For the first round of the SOI 2012 we have prepared 6 tricky tasks. There are different kinds of tasks. Three of the tasks are practical tasks: You are asked to write a complete program that solves those tasks and submit the source code. For the two theoretical tasks, the focus is on mathematical aspects that are analyzed by the means of logical considerations in order to develop and write down a detailed solution. The last tasks is a creativity task that asks you to create a program that can interactively compete against the programs of other participants. The task is chosen such that it cannot be solved optimally. But note that even a simple solution scores points.
