Looking at the past three years, Oct20 seems somehow similar to Nov17, another "find-constrained-algorithm" challenge. Nov17 was actually solved by 23 people only.
On the other hand, both Oct20 and July20 deal with linear-recurrenced sequences, candidate solutions can be analyzed with similar linear algebra methods.
Yup, the number of solvers was barely able to reach 25, so clarification didn't have a special boost.
