clarification on Q2


what does it mean by "Note two or more robots working on the same job or building the same robot won't accelerate the progress." Can a robot finish one job and copy itself within one hour at the same time? more specifically (if this is allowed in the contest), why does input "10 1" yields 5?

It means that you can not make 2 robots working together to finish a job in 0.5 hour.
No. One robot can only do one thing at a time.
Sample Explanation. One possible working progress:

R1   making R2         #1 Job          #2 Job           #5 Job       #8 Job
R2                     making R3       #3 Job           #6 Job       #9 Job
R3                                     #4 Job           #7 Job       #10 Job
