# INOI 2018 discussion

 3 For second one, The observation was that, we can take one path and calculate the total sum without a second path using dp[i][j][k] = min/max(dp[i-1][j][k], dp[i-1][j-1][k-1])+prefix_sum[i][j]. We calculate this two times, once for min and once for max and then we can use the prefix sum intuition to subtract min-dp from max-dp. It's not clear enough here, but you might get an essence. answered 07 Jan, 20:36 2.4k●6●21 accept rate: 20% Exactly I did the same one but I made a error in finding dp(i)(j) and I didn't have time to debug so I couldn't get get partial in this so my ioitc hopes are down ,I am in 10th standard (08 Jan, 09:30) There were two main insights: The intersection constraint will implicitly be handled, since the base points have to be at least $K + 1$ apart. You can represent a possible solution as the difference of two solutions which have the left region as the 0th column. (as you said, the prefix sum intuition) (09 Jan, 12:30)
 2 Oh boy , was the second problem hard to get a logic for then,in the center.Anyway I guess the first one was pretty easy ,just basic bfs (or if you prefer,DFS).The second one really took a lot of my time and still I could solve only the easiest subtast of it(the 3rd one only,k=0) and could actually also solve k=m-2 task if I had a little bit more time (enough to copy my code from ide to submit tab :( ) Anyway I don't think I would be able to qualify with a pretest score of 112 seeing these many people get more higher . Still hope the cutoff somehow comes out in my favour :P .(btw I thought in inoi they don't have scores based on class/grade in which the participants study in ,right?) answered 08 Jan, 17:57 21●2 accept rate: 0% You might qualify if you are in class 10 or below. (08 Jan, 23:31) I am in 11th ,btw you gave exam in Kolkata center,right? I hoped to see you :P ,your questions in ico prep contests were pretty great. (09 Jan, 09:46) 3 istapr0 is the codename (09 Jan, 10:24) My condition was similar. BTW am I the only one around here who use DSU on the first one? :P (12 Jan, 22:00)
 0 I got 127 ... First one was a very easy dfs I found the 2nd question hard and did 2 subtasks in it. answered 07 Jan, 18:02 100●1●8 accept rate: 14%
 0 Solved the road trip and museum one. 100. Simple dfs. Couldn't solve the second one though. You? answered 07 Jan, 18:02 2★prajneya 2 accept rate: 0% I got 200. (07 Jan, 18:20)
 0 anyone solved 1 with bfs?? answered 07 Jan, 18:25 1 accept rate: 0%
 0 What were the problems? answered 07 Jan, 18:30 2★amit94 66●2 accept rate: 25%
 0 I solved the first one using BFS and got 100... For the second one I used prefix sums and got 12 points... answered 07 Jan, 19:02 38●3 accept rate: 12%
 0 I kept getting Segmentation error and runtime error while solving the first question. When I decreased the changed the adj list from adj[1000005] to adj[1005], the code ran fine. Did anyone else have this problem ? Also, what was I doing wrong ? answered 07 Jan, 20:03 3★taksh001 0 accept rate: 0%
 0 can anyone tell how to do the second question two paths answered 07 Jan, 20:12 4★ssp547 307●7 accept rate: 25%
 0 so what would be the expected cutoff?? answered 07 Jan, 21:15 1 accept rate: 0% 148 for 11,12 and 100 for 10 and below i guess (08 Jan, 08:58) 1 I think it would be 112 for 10th and below else too many people would qualify. (08 Jan, 11:33) 116 overall. I dont think they should make separate cutoffs. (09 Jan, 10:25)
 0 are the cut-offs different for 10th and below and 11th and 12th. I am in 9th and getting 100 what are my chances of getting into the TC. answered 08 Jan, 10:22 4★ssp547 307●7 accept rate: 25%
 0 Are there any chances that cut off for 10th and below will fall to 100 answered 08 Jan, 16:19 4★ssp547 307●7 accept rate: 25%
 0 I got 100 - solved the first question. I noticed the k=0 subtask way too late for the second one. I didn't have time to implement it properly :/ I'm really hoping that the cutoff for 10 and below is 100, but seeing the number of people who've got a score >100, I doubt that's going to happen :( answered 08 Jan, 21:44 1 accept rate: 0%
 0 Do anybody know when the results will be published?? answered 08 Jan, 22:09 4★ssp547 307●7 accept rate: 25%
 0 The results will be mostly announced within 10 days of INOI... answered 12 Jan, 15:53 38●3 accept rate: 12% @kristopher, are you sure? I hope they release it quickly. :) (12 Jan, 21:58)
 0 Can someone please remind me what the subtasks of the problem Two Paths were, and how many points each of them was worth? Thanks.. answered 12 Jan, 23:25 1 accept rate: 0%
 0 answered 16 Jan, 22:45 4★ssp547 307●7 accept rate: 25% and i got qualified, hope you all get qualified too, best wishes:) (16 Jan, 22:54) ssp5474★
 0 I am a class 10 student and I got 112 during the contest. I did not qualify INOI. Guess why ? My code failed in system test of problem 2 because of a blunder mistake in my code . I typed row variable instead of column variable while calculating the result in the last step of my code. I failed to realize it during the contest because my code passed the given test cases and I never thought of re-checking it. As a result I got 100 and did not qualify INOI :( (Though I got 76.5/80 in Sanskrit exam which was on day before INOI and I got 76/80 in Social Science exam which was on day after INOI . I really have to manage between school and competitive programming because of ... ) answered 26 Jan, 20:19 31●3 accept rate: 0%
 0 Can someone share how they prepare for INOI and competitive programming in general answered 26 Jan, 20:35 2★aloo1304 21●1 accept rate: 0% See the interview by Rishik Sood on the Codechef blog. (26 Jan, 22:13)
