Could you please tell me some problems which could be solved using matrix exponentiation on codeforces or other judges ?

Thanks.

    if you want to solve the easy one you can guess it from first solutions. if you want to solve the hard one just listen to me here: you can represent a+b√k as 2x2 matrix [a b ; kb a] . the ; ends the first row and this way you can also make matrix multiplication faster as you need only O(n*n) good luck

    this problem is really good wow. also D in this gym can be solved if you know matrix multiplication. but in E here is a hint : if you are at row i how do you use row i-1 ? how do you know how many times did a certain pattern exist at the past row? why is m so little m<=5 ?
