Round 1 is Nearly Over (You Have Till 5am)

with 2 comments

… And rather than posting the solutions like last year, it’d probably be more productive to use the time to discuss how in the world I / you / us / we found the answers. I’ll link to the official answers I suppose for those who are just following along for the ride, but otherwise it would be best to focus on what we tried that worked and / or didn’t work, and how we ultimately got the answer we did.

Hopefully expect some small notes on how I attacked the problems by tomorrow afternoon (spoiler: a couple of small brute force scripts on small numbers for the two annoying problems [you know which two]).

Have a nice night, happy submitting.
