## A. Expression

Petya studies in a school and he adores Maths. His class has been studying arithmetic expressions. On the last class the teacher wrote three positive integers a, b, c on the blackboard. The task was to insert signs of operations '+' and '*', and probably brackets between the numbers so that the value of the resulting expression is as large as possible. Let's consider an example: assume that the teacher wrote numbers 1, 2 and 3 on the blackboard. Here are some ways of placing signs and brackets:

• 1+2*3=7
• 1*(2+3)=5
• 1*2*3=6
• (1+2)*3=9

Note that you can insert operation signs only between a and b, and between b and c, that is, you cannot swap integers. For instance, in the given sample you cannot get expression (1+3)*2.

It's easy to see that the maximum value that you can obtain is 9.

Your task is: given a, b and c print the maximum value that you can get. 继续阅读

## A. Counterexample

Your friend has recently learned about coprime numbers. A pair of numbers {a, b} is called coprime if the maximum number that divides both a and b is equal to one.

Your friend often comes up with different statements. He has recently supposed that if the pair (a, b) is coprime and the pair (b, c) is coprime, then the pair (a, c) is coprime.

You want to find a counterexample for your friend's statement. Therefore, your task is to find three distinct numbers (a, b, c), for which the statement is false, and the numbers meet the condition l ≤ a < b < c ≤ r.

More specifically, you need to find three numbers (a, b, c), such that l ≤ a < b < c ≤ r, pairs (a, b) and (b, c) are coprime, and pair(a, c) is not coprime.

# [Codeforces 113B] Petr

## Description

Long ago, when Petya was a schoolboy, he was very much interested in the Petr# language grammar. During one lesson Petya got interested in the following question: how many different continuous substrings starting with the sbegin and ending with the send (it is possible sbegin = send), the given string t has. Substrings are different if and only if their contents aren't equal, their positions of occurence don't matter. Petya wasn't quite good at math, that's why he couldn't count this number. Help him!

## Wet Chairs

As luck would have it, it has rained on the morning of the concert. To make matters worse, the staff did a very rushed job drying the seats! Now it is up to you to decide how to seat everyone.

The seats are arranged in a single long line in front of the stage. In particular there are chairs in the line, and each seat is either wet or dry.

However, all is not lost. Out of the N friends you are bringing to the concert K of them are happy to sit on a wet chair. The other N-K of your friends insist on sitting on a dry chair.

Since this concert is best enjoyed with friends, you would also like your group to be seated as close together as possible so that the distance between the leftmost person and rightmost person is as small as possible. Output the smallest distance possible between the leftmost and rightmost friend at the concert.

Your task is to write a program that outputs this smallest possible distance.
