After uphacking many Python 3 submissions in 1625B - Elementary Particles, I decided to write this tutorial and share my approach to hacking Python 3 hash tables since I am not aware of any other other blog posts on this.

I hacked several solutions of 1498B - Box Fitting in an attempt to help kill $$$O(n^2)$$$ solutions which utilise the $$$O(n)$$$ erase operation of a vector and also to kill slow solutions that does memset of a large array for each test case.

From my understanding, whenever there is a successful hack, the corresponding hack test case should be added to the system tests.

I submitted 111631567 after I made the successful hack with hack id 717894, yet the successful hacks from hack id 717866 to 717894 inclusive in 1498B - Box Fitting are not included in the system tests.

Is this a feature or a bug?
