 5(Question number D). Can anybody provide a smaller test so that I can manually verify my code? My submission I had considered the case when m>n-1 too. Any help will be highly appreciated.
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 Pretty sure it's overflow. I had the same WA, and switching some of my ints to long longs fixed the problem.
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +19 You take mod before sorting frequencies.
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 Thanks, bro! One mode affect my delta to more than 50..really upset
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +4 it was common mistake for maximum.
 » 3 years ago, # |   +5 Ratings are calculated already , this contest is fast.
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 what is the wrong with my solution for D
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +1 for(ll i=2;i<=n;i++) { vc.push_back((counts[i]*(n-counts[i]))%mod); }remove mod
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +1 I done the same mistake. Take mode after sorting not before sorting!
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +3 yep. makes sense

•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 This is written in your code"//.size() return unsigned int so never use i
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 I never thought someone will ask about the commented part.In some question, you have to loop till the third last character of string. So you will write i
 » 3 years ago, # | ← Rev. 4 →   +5 Really Enjoyed the contest man ! Keep up the great works tlsdydaud1 especially and all other co-ordinators too in general :)
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 Please somebody expalin me in more detail, how to prove that we should multiply numbers in both cases in exactly this way. Sorry for my English
 » 3 years ago, # |   +26 During the contest I submitted solution for F and it passed pretests. But I quickly realized that it works in $O(2^n \cdot q)$, though it was easy to fix so it would work in $O(nq)$ and I resubmitted. But then I submitted initial slow solution after the end of the contest, and it passed systests! So I quickly hacked it 90619845 But I'm quite disappointed that systest didn't manage to break my initial slow solution(
 » 3 years ago, # |   +1 The idea behind D was exactly same as 1280C - Jeremy Bearimy. And thank you for the contest.
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 Actually I motivated by that problem and 1187E - Tree Painting. :)
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 Also this problem is a way much similar to the current, except the tree is rooted here and only paths from roots were considered. 1399E1 - Weights Division (easy version)
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 My poor puny brain still didn't understand problem A. Could anyone kindly explain a bit more as to why ans would be 0 or 1 in case of k
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 When k is less than n, consider B is x distance left of A, then k = n — 2*x. So x = (k — n)/2. If if the difference is odd, you need to move 1 unit, otherwise, with 0 steps you can do it. Visualize it with an example and you might understand better.
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 Can anyone explain in Problem D, why should we do the "product of the number of vertices belonging to each of the two components divided when the ith edge is removed from the tree"? I understood that the edge removed will be visited that many times, but am not getting the intuition or reasoning behind that.
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 all vertices to the left of edge x, right of edge y for each vertex in left side that edge is used when visiting y vertices on the right. so in total that edge is used x*y times
 » 3 years ago, # |   -7 If you understand what is required in D, the implementation is not trivial, but still easy. So the tutorial should explain what is needed. Instead, the wording is even more bulky than the problem statement.
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 C can also be solved in segment tree 90626651
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 Bruh ! Thats next level of overkill xD
 » 3 years ago, # |   +13 How to prove the equivalence of the two segments in Problem F?
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 In problem B: Ternary sequence, along with the pairs 1,0 0,2 2,1 , I am also maximising the pair 2,2 to decrease the pairing of 1,2. But I am getting wrong answer. Please explain.
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 you should increase 2 1 pair as this will add 2 to the answer , 2 2 pair will add 0, i hope you get the points.

