The Accountant, Part 2

The Accountant
I just checked the results of The Accountant programming contest over at Codingame. I didn't come in first but I didn't come in last either, so, good enough for not too much effort.

Worldwide there were nearly 3,000 players that scored at least some points. There were twice that many players, but there's no telling if they actually made any attempt to solve the problem. I mean they could have signed up and then said phooey, let's go to the beach.

Of those 3,000 players about one-quarter managed to successfully pass all of the tests. The top score was 44,880 points, the lowest score for a player who completed all the tests was 5,601. I would like to know how he managed that. I scored 21,438 points which put me roughly halfway down complete list.

Players from the United States made up about 10% of the total, and I placed in roughly the same relative position in the rankings.

Only 49 players were using the Go programming language and only 9 of them completed all the tests. I came in 7th here, so no T-shirt for me.

World 739 players got 100%
Player   1 scored 44,880 points
Player 433 scored 21,438 points (me)
Player 739 scored  5,601 points
6,215 total players
2,929 scored at least some points.
The rest completed no tests and earned no points.

United States 71 players got 100%
Player   1 scored 40,073 points
Player  40 scored 21,438 points (me)
Player  71 scored 11,925 points
960 total players
388 scored at least some points.
The rest completed no tests and earned no points.
