# CODECHEF BECOMING OBNOXIOUS-NO EXPLANATIONS GIVEN

 1 Try to read the problem statement multiple times and follow what is being asked. I know it is quite intimidating to see a long paragraph with so many variables at first but if you try to understand the statement step by step then it becomes easy. The problem that you mentioned had a good and easy sample case. The question would've become much easier if more sample cases or explanation had been given as the only important thing was to crack that probability depends on previous steps. answered 30 Dec '18, 03:00 3★elli0t 57●3 accept rate: 4% 2 A quick, small hack which I often find useful... Start by reading the input and format format, then move to the problem statement. You just might be able to mentally solve the problem after the first read !!! (30 Dec '18, 04:49) Totally agree with this. I always do it whenever the problem statement is too long or weird at first look. (30 Dec '18, 13:14) elli0t3★
 0 If the test cases for the problem was explained it would have been even easier than the pattern problem. It was a problem based on 'total probability'. This is why you might have not been provided with an explanation. Regarding understanding problem statement, it will improve with time, Keep practicing. answered 30 Dec '18, 09:14 4★yaminote 137●5 accept rate: 3%