 » 3 years ago, # |   0 Best codes written. Hats off to you brooooo. Other editorialists use dirty templates. Templates so dirty that no one is able to understand. Why don't they understand that it is difficultto read codes, when untidy templates are used. Thanks for giving such clean codes. Thank you so much. Again thanks.
 » 3 years ago, # |   +5 Can some one elaborate on the proof for the second case in problem D ? Why is it guaranteed that the n-1 primes that are obtained from [p 0 , p1 ,p2 ,p 3, ... , p n-1 * p n *....*p m-1 ] are the maximum group of primes that can be obtained? I can see why if there is no MOD taken, but shouldn't the mod make things different?
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 You're not trying to find the answer with the highest mod value, you're trying to find the exact answer first, and then mod it because it's too big
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 Do you mean that because of the wording of the problem, this is the required answer but not necessarily the maximum answer that can be achieved ?
•  » » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 The problem exists independent of the mod. You only take mod for the answer becuase handling such big numbers is hard(probably impossible).
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 Any idea why does this code not work for D? Code
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 I think there is another interesting way to solve the problem F using a lazy segment tree. The idea is to maintain the "lazy array" as a "segment tree" and then, the querie 2 and 3 are equivalent to updates in a range in the "segment tree" and the others queries are normal ones in the lazy segment tree. You have to keep in mind that you obtain the values of the "lazy array" with the "segment tree" in every moment. This way you can even do queries of type 2 or 3 in a certain range of blocks. What I mean is that not only works for the whole blocks of subarrays (update in the whole block of subarrays), but for certain range of blocks of subarrays. The complexity is O(n^2*q). Anyway, nice problemset bro!.
 » 3 years ago, # |   +33 My solution for E:By Euler's polyhedron formula, we have $V-E+F=2$ in a planar graph. We want to compute the number of faces of our planar graph, excluding the outside of the square, which is $F-1 = E-V+1$. For each segment (including the edges of the square), let's suppose that it has $v$ vertices lying on it. Then it contributes $v-1$ edges. Summing over all segments, $E = \sum v-1 = 2V-n-m-4$, since each vertex lies on exactly two segments and there are $n+m+4$ segments. Thus, $F-1 = V-n-m-3$. Computing $V$ is easy using sweepline.
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +37 *In planar connected graph, which is why we need the assumption that all segments touch one side of the square. Without it the formula becomes: $V - E + F = 1 + C$
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 Does all vertices lies on exactly two segments? What about cases like this: ........... . . . . ..... . . . ........... One vertex is exclusive to one edge only
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 I define a vertex as an intersection between a vertical and horizontal edge, so the vertices and edges would be counted like this: V....E....V E . . . V.... E E . V....E....V 
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 Humble Request. I am facing issue with understanding D problems how have we calculated no. of nodes in the separated component(d) of which we are calculating d*(N-d). Actually I did it using Dfs N-1 time on each node. I knew that it will give TLE. Whereas here it is done in one Dfs only. Can someone explain to me whether this is a general algorithm or anything like that or where can I learn it from more intuitively?

•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +3 Let us consider $n$ weights and $m$ primes.I'm using 1-indexed arrays.We must take into account 2 facts.Let $W_i$ be the $i$th smallest weight, i.e. sorted in ascending order. Let $c_i$ be the coefficient of $W_i$. Let us prove $c_i<=c_j$ if $ic_j$ and $i1$. So optimal structure has all primes in $c_n$, as each prime shift is essentially just substituting $k$ as $p$.But since we need to minimize the number of ones, we need to give some primes to the previous values. So it also obvious that if there is more than 1 prime on some $c_i$ for $ip_k$ and $p_k$ is in $c_n$. It is optimal to swap $p_j$ and $p_k$ as shown in the previous equation, $k$ for this swap is $p_j/p_k$ which is greater than $1$. Therefore the mentioned structure is optimal.

I mixed in graph and non-graph words, and realised midway that we do not really need the terminology for the problem.For each of the intersection points of the line segments, and each of the "dangling" endpoints of a line segment, we put a vertex there. The edges between these vertices are naturally formed. This gives us a planar graph which is also connected, as each line segment has one endpoint on the outer square. This gives, by Euler's formula, V-E+F = 2. This 2 includes the outer, infinite face, so F_finite = 1+E-V.Now, consider a "dangling" vertex (that is, a leaf vertex). We can delete this vertex along with the edge joined to it. This does not change the answer, as removing it decreases E and V both by 1. Now, consider two "internal" line segments (that is, one of the line segments other than the segments of the outer square) that intersect. This intersection increases E by 2, but increases V only by 1.Also, consider a line that completely crosses the outer square. Such a line segment increases E by 3 and increases V by 2.Therefore, our answer is1 + (number of intersections amidst the internal lines) + (number of internal lines that completely cut through the outer square).

