I think the CPU limit should be increased for python.

Datasets are weak I think. O(n*t) solutions are passing. According to the constraints it shouldn’t happen. Thank you. <3

You want better algorithms than O(n) ?
I donot think that the fact that linear solutions are accepted should cause any problem though.

I wanted to say that, the main solve is O(n) and as there are test cases, So the full solve becomes O(n*t). For the worst case, can it work in 1 second?

@hjr265 if you have time can you see that once?

Increase the time limit for python.
Here is my code: [It’s getting cle in last case]

num_test = int(input())
for i in range(num_test):
    a, b, c = map(int, input().split())
    num_rabbit = a
    for j in range(1, c):
        num_rabbit += a * b**j

the tags of this problem may help I think!:smiley:

why it gives me “wrong answer”
i think my answer is correct

#include <stdio.h>

int main() {
    long long a, b, c, d, e, f, g;
    scanf("%lld", &a);
    for(b=0; b<a; b++){
        scanf("%lld %lld %lld", &c, &d, &e);
        printf("%lld\n", g);
	return 0;
