"Golden Pyramid" Review

Let's look at a classical CS problem that was realised as the Checkio mission. I mean "Golden Pyramid" mission. Consider a triangle of numbers. There is one number in the top of the triangle. On the next level - two numbers, then three and so on. You are start at the top and should down to the bottom of the triangle. For each step down you can move to on of two cell below current. And you "collect" (summarize) passed numbers. Your goal is find the maximum possible sum of numbers for all possible routes from top to bottom.

CheckiO Weekly #0 ― Clock Angle Review

Today we will examine the "Clock Angle" (http://www.checkio.org/mission/clock-angle/share/7defeec919a61f851255c46c1c9e12e5/) mission. You are given a time in 24-hour format and you should calculate a lesser angle between the hour and minute hands in degrees for analog clock. Simple mathematic model. But you can solve this even if you don't have doctor degree in Mathematics. Just watch at an analog clock. Old grandmother cuckoo-clock will be nice or find some video with analog clock (yeah it's sound weird).
