The first Starters of the month, which was rated for both Divisions, ended yesterday night, and it would be an understatement to say that the contest was great. We had some solid problems and cutthroat competition, all of which made for an eventful 3 hours. Here’s a little rewind of the entire shebang!
A Problem-Set Designed To Stun!
For this contest, Division Two was expected to work through 6 problems for the revered top spot. Nice Pairs was the most loved problem here. nicholask was the first one to solve it and over 3.1k others followed suit. Another problem that was fairly popular amongst the intermediate coders was Division. The problem saw nearly 1,600 successful submissions and an accuracy rate of 14.69 percent. Coming to the problems that had our Div Two players in a little trouble we had Game of Length and Black and White Tree. While Game of Length managed to get 15 correct answers, Black and White Tree saw a meager 6 green ticks.
Meanwhile, Division Three had slightly more on their plate as they were tasked with 7 problems. The problems that the coders here enjoyed solving were Gold Mining and A Subtask Problem. Over the duration of the competition, Gold Mining saw exactly 6,160 successful submissions, while A Subtask Problem got a little over 5k correct answers. On the other hand of the spectrum, problem Integer concatenation through the players for a loop and saw only 15 green ticks. Problem Game of Length made a reappearance as a tough problem, and this time only 2 participants cracked the code.
