What is CCC?

Cited from CCC official website:
“The Canadian Computing Competition (CCC) is a fun challenge for students with an interest in programming. Designed to be both accessible to students with some programming experience and to challenge the keenest programmers at the secondary-school level, the CCC helps students build confidence and grow their ability to design, understand and implement algorithms.”


5 questions with 15 marks for each question. Full mark: 15*5=75.
