[CodeFest] Invitation to Participate in MathMania - Thou Shalt Compute..
Codefest'11, the annual online international coding festival of Computer Engineering Society IT-BHU, presents Mathmania- an online mathematical puzzle contest, which requires a blend of sound mathematical concepts and fine programming skills. The contest is inspired by ProjectEuler and will contain problems of similar level.

Prizes worth 30,000 INR to be won. Besides, Certificates to top 50 participants.

Event Details:

Visit the mathmania event page to see the detailed rules of the contest.

Solve a sample question:

Q: N numbers (1 to N) are arranged in a circular fashion. Starting from kth(less than N), every second number is eliminated from the circle. You need to determine the xth(less than N) number which is removed.
Small Case, N=1000, x=555, k=888.
Large case, N=999999999, x=55555, k=88888888

Check out the solution. Visit Mathmania'10 to check out the problems and scoreboard of last year.
