Thanks :-) I think problem 3 is easier than before because the best result is not a ko. But still, good problems!

@gamesorry:
The competition at my work is two weeks ahead, and I think the next round might be a bit trickier, based on responses I got from participants there. I guess we'll see next week.

In my experience in holding this competition at my work, persistence pays off. Even if you don't get the right solution every week, trying every time helps.
