@bbqchps- You can access your latest submission for any of the 5 questions on dwite.org.

@Helldemon30- Basically the question required you to count the number of triangles whose vertices were made of the given points that strictly included the origin.

@kkskeshava- If the problem you are having is speicific to Java code, I suggest asking your question at the Java forum (there are lots of pro people there Razz)

Are you sure? Because for my second submission, it actually scored less, because of the time bonus. So doesn't it just show my first submission?

Oh, sorry, I didn't notice that your second submission got a lower score. Well, in that case, right click on the question whose submission you want to look at, right click it and copy the link location. Then, when you paste it, you'll notice that before the file name of your program there's a '/0/'. Change this to a 1 (i.e. '/1'), and that should return your second submission.

Okay so now, how did I get 1/5?

I'll take a look at it. In the future, for personal inquiries, PM me and I'll help you out (so, your team name, Q#, etc...). Because if everyone started talking about their errors here, then it would just be bad Razz (I mean, I used to do this when I was a competitor too Laughing).

It was my first time doing DWITE, my school and I both epically failed. Mr. Green
dont worry it was my first time in DWITE, and also my first time actually using a programming program, so i failed pretty bad too.

Yes please! That would be amazing.

I thought the questions were nicely made. My school had five teams (as opposed to one last year!), and everyone seemed to have had a great time. The team of beginner programmers was able to get one question right easily, with everyone else getting at least two. Only two teams really understand what was going on in question #4, but that is typically the case from what I've seen.

I guess the only person you should comparing yourself with on these contests is yourself. Seeing as this was the first contest, you have set a benchmark for you to cross on the next one. Its a learning experience, so I encourage you to take a look at other teams' solutions if you haven't solved a question, and continue thinking about the problems just to learn something new.

And I will be. These contests are great that way; the stuff we do in class in unbearably basic, and DWITE and the CCC are a nice challenge. Seems like my biggest goal should be familiarizing myself with the different algorithms for things like pathfinding and graph theory. Given access to the internet those problems aren't too difficult, but off the top of my head I usually implement an algorithm wrong somewhere.

yup and i thank you for letting us be a part of this learning experiance, now i will have 4 more questions(that i didnt solve) to figure out for the next little while(like 2 weeks lol) i am still learning basic statements for turing, but i will get the hang of it soon tho i hope

@Shanethe13- Yes, therein lies the challenge.
@kkskeshava- No problem, the credit goes to Dan and Tony for having kept with this for years.

Just curious, how are the questions for Dwite created and thought of?
A.J




PostPosted: Tue Nov 30, 2010 6:11 pm   Post subject: RE:Dwite 2010-2011

Well, the process in which I come up with questions is a bit random. I usually think of concepts that I think are nice to know, and then I think whether it is of an appropriate level for the contest. Whether a concept is 'nice' or not is based on my experience of writing contests.

That's a good way to make questions Smile

I suppose. A majority of the questions I come up with, however, I keep in reserve for other contests. Though the occasional question I propose for DWITE.
