Welcome to the New Zealand Informatics Competition (NZIC), a contest series run by volunteers from the New Zealand Olympiad in Informatics (NZOI).

We hope you enjoy these contests and take the opportunity to learn more about informatics. When you compete in the NZIC, there is a possibility you could be invited to join us in Christchurch for our January informatics camp. For those interested, more signup information for camp will be released after round 3. Don't worry if you can't complete all the problems. We consider participation and passion as more important than how well you do.

You have three hours to complete as many problems as you can (including this one). Some problems are divided into subtasks which give you partial points. Even the hardest problems might have easy subtasks. If you get stuck on a question, we suggest moving onto the next one and coming back later. Questions are not always in order of difficulty but we do our best.

To get you started, we’ll give you some easy points for this problem. If you get stuck then please email
