RTE '16 Senior Division

Welcome to RHHS's very first online programming contest: The RHHS Technological Extravaganza!

The RTE consists of 3 questions of roughly increasing difficulty, each worth 100 points.

You will have 1.5 hours to complete the contest. After the contest window begins, you may begin at any time. Once you enter the contest, your personal timer will start counting down and you will be able to submit until 1.5 hours from when you started, or until the hard deadline (11 PM EST of June 7th), whichever comes first.

For students of RHHS, prizes will be given to the top scores!


  • Partial points are available for some questions by solving smaller subtasks of the problem.
  • All I/O will be done from stdin and stdout, meaning read in from the console and print out to the console. Do not try to read or write files.
  • All problems are guaranteed to be solvable in Java and C++.

This contest is the senior division, intended for more experienced programmers in grades 11 and 12.

    How difficult are these questions? Are they comparable to the CCC Senior?

        As sunnylancoder has said, the contest is easier than the CCC Senior, with the hardest problem at around an S3-S4 level.

        The contest is unrated.
