Assalamualaikum guys. In this post, I’ll discuss on the question given on IIUM Code Jam 2016. The commentary for the questions are from the question author (Zarir, Ayesha and Amjad) with some addition from me. Overall, compared to IIUM Code Jam 2015, the questions in IIUM Code Jam 2016 was much more balanced. There are less very easy question but there are less very hard question too. This is reflected in the ranking which shows a typical ACM-ICPC scoreboard.
