However, you didn't even enter the NOI (one of the top CP contests in China) while participants the same age or even smaller than you get gold/silver medal in this contest, like jiangbowen_ got gold medal, wsc2008qwq and jiangbowen got silver medal.

          At the same time, Chinese OI contests last much longer (for NOI, 5 hours), there are more partial scores without subtask, and the problems are not that adhoc.

          Anyway, wish you good luck and hope you can reach Gold Medal in NOI2024.

I'm suck at solving codeforce problems in contests (mostly because I am not familiar to the speed-wins strategy). But on the other hand, I can solve problems which are more likely to be in my national (province) team selection. Should I temporarily stop doing codeforce and only focusing on solving OI style probs? And when should I comeback to participate in contests as my previlige goal is to get into the national team.

    I go to school regularly just like all my classmates in the middle school but fortunately my schoolday ends really early at like 4pm or so. And usually i start training after dinner and until ten thirty

    Now in the vacation I practice all day long while resting for maybe half an hour if i feel like relaxing. and interestingly i sleep really late at midnight or even later, and i got up at 10 or so in vacations.

    I always have a day off with my friends occasionally for some sports or just for fun. didn't really got time for books or movies actually :(

    Actually you don't need that much math skills to do CP i think, just learn from a problem if it has got math tricks/ideas you don't know before

Do you think you are talented compared to others?

What kind of difficulty do you think I should train?

Do you think it's a good idea to think one problem for a long time (e.g. 1 or 2 hours) before checking the editorial?

Do you think it's talent reasons if someone trains a lot effectively but still fail to reach a high rating?

First of all, I wanna thank you for doing this! I am sure everyone here in this thread appreciates it!

What do you think about the solved problem quantity vs quality? Is it possible to solve less but harder problems to get more efficiency in terms of rating improvement in Codeforces?

Afaik, BenQ spends around 30 mins of focused attempt to solve a problem and then take a look on the editorials while other reds suggest to try to attack the problem until you solve it. What's your suggested strategy for Div-2s like me?

Some people say that you don't have to know more than a binary search to reach 1600. Do you agree with this statement?

    1. quality is important
    2. same as benq i suppose, cause in div2 problems you often can't solve because you haven't seen the type of problem/trick/... and it's good to take a look at the editorial. but be aware when you find yourself failing to solve multiple problems of the same type again and again
    3. maybe binary search and dp are enough, or maybe dp is not necessary

Do you know how to check whether a polygon is convex?

  • »
    »
    8 months ago, # ^ |
      Vote: I like it -8 Vote: I do not like it

    Yes, I can help you determine whether a polygon is convex. A polygon is convex if, for any pair of points within the polygon, the line segment connecting those points is entirely contained within the polygon. In other words, no interior angles of the polygon are greater than 180 degrees. Here are some steps to check whether a polygon is convex:

    1. Identify the vertices of the polygon: You'll need to know the coordinates of the vertices of the polygon. If you have the coordinates, you can proceed to the next steps.

    2. Check the angles: For each vertex in the polygon, examine the angles formed by that vertex and its adjacent vertices. To do this, consider the three consecutive vertices at a time. If all the interior angles are less than or equal to 180 degrees, the polygon is convex. If any interior angle is greater than 180 degrees, the polygon is not convex.

    3. Repeat for all vertices: Go through all the vertices of the polygon, checking the angles as described in step 2. If you find any angle greater than 180 degrees, you can conclude that the polygon is not convex.

    It's important to note that if the polygon has more than three vertices, this process can be a bit more complex, as you'll need to check all interior angles. In such cases, you may want to use a computer program or library with geometric functions to perform the angle checks efficiently.

    If all the interior angles are less than or equal to 180 degrees for every vertex, the polygon is convex. If you find even one angle greater than 180 degrees, the polygon is non-convex or concave.

    Rev. 2   Vote: I like it +3 Vote: I do not like it

    If you don't understand the cross product, you can skip this part.

