3785 - Extraordinarily Tired Students Asia - Xian - 2006/2007 When a student is too tired, he can't help sleeping in class, even if his favorite teacher is right here in front of him. Imagine you have a class of extraordinarily tired students, how long do you have to wait, before all the students are listening to you and won't sleep any more? In order to complete this task, you need to understand how students behave. When a student is awaken, he struggles for a minutes listening to the teacher (after all, it's too bad to sleep all the time). After that, he counts the number of awaken and sleeping students (including himself). If there are strictly more sleeping students than awaken students, he sleeps for b minutes. Otherwise, he struggles for another a minutes, because he knew that when there is only very few sleeping students, there is a big chance for them to be punished! Note that a student counts the number of sleeping students only when he wants to sleep again.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
