What is MCC?

The MCC (Malaysian Computing Challenge) is an annual online competition designed to evaluate participants’ computational thinking abilities. Knowledge of programming is recommended but not required.

Format

This year, MCC will be held on SimpleCMS (our in-house contest system!). Participants will be required to solve 4-6 problems within a two-day window. Participants may work on the contest anywhere, including at home. Please review the Honour Code below. The problem statements will be available in both English and Bahasa Malaysia.

Sample Problem 1

Given a list of numbers stored in list arr. Output the sum of all numbers.

arr = [22, 39, 68, 90, 22, 53, 80, 36, 16, 44, 48, 29, 13, 24, 51, 69, 99, 65, 58, 41, 68, 57, 66, 5, 44, 10, 23, 1, 24, 64, 29, 85, 6, 22, 51, 14, 98, 93, 71, 77, 100, 92, 62, 69, 76, 83, 19, 68, 75, 40, 16, 20, 47, 95, 60, 71, 34, 11, 80, 90, 14, 39, 69, 71, 18, 64, 63, 89, 57, 88, 52, 2, 71, 2, 71, 20, 12, 49, 97, 33, 43, 7, 30, 37, 8, 83, 9, 68, 96, 72, 99, 21, 53, 68, 25, 71, 2, 31, 65, 69]

For this test case, you should provide the output:

5021

Sample Problem 2 (MCC 2017)

N balls are arranged in a row. Each ball is moving either left (L) or right (R) with the same speed. When two balls collide, they each move to the opposite direction with the same speed as before. How many collisions will happen?

N = 5
balls_direction = ['L', 'R', 'R', 'L', 'R']

For this test case, you should provide the output:

2

The actual tasks to solve will have N ranging from 10 to 100,000. Sample code solution is available at https://repl.it/@zhiwei/collisions
