# Description

The kingdom of Olympia consists of N cities and M bidirectional roads. Each road connects exactly two cities and two cities can be connected with more than one road. Also it possible that some roads connect city with itself making a loop.

All roads are constantly plundered with bandits. After a while bandits became bored of wasting time in road robberies, so they suggested the king of Olympia to pay off. According to the offer, bandits want to get a gift consisted of gold and silver coins. Offer also contains a list of restrictions: for each road it is known gi — the smallest amount of gold and si — the smallest amount of silver coins that should be in the gift to stop robberies on the road. That is, if the gift contains a gold and b silver coins, then bandits will stop robberies on all the roads that gi ≤ a and si ≤ b.

Unfortunately kingdom treasury doesn't contain neither gold nor silver coins, but there are Olympian tugriks in it. The cost of one gold coin in tugriks is G, and the cost of one silver coin in tugriks is S. King really wants to send bandits such gift that for any two cities there will exist a safe path between them. Your task is to find the minimal cost in Olympian tugriks of the required gift.

# [codeforces 733E] Sleep in Class

## Description

The academic year has just begun, but lessons and olympiads have already occupied all the free time. It is not a surprise that today Olga fell asleep on the Literature. She had a dream in which she was on a stairs.

The stairs consists of n steps. The steps are numbered from bottom to top, it means that the lowest step has number 1, and the highest step has number n. Above each of them there is a pointer with the direction (up or down) Olga should move from this step. As soon as Olga goes to the next step, the direction of the pointer (above the step she leaves) changes. It means that the direction "up" changes to "down", the direction "down"  —  to the direction "Olga always moves to the next step in the direction which is shown on the pointer above the step.

If Olga moves beyond the stairs, she will fall and wake up. Moving beyond the stairs is a moving down from the first step or moving up from the last one (it means the n-th) step.

In one second Olga moves one step up or down according to the direction of the pointer which is located above the step on which Olga had been at the beginning of the second.

For each step find the duration of the dream if Olga was at this step at the beginning of the dream.

Olga's fall also takes one second, so if she was on the first step and went down, she would wake up in the next second.

# [codeforces 359C] Prime Number

## Description

Simon has a prime number x and an array of non-negative integers a1, a2, ..., an.

Simon loves fractions very much. Today he wrote out number on a piece of paper. After Simon led all fractions to a common denominator and summed them up, he got a fraction: , where number t equals xa1 + a2 + ... + an. Now Simon wants to reduce the resulting fraction.

Help him, find the greatest common divisor of numbers s and t. As GCD can be rather large, print it as a remainder after dividing it by number 1000000007 (109 + 7).

## A. Bus to Udayland

ZS the Coder and Chris the Baboon are travelling to Udayland! To get there, they have to get on the special IOI bus. The IOI bus has nrows of seats. There are 4 seats in each row, and the seats are separated into pairs by a walkway. When ZS and Chris came, some places in the bus was already occupied.

ZS and Chris are good friends. They insist to get a pair of neighbouring empty seats. Two seats are considered neighbouring if they are in the same row and in the same pair. Given the configuration of the bus, can you help ZS and Chris determine where they should sit?

## Description

NBA每年都有球员选秀环节。通常用速度和身高两项数据来衡量一个篮球运动员的基本素质。假如一支球队里速度最慢的球员速度为minV，身高最矮的球员高度为minH，那么这支球队的所有队员都应该满足: A * ( height – minH ) + B * ( speed – minV ) <= C 其中A和B，C为给定的经验值。这个式子很容易理解，如果一个球队的球员速度和身高差距太大，会造成配合的不协调。 请问作为球队管理层的你，在N名选秀球员中，最多能有多少名符合条件的候选球员。

## 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
