Hopefully, you leave enough trees for coming generations.

As for the problem, I sincerely wish you manage to solve this problem during the contest (with or without wife), and if not, I have written Editorial for this problem which may help you. :slight_smile:

Lastly, for god, I hope God will find in his heart to accept you back. :slight_smile:

Anything else?

That’s not just “brute force” - that’s a 100-ton steamroller used for ironing handkerchiefs. Ogre force.

Do you deserve a mention in here?:
