What is the AIO?
The AIO is a 3-hour computer programming competition for students in years 7-12.
Students invent algorithms and write code to solve problems.
Example problem: “Travelling Salesperson” (AIO 2009)
In this scenario, there are three different routes between Perth and Sydney.
Each route has a different number of customers who will buy your encyclopedias.
You are planning a round trip from Perth to Sydney to Perth. What is the greatest number of different customers you can reach along the way?