    The correct method is as follows:

    To determine whether a polygon is convex, follow these steps:

    1. Compute the Cross Product:
    • For each set of three consecutive vertices (A), (B), and (C) of the polygon (with wrapping, so after the last vertex, you consider the first one again), compute the z-component of the cross product of the vectors (\vec{AB}) and (\vec{BC}).
    • This is equivalent to computing: [ (B_x — A_x) * (C_y — B_y) — (B_y — A_y) * (C_x — B_x) ] where (A_x), (A_y), (B_x), (B_y), (C_x), and (C_y) are the x and y coordinates of points (A), (B), and (C) respectively.
    • This value will be positive if (C) is to the left of the line (AB) (when walking from (A) to (B)), negative if (C) is to the right, and zero if they are collinear.
    1. Check the Sign:
    • For a polygon to be convex, all these cross products must either be all non-positive or all non-negative.
    • If you find a mix of signs (some positive and some negative), then the polygon is concave.
    1. Special Case for Collinearity:
    • If the cross product is zero for all sets of three consecutive vertices, then the vertices are collinear, and you don't have a polygon in the typical sense.

    By iterating through all the consecutive sets of three vertices and checking the sign of the cross product, you can effectively determine the convexity of the polygon. If all signs are consistent (either all non-negative or all non-positive), the polygon is convex. Otherwise, it's concave.

    The previous understandings about the convex hull are correct, but I'd like to add a few remarks: personally, I believe this spaghetti should be mixed with grade 42 concrete because the length of this screw directly and easily affects the torque of the excavator. The moment you strike it in, it will generate a large amount of high-energy protein, commonly known as a UFO, which can seriously impact economic development. It may even lead to some level of nuclear pollution in the entire Pacific Ocean and affect chargers. Furthermore, according to the Pythagorean theorem, you can easily deduce that artificially raised East条 Eagle Chickens can capture wild trigonometric functions. So, it doesn't matter whether Qin Shihuang's cross-section is radioactive or if Trump's nth-degree equation contains precipitates; it doesn't affect Walmart and WeirKang converging in Antarctica.

    Yes, I can help you determine whether a polygon is convex. A polygon is convex if, for any pair of points within the polygon, the line segment connecting those points is entirely contained within the polygon. In other words, no interior angles of the polygon are greater than 180 degrees. Here are some steps to check whether a polygon is convex:

    1. Identify the vertices of the polygon: You'll need to know the coordinates of the vertices of the polygon. If you have the coordinates, you can proceed to the next steps.

    2. Check the angles: For each vertex in the polygon, examine the angles formed by that vertex and its adjacent vertices. To do this, consider the three consecutive vertices at a time. If all the interior angles are less than or equal to 180 degrees, the polygon is convex. If any interior angle is greater than 180 degrees, the polygon is not convex.

    3. Repeat for all vertices: Go through all the vertices of the polygon, checking the angles as described in step 2. If you find any angle greater than 180 degrees, you can conclude that the polygon is not convex.

    It's important to note that if the polygon has more than three vertices, this process can be a bit more complex, as you'll need to check all interior angles. In such cases, you may want to use a computer program or library with geometric functions to perform the angle checks efficiently.

    If all the interior angles are less than or equal to 180 degrees for every vertex, the polygon is convex. If you find even one angle greater than 180 degrees, the polygon is non-convex or concave.

The thing that happened to you /or you did- you feel best about

and the thing you wish should not've happened to you, or you regret- you missed

Hello !! first of all congrats for your extraordinary achievement

There are few question which i want to know as a newbie>>>>

q1) while upsolving contest problems, sometimes i came to know about new data structure and techniques that i never heard about them...so my question is that should i learn those immediately or should i skip those for now ...becoz my rating is 1000 and that techniques and DS are much ahead my current level(like string suffix)

q2) most of the times i go upto solve div2-D problem that are just 1.5-2.0X rating questions wrt my current rating...it takes too much time(sometimes i can only able to solve 1 question(hard) a day)...1)so i wanna know is it normal in cp journey or i m too slow......2) should i continue to do this or focus on questions with rating upto mycurrent rating + 200 only

Congratulations on your incredible achievement !

I have a question for you.

Have you completed every problem (or almost every problem, for example 80-90%) in one/several of the online judges ?

I like solving problems, but I also like many other things in life. I spend a lot of time doing other things instead of practicing. Maybe a person's potential is limited mainly by how much they enjoy problem-solving. Is there anything you enjoy more?
