Problem 638

Post by vamsikal3 » Tue Oct 09, 2018 7:24 am

I hope this is not a spoiler, but has anyone solved PE 638 without using <snipped by moderator>? I would be very interested in knowing if there are any alternate solution methods for this problem. My point being, if you have no clue what <snipped by moderator> are, how would you even know to look for them, based on the problem description.

Yes it is a spoiler. And moreover it doesn't belong to Recreational.

Answer to your question: solving for small cases could reveal resources on the web.

Never, never put this kind of spoiler on a public resource again.

Sorry for posting a spoiler, <snipped by moderator>.

EDIT: Actually, hk you are correct, just <snipped by moderator> gave many meaningful results.