 » 3 years ago, # |   0 E is easier than I thought. What a pity, I had silly trouble with problem D and did not have enough time for E :((
 » 3 years ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   +15 Here's a more straightforward approach for F:Let's build a standard range sum Segment Tree. Aditionally, we will store which powers of 2 have been swapped (in a simple boolean array).Note that a reverse operation of power $k$ is simply swapping of all powers $i$ such that $i < k$. We have now reduced the problem to just range-sum with updates and swaps.Whenever you swap a certain size, just flip its value in the boolean array we created. Now, because a segment tree is based on dividing the array into segments of powers of two, it's pretty easy to perform the swaps. Let's say you have assigned children of node $p$ to be $2*p+1$ (left child) and $2*p+2$ (right child). While traversing the segment tree for anything (updates or sums), you just need to flip the children if needed. That is, if the power of two that this node is responsible for is swapped, your left child will now be $2*p+2$ and right child will be the node $2*p+1$.This is pretty straightforward, and only adds a couple of lines to your standard segment tree implementation. Handles swap queries in constant time, and the other two in $O(n)$.

The equation you mentioned also makes sense.I initially tried to simplify the problem by only considering queries of one kind. Swapping seemed pretty easy to do with a segment tree, and naturally I realised that reverses are also just swaps! •  » » 3 years ago, # ^ | 0 This is awesome. I was thinking on the same lines but just couldn't realize that reverse operation can be seen as swap.  » 3 years ago, # | 0 There is a mistake in the editorial for F,$[l,r]$should map to$[l\text{^}(x\&\text{~}(2^k-1)), r\text{^}(x\&\text{~}(2^k-1))]\$ instead.
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 Thank you for noticing me. I'll edit it.
 » 3 years ago, # |   +5 A very subtle mistake which can be done in the D question is that, while calculating the frequency of the edges, you might use modular multiplication, which will give the wrong answer, as very high edge frequency, under modulo might become somewhat lesser, and in the end when sorting the frequency array, it might be more towards the smaller side and hence answer obtained will be lesser than the actual answer.

 » 3 years ago, # | ← Rev. 3 →   0 For Question E wouldn't the runtime complexity for a sweep algorithm using a segment tree set be O((m+n)*log(m+n)) instead of O(nlogn + mlogm)? Suppose we are sweeping from left to right. Then we would need to stop at every x value that corresponds to {beginning of horizontal segment, end of horizontal segment, or a vertical segment}. This adds up to (2n+m).And for the segment tree, if we were to use index compression, we would still have to include leaf nodes for both the y-values corresponding to horizontal segments and the top/bottom y-values for vertical segments to be able to efficiently obtain a range query. So this would add to (n+2m).Another possible solution is to use an ordered set instead of a segment tree, and we would only store the y-values of active horizontal segments. And for every vertical segment we can perform the range query using lower and upper bound, which would be O(logm). But this would still lead to a runtime of O((n+m)*logm). I'm mainly just thinking out loud here, but if anyone can confirm/refute what I have here your help would be greatly appreciated!Edit: So I just realized that using lower and upper bound with an ordered set would require O(m) instead of O(logm) since finding the distance between two iterators in a data structure without random access is linear. So this would mean that the segment tree is the fastest option. But my point still stands that the time complexity is O((n+m)*log(m+n)).
 » 3 years ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   +8 tlsdydaud1I wonder why you use for(;t--;) unusual isn't it? Is there any special reason? I have seen most of the people using while(t--).
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   0 I know that. But I use for(;t--;), so also used it.
 » 3 years ago, # |   +5 Alternate O(nq) solution for F:Make a standard RSQ segment tree. Define the 'level' of a node in the tree as log2(size of range covered by node). The level of the root is obviously n. An operation "swap k" can be simulated by swapping the left child and right child of all nodes with level = (k+1).An operation "reverse k" can be simulated by swapping the left and right child of all nodes with level <= k.The swap and reverse operations can be done fast with a lazy propagation type optimisation. After this, it's just basic query and updates on a segment tree.My code for this: https://codeforces.com/contest/1401/submission/92201994
