“I don't know what HackerRank is, but am I right in assuming your teacher just copy-pasted a problem from a programming website and gave it to your class as homework? xD”

From Wikipedia:

“HackerRank is a technology company that focuses on competitive programming challenges for both consumers and businesses, where developers compete by trying to program according to provided specifications.


Programmers are then ranked globally on the HackerRank leaderboard and earn badges based on their accomplishments to drive competition among users. ”

So not just a programming website, but a competitive, recruiting-oriented website. How's that for a uni programming lab? xD
