This question is the question involving fewest number of tiles. I am wondering for a test case of input 7 6 if the output would be 7 (3x2) tiles or 21 (1x2) tiles. Just trying to interpret the question properly. I found the question at this link http://ecoo.org/ecoocs/contests/ecoo_2010.pdf

You want to minimize the number of tiles required (i.e. maximize the dimensions of the tiles used).

Ok, that is what i thought, I was just checking that I had interpreted the question correctly. I'm looking forward to this year and am just doing a few past contests to get ready. Hopefully crossley can send both teams from DSBN this year

Well, hopefully I'll be in Canada long enough to accompany our teams as a teacher. Will Mr. Hughes be there? It has been a few years since I have emailed him, and I had never met him before.
