Vaccine Production December Long challenge Problem Solution

 Problem Statement-

This problem is taken from codechef December long challenge.Let's read Problems statement.

Increasing COVID cases have created panic amongst the people of Chefland, so the government is starting to push for production of a vaccine. It has to report to the media about the exact date when vaccines will be available.

There are two companies which are producing vaccines for COVID. Company A starts producing vaccines on day D1 and it can produce V1 vaccines per day. Company B starts producing vaccines on day D2 and it can produce V2 vaccines per day. Currently, we are on day 1.

We need a total of P vaccines. How many days are required to produce enough vaccines? Formally, find the smallest integer d such that we have enough vaccines at the end of the day d.


  • The first and only line of the input contains five space-separated integers D1V1D2V2 and P.


Print a single line containing one integer ― the smallest required number of days.


  • 1D1,V1,D2,V2100
  • 1P1,000


Subtask #1 (30 points): D1=D2=1

Subtask #2 (70 points): original constraints

Example Input 1

1 2 1 3 14

Example Output 1



Since D1=D2=1, we can produce V1+V2=5 vaccines per day. In 3 days, we produce 15 vaccines, which satisfies our requirement of 14 vaccines.

Example Input 2

5 4 2 10 100

Example Output 2



There are 0 vaccines produced on the first day, 10 vaccines produced on each of days 23 and 4, and 14 vaccines produced on the fifth and each subsequent day. In 9 days, it makes a total of 0+103+145=100 vaccines.

 Apple Division CSES Problem Set Solution | CSES Problem Set Solution Apple division with code - Apple Division CSES Problem Solution Easy Explanation. Apple division is problem is taken form cses introductory problem set.Let's Read Problem statement first. Problem Statement- Time limit:  1.00 s   Memory limit:  512 MB There are  n n  apples with known weights. Your task is to divide the apples into two groups so that the difference between the weights of the groups is minimal. Input The first input line has an integer  n n : the number of apples. The next line has  n n  integers  p 1 , p 2 , … , p n p 1 , p 2 , … , p n : the weight of each apple. Output Print one integer: the minimum difference between the weights of the groups. Constraints 1 ≤ n ≤ 20 1 ≤ n ≤ 20 1 ≤ p i ≤ 10 9 1 ≤ p i ≤ 10 9 Example Input: 5 3 2 7 4 1 Output: 1 Explanation: Group 1 has weights 2, 3 and 4 (total weight 9), and group 2 has weights 1 and 7 (total weight 8).

Merge Two sorted array Without Extra Space

Problem statement-  Given two sorted arrays arr1[] and arr2[] of sizes N and M in non-decreasing order. Merge them in sorted order without using any extra space. Modify arr1 so that it contains the first N elements and modify arr2 so that it contains the last M elements.    Example 1: Input:  N = 4, arr1[] = [1 3 5 7]  M = 5, arr2[] = [0 2 6 8 9] Output:  arr1[] = [0 1 2 3] arr2[] = [5 6 7 8 9] Explanation: After merging the two  non-decreasing arrays, we get,  0 1 2 3 5 6 7 8 9.   Example 2: Input:  N = 2, arr1[] = [10, 12]  M = 3, arr2[] = [5 18 20] Output:  arr1[] = [5 10] arr2[] = [12 18 20] Explanation: After merging two sorted arrays  we get 5 10 12 18 20. Your Task: You don't need to read input or print anything. You only need to complete the function merge() that takes arr1, arr2, N and M as input parameters and modifies them in-place so that they look like the sorted merged array when concatenated. Expected Time Complexity:  O((n+m) log(n+m)) Expected Auxilliary Space: O(1
