Hello, Codeforces!

I'm glad to invite you to amazing (we've tried to make it such) Codeforces Round #739 (Div. 3) which will start on Aug/18/2021 17:35 (Moscow time). This round is my (MrPaul_TUser) second round a significant contribution to which was also made by MikeMirzayanov, BledDest, DK318, unreal.eugene, and geranazavr555.

The round contains 7-8 problems. The difficulties of the problems are expected to compose an interesting competition for participants with ratings up to 1600. However, all of you who wish to take part and have a rating 1600 or higher, can register for the round unofficially.

The round will be hosted by rules of educational rounds (extended ACM-ICPC). Thus, during the round, solutions will be judged on preliminary tests, and after the round, it will be a 12-hour phase of open hacks. We tried to make really strong tests — just like you will be surprised if many solutions fail after the contest is over.

You will be given 7-8 problems and 2 hours 15 minutes to solve them.

Note that the penalty for the wrong submission in this round (and the following Div. 3 rounds) is 10 minutes.

Remember that only the trusted participants of the third division will be included in the official standings table. As it is written by link, this is a compulsory measure for combating unsporting behavior. To qualify as trusted participants of the third division, you must:

  • take part in at least two rated rounds (and solve at least one problem in each of them),
  • do not have a point of 1900 or higher in the rating.

Regardless of whether you are a trusted participant of the third division or not, if your rating is less than 1600, then the round will be rated for you.

Thanks to powergee101, artsin666, WitchOfTruth, ivanzuki, A_Killer, mahade31, I_Remember_Olya_ashmelev, nooinenoojno, Gassa, _c_k_r_, spotless, iankury, UpS0lver, ncduy0303, and Vladosiya for testing the round and improving tasks.

Good luck and have fun!

I know it's difficult for the problem-setters, but can you please postpone the contest by a day? We have our Asia West Gwalior-Pune regionals on 18th. I know, CF works differently but considering there are no contests within the next 5 days, I request you guys to please postpone. Please, we don't want to miss a div 3 round :)

    F1 was trivial. There are only about 50000 possible numbers to construct. So you build them all and then solve queries trivally.

I coded a backtracking solution for F1 but sadly it was getting TLE. I think that the time limit was too tight.It was (10C2*10^4*2^9) operations which is rougly 2*10^8 operations and could pass in 2-3 secs.

        I said that in the context of a backtracking solution.

        oh, okay!

        I solved it in the following way:
        Iterate from the last digit to the first digit. Say you are at the $$$i_{th}$$$ digit(from the end). If you can keep the portion to its left the same, change this one digit, and keep the portion to its right as small as possible within the given your constraints, this is your answer. If you can't, move on to the digit on its immediate left.

        My code, sorry it's quite messy: 126351416

    you dont actually need to check all possible choices for the two digits btw. In case if the number is not already beautiful, the answer's first digit would be the same as the first digit of the original number, then you can choose for the other number. that way your solution can be sped up by a factor of 4.5

      102 to 109 will not work as it contains 3 digits.

      now we need to increase second digit 0-> 1 so 11_ and in this case it's already less than 2 so we add zeros. 110

I had solved D, but I did not account for the max length that n can have (apparantly upto 10^18). But foolish me, thought that this would not cross 10^11(worst case). It will cause my rating to drop (which is already low). I will be more careful in the future. It was an excellent problem.

I saw that in C many people are iterating to get in what range will the number lie and do calculations according to that. You can do this in O(1) by using the fact that sum of first N odd numbers is .

My solution O(1) for problem C: https://codeforces.com/contest/1560/submission/126316175 Edit: it is not O(1) as pointed by some of the people in comments, I never bothered to look up complexity of pow function before.

    Actually It is easier than your code, After getting N^2 which is less than k We just N^2 — (N — 1)^2 == > 2*N — 1 And find (min(abs(2*N — 1 -k), abs(N^2 — k)), N(row, col depends on which is closer to k(i.e. whether N^2 or 2*N — 1))

        while(st < n){
            ct++;
            st = ct*ct;
        }
        

        this runs in $$$\sqrt n$$$

          Yes yes i forgot i am sorry, If only i could Look for N/2 — i and N/2 + i sides to find optimal square number

      Thanks for pointing it out, I'll edit my statement, I never bothered to look up complexity of pow function before, my bad.

        pow(n,2) in your case works fine, $$$O(1)$$$.

        math.sqrt(K) runs in $$$O(log K)$$$

          Can you tell the source of this info, from what I found on net, the complexity of math.sqrt() operation in python was given to be O(M(d)) where d is the number of digits

        It might be O(1) hmm.

        Probably depends on how you define input size.

I'd like to report a suspicious hacking attempt:

https://codeforces.com/contest/1560/submission/126379084

the source of the hacked with the hacker's are very similar, and the hacked submission has a special case (n=555), probably inserted there so it would be easy to hack (if you would know which submission to hack). No reasonable contestant would ever add such a case in their program.

the same happened here (by the same hacker on the same 'victim'): https://codeforces.com/contest/1560/submission/126362247, he added his own name in the hacked submission :)).

If this isn't conclusive proof of ''cheating'', then.. what would be a conclusive proof?

Edit: just looked at the comment that came before mine-- Is this "standard practice" in acm-icpc rounds :))?

    I would suggest try using vector in place of Set , Set has a good constant factor along with logarithmic complexity for almost all operations

Bogdan_fake clearly designed their solutions to be hacked. Surprisingly, a user called Bogdan_feysa hacked each solution...

IDK man the cheating just gets too much at a point.

Second user I have found: abhishek_kira hacking Rahul_uzumaku. https://codeforces.com/contest/1560/submission/126382347 see k==122112 https://codeforces.com/contest/1560/submission/126381396 see convoluted if statement at the start

Third instance I have found. Again same user as second: abhishek_kira hacking alpha__Noone. https://codeforces.com/contest/1560/submission/126364309 see K==99 && n==989891

    hi,yes,i tried using this after i saw at least 5 guys doing the same thing,but guess what,as far as I understand it now,it only counts if you hacked someone who is higher in the score table than you,and if ou hacked someone lower than you,it doesnt affect your rating,thats why I used the acc which i created to prove my friend wrong,because he was saying that those solutions will get me extra points,right after i saw that those users who hadn't been participating in at least 2 rating rounds,wont be included in the final table,i used the acc because i had only one rating contest there,therefore,i wont be in the final scoretable,even with all that,i i only started making the solutions only after the end of the contest,so they wont affect anyone,i made 5 hacks on my acc,to prove my friend wrong,the 6 hack was on the guy,who i don't know,i just saw him hack the same user twice,and i wanted to make fun of him,hacking his solution faster than him(if you don't believe me,you can check it youself),but thanks for reacting,I'm really glad that there are users,who have the same opinion about hackers,that they should be punished,hope you understand that i made those hacks for fun,knowing that it won't affect my final standing,thanks for reacting and i wish you high rating

My rating is 1194 .Still its showing unrated for me. But in bold word the contest rules said -

"Regardless of whether you are a trusted participant of the third division or not, if your rating is less than 1600, then the round will be rated for you." .

Its very disappointing as for the first time i might became pupil if i got rated this round. :(
