Inaho! What a wonderful name. Unfortunately, it is also insignificant's and Ninjaclasher's favourite problem, and so we have decided to mock it by creating 5 more problems named after it! These problems will be very obscure, weird, and break the boundaries of your imaginative capabilities, and so we hope you try them out.

The Inaho Contest will be a 3-hour virtual contest, which will allow contestants to participate in any 3-hour window between 12:00 PM EST, January 6, 2018 and 12:00 PM EST, January 7, 2018. Of course, it is forbidden to use two accounts to participate, and it is also forbidden to discuss the problems and/or their solutions with other people during the entire contest period.

This contest will not be rated.


Before the contest date, you may wish to check out the tips and help pages.

The contest consists of 6 questions with a wide range of difficulties, and you can get partial marks for partial solutions in the form of subtasks. If you cannot solve a problem fully, we encourage you to go for these partial marks. The difficulty of a problem may be anywhere from CCC Junior to CCO level. It is highly recommended to read and attempt all of the problems. You will have 3 hours to complete the contest. After the contest window begins, you may begin at any time. Your personal timer will start counting down, and you will be able to submit until 3 hours from when you started, or until the hard deadline (January 7, 12:00 PM EST), whichever comes first.

After joining the contest, you proceed to the Problems tab to begin. You can also go to Users if you wish to see the rankings.

We have listed below some advice as well as contest strategies:

  • Start from the beginning. Ties will be broken by the sum of times used to solve the problems starting from the beginning of the contest. The last submission time of your highest score will be used.
  • Remove all extra debugging code and/or input prompts from your code before submitting. The judge is very strict — most of the time, it requires your output to match exactly.
  • Do not pause program execution at the end. The judging process is automated. You should use stdin / stdout to perform input / output, respectively.
  • It is guaranteed that all the problems will be solvable with C++.

At the end of the contest, you may comment below to appeal a judging verdict. In the case of appeals, the decision(s) of our staff is final.

      Tomorrow (hopefully). The editorial is still a work-in-progress. I've been really busy with exams/culminating projects. Sorry!

      There is no public editorial for Inaho VI yet, and the link is a bug. The editorial should be released later today. The editorial for Inaho II and III will take a while to write, so they should be released sometime next week.

      Looks like they copy-pasted AQT's code for that problem, and presumably the other ones too...

      Unfortunately, this contest will not be rated (mostly because this is my first contest and I probably made an error somewhere). However, I hope you try the contest anyways!
