# Problem A. 761. (November 2019)

A. 761. Let $\displaystyle n \ge 3$ be a positive integer. We say that a set $\displaystyle S$ of positive integers is good if $\displaystyle |S| = n$, no element of $\displaystyle S$ is a multiple of $\displaystyle n$, and the sum of all elements of $\displaystyle S$ is not a multiple of $\displaystyle n$ either. Find, in terms of $\displaystyle n$, the least positive integer $\displaystyle d$ for which there exists a good set $\displaystyle S$ such that there are exactly $\displaystyle d$ nonempty subsets of $\displaystyle S$ the sum of whose elements is a multiple of $\displaystyle n$.
