## Stanford Local Contest Tie-breaker

There were four contestants who solved a total of three problems each. Thus, we needed to calculate the total time in order to select the three students who will comprise team #2. The four contestants were: sunet id name -------- --------------------- glouser Grant Glouser hwatheo Theodore Hwa hubes Hubie Chen yusufali Salim Yusufali Here is a subset of the submission log for the contest: ACM 1996 submission log ================================================================ Contest officially began at 13:10:00 a = accepted run r = rejected run time name problem attempt result -------- --------------- -------- ------- ------ 13:14:47 theodore hwa p1 1 a 13:27:35 Hubie Chen p1 1 a 13:48:14 Hubie Chen p3 1 r 13:49:31 Grant Keith Glo p3 1 r 13:51:14 theodore hwa p3 1 r 14:02:31 Grant Keith Glo p1 1 a 14:06:36 Hubie Chen p3 2 r 14:08:46 Salim Shabbir Y p3 1 a 14:26:22 theodore hwa p3 2 a 14:29:29 Grant Keith Glo p3 2 a 14:36:18 Hubie Chen p3 3 a 14:43:58 Salim Shabbir Y p1 1 a 15:15:19 theodore hwa p4 1 a 15:39:55 Grant Keith Glo p5 1 a 16:03:09 Hubie Chen p4 1 a 16:08:03 Salim Shabbir Y p5 1 a Contest officially over at 16:10:00 ================================================================ SCORING The total time is the sum of the time consumed for each problem solved. The time consumed for a solved problem is the time elapsed from the beginning of the contest to the submittal of the accepted run plus 20 penalty minutes for every rejected run for that problem regardless of submittal time. There is no time consumed for a problem that is not solved. a = accepted run r = rejected run p1 p2 p3 p4 p5 -- -- -- -- -- glouser a ra a hubes a rra a hwatheod a ra a yusufali a a a time elpsd = time elapsed glouser hubes hwatheod yusufali -------- -------- -------- -------- P1 time elpsd 0:52:31 0:17:35 0:04:47 1:33:58 P1 penalty 0 0 0 0 P1 total time 0:52:31 0:17:35 0:04:47 1:33:58 P2 time elpsd P2 penalty P2 total time P3 time elpsd 1:19:29 1:26:18 1:16:22 0:58:46 P3 penalty 0:20:00 0:40:00 0:20:00 0 P3 total time 1:39:29 2:06:18 1:36:22 0:58:46 P4 time elpsd 2:53:09 2:05:19 P4 penalty 0 0 P4 total time 2:53:09 2:05:19 P5 time elpsd 2:29:55 2:58:03 P5 penalty 0 0 P5 total time 2:29:55 2:58:03 ========================================================== Total time elp. 4:41:55 4:37:02 3:26:28 5:30:47 Total penalty 0:20:00 0:40:00 0:20:00 0 ------- ------- ------- ------- Total time 5:01:55 5:17:02 3:46:28 5:30:47 This was really a close contest, but Theodore Hwa managed to come out on top followed by Grant and Hubie. Salim will be the alternate. If someone on the second team cannot compete for some reason, Salim will take his place. If someone on the first team cannot compete for some reason, then Theodore will take his place, and Salim will compete with the second team. Congratulations to you all, and good luck at the regionals! -James
