By wonderful_trip, history, 2 weeks ago, I'm training on Lightoj. And I have trouble in post: https://lightoj.com/problem/politeness. Can anyone give me an idea to solve this problem?

By wonderful_trip, history, 4 weeks ago, When I do an exercise I have a problem that let Ai <= 60 and n <= 1e5 and q <= 1e5, Count number of distinct elements in l to r. With type 1 query update change all elements from l to r to v. Type 2 query answer the number of distinct elements from l to r.

Example:

5 5

1 1 1 1 1

1 2 4 2

1 5 5 3

2 1 5 // is 3.

2 1 4 // is 2.

2 2 4 // is 1.

I know how if we update an element we can do this with the segment tree. But i don't know updating the range. Is this possible? if yes please explain to me. thanks for help!

By wonderful_trip, history, 3 months ago, I just made a mistake while participating in a coding contest in Vietnam and I came across a simple dp problem, the problem was: https://lqdoj.edu.vn/problem/dutpc2a : test of the contest organizers that I participated in, https://atcoder.jp/contests/dp/tasks/dp_h: The problem I encountered is the same as the one on atcoder

But I accepted this problem on atcoder but when I submitted the test from the contest organizer that I joined, I was wrong. And the problem I have is when I compare with the character '.' I got wrong but compare with '#' then accepted. Can someone explain to me why when I compare the character '.' wrong?

I think there are a few caveats when compared to the '.' and some other special characters, if my thinking is correct, someone can explain it to me.

this my code wrong:

char v[nax][nax]; int dp[nax][nax];

int32_t main() {

FASTIO

int n, m;

cin >> n >> m;

for (int i = 1; i <= n; ++i) {
for (int j = 1; j <= m; ++j) {
cin >> v[i][j];
}
}
for (int i = 1; i <= n; ++i) {
for (int j = 1; j <= m; ++j) {
if (i == 1 && j == 1)
{
dp[i][j]=1;
}
else
if (v[i][j] == '.')
{
dp[i][j] = (dp[i - 1][j] + dp[i][j - 1]) % mod;
}
}
}
cout << dp[n][m];
return 0;

}

and my code accepted:

char v[nax][nax]; int dp[nax][nax];

int32_t main() {

FASTIO

int n, m;

cin >> n >> m;

for (int i = 1; i <= n; ++i) {
for (int j = 1; j <= m; ++j) {
cin >> v[i][j];
}
}
for (int i = 1; i <= n; ++i) {
for (int j = 1; j <= m; ++j) {
if (i == 1 && j == 1)
{
dp[i][j]=1;
}
else
{
if (v[i][j] != '#')
{
dp[i][j] = (dp[i - 1][j] + dp[i][j - 1]) % mod;
}
}
}
}
cout << dp[n][m];
return 0;

}

Thanks for the help and sorry for my english!

By wonderful_trip, history, 5 months ago, When learning about 2D BIT, I have the question that 2D BIT can be easily updated 1 element and get sum, but can update the range ?

Problem:

for each query, you need to update the rectangle (x, y, u, v) each coordinate of a rectangle with upper left corner (x, y) and lower right corner being (u, v) incremented by c "at the same time".

After the update, we can find the sum query (x1,y1,x2,y2);

For example: Sum(2,3,3,4) is 28;

Is it possible to solve this problem? If so, please show how to do it!!!

thanks for help!!!
