Hello Codeforces Community!

I invite you all to take part in HackerEarth's October Easy contest, scheduled on the 1st of October 2017 at 22:00 IST.

Problems have been set by me and tested by Paradox1. We are very grateful to HackerEarth admin r3gz3n for his help. :)

You will be given 6 algorithmic problems to solve in 3 hours. Partial scoring will be used (you get points for passing each test case). Although the contest is targeted towards beginners, we hope even experienced problem-solvers find one or two problems to be interesting. The contest is rated and prizes will be awarded to the top 5 beginners.

Good luck and have fun! :D

UPD: Contest has started.

UPD: Contest has ended. Editorials are out. Congratulations to the top 5!

By satyaki3794, 5 years ago, In English,

I recently tried the problem 294E - Шаасс Великий and my submission is 10704270.

I am getting TLE on test 8 which is a maxtest (5000 nodes). I am unable to figure out my mistake. Could someone please take a look at it and guide me in the right direction, if they can figure out what my mistake is?

My logic is as follows: I used a n^2 algorithm. One by one, I selected each edge as the one I will delete and found the optimal vertices in the two trees created (optimal means has the least sum of distances to other vertices in the same tree). Then I join those two to get the answer and compare it with the global answer.
