Silver My Cow Ate My Homework


So this problem is characterized as easy on USACO Guide, it took me around 1 hour and 20 minutes to completely solve this problem. Do I have a chance on promoting to gold during next week’s tournament? Or do I need to get significantly faster? Also regarding this question, how much time should we have spent on it, if we look to be able to solve the others and promote.

Honestly, it really depends. You might be able to solve this problem in 1 hour and 20 minutes, but you also might be able to solve another problem in only 30. But yeah, you could probably improve alot on that time.
