## Line Trip Solution Codeforces

Line Trip Solution Codeforces Problem In 19711971, Chef and his wife created a beautiful array �A of �N integers: �1,�2,…,��A1​,A2​,…,AN​. The difference between any two adjacent elements of the array was at most �D. When he read about Prefix Max and Prefix Min in 20002000, Chef made two more arrays �B and �C of �N integers where, for �i ranging from 11 to �N, ��=���(�1,…..��)Bi​=max(A1​,…..Ai​) ��=���(�1,…..��)Ci​=min(A1​,…..Ai​) Now it is 2023. Unfortunately, Chef has lost the original array �A. But … Read more

## Chip and Ribbon Solution Codeforces

Chip and Ribbon Solution Codeforces Problem You have two arrays �=�1,�2,…,��A=A1​,A2​,…,AN​ and �=�1,�2,…,��B=B1​,B2​,…,BN​. Each of these elements also has a color associated with them, which is an integer. This is denoted by the arrays ������1,������2,…,�������ColorA1​,ColorA2​,…,ColorAN​, and ������1,������2,…,�������ColorB1​,ColorB2​,…,ColorBN​. In a single operation, you can swap any element of array �A with any element of array �B, if they have the same color. Your goal … Read more

## Add, Divide and Floor Solution Codeforces

Add, Divide and Floor Solution Codeforces Problem Consider an array �A of size �N: �1,�2,…,��A1​,A2​,…,AN​, where �N is even. The ��������AlterEgo of this array �A, is another array �B, which is computed as follows: Start with an empty array �B. For �i ranging from 11 to �22N​, insert the elements (��+��+�2)(Ai​+Ai+2N​​) and ∣��−��+�2∣∣Ai​−Ai+2N​​∣ to the end of array �B. Here ∣�∣∣x∣ refers to absolute value of �x. Rearrange the array �B in some random order. As you can see, because of … Read more

## yet Another Monster Fight Solution Codeforces
