Greetings Codechef Community!

We invite you to participate in Code Ensemble, running this Wednesday, 19th August from 9:00 pm — 11:30 pm IST. The contest is hosted by the DotSlash Community of Indian Institute of Information Technology, Nagpur.

The contest features 7 problems of varying difficulty and is 2 hours long. The contest is Rated for Div. 2 on Codechef. However, Division 1 users can participate unofficially in this contest. That is, Division 1 users will be able to submit in the contest, but will not feature in the Live ranklist, and nor will their rating be affected.

The problems in this round are prepared by @aert, @cherry0697, @sarthak_eddy, @saurabhshadow.

Huge thanks to:

@nagpaljatin141 for high-quality testing and valuable advice.
CodeChef Team for their invaluable help and great platform.
We hope you’ll have an amazing time. Good Luck & Have Fun!!!


Make sure problem/solution is correct this time and this contest not become an unrated contest


Please add a digit at the end of the question code, otherwise it takes 4 to 5 minutes to go through all the questions to understand which is the easiest.

It is done intentionally.

Can you guys make it rated for div1 too @saurabhshadow ?

The difficulty of questions are as per DIV-2 only and since it was our first rated contest so we though of first conducting it for DIV-2. Sorry, but we hope to conduct rated for all contest in future.


Cool, looking forward to it :v:
