May Easy 2016 by HackerEarth with my problems

Hi all,

May Easy Contest by HackerEarth is taking place on May the 1st at 6:00pm CET. Contest duration is 3 hours.

I created all the problems in the contest and it was a lot of fun to do it.

There will be 6 problems to solve, all algorithmic ones, especially targeted for beginners. However, I'm pretty sure that any participant will find them interesting to solve, because only 5 of the problems have a standard partial scoring and there will be one approximate problem.

A little hint for you, be prepared to use some math in the contest :)

As the setter of all problems int the contest, I want to thank the problem tester and editorialist Bohdan (I_love_Tanya_Romanova) for working with me to prepare the contest. It was a pleasure as always!

As a tradition in Easy Contests, the top 5 beginners will receive HackerEarth T-shirts.

Good luck and see you on leaderboard!

December Easy 2015 by HackerEarth

Hi all,

December Easy Contest by HackerEarth is taking place on December the 3rd at 5:00pm CET. Contest duration is 3 hours.

There will be 5 problems to solve, all algorithmic ones, especially targeted for beginners. However, I'm pretty sure that any participant will find them interesting to solve :) All the problems have partial scoring and ties are resolved by penalty time.

A little hint for you, 3 of the 5 problems will ask you to minimize some value, so be better prepared with methods of solving these kind of problems :)

As the tester and editorialist for the contest, I want to thank the problem setter aditya1495 and admin belowthebelt for preparing the contest. It was nice to work with you guys as always!

As a tradition in Easy Contests, the top 5 beginners (1st year or 2nd year) will receive HackerEarth T-shirts.

Good luck and see you on leaderboard!

November Easy on HackerEarth

On every 1st day of a month, HackerEarth hosts a special contest. It is called an Easy Contest, because it is targeted especially for beginners. However, it does not mean that there are just easy problems to solve, not at all!. This time, the problem set is prepared by shef_2318 and tested by Kmcode. I write editorials, as I usually do for this contest.

The contest is available here: November Easy 2015

There is something special about the contest. This time, problem set contains two unusual problems to solve. They are  completely different than any standard algorithmic problem, so we expect a very nice competition and we are curious how will participants deal with these problems. In addition to these special problems, you will get a chance to solve one problem defined on a tree, decide who has a winning strategy in a special game, and solve two problems targeted for beginners.

See you on leaderboard!
