Frog Sort codechef February 2021 long challenge editorial


 Frog Sort codechef February 2021  long challenge editorial -

There are N frogs (numbered 1 through N) in a line. For each valid i, the i-th frog is initially at the position i, it has weight Wi, and whenever you hit its back, it jumps a distance Li to the right, i.e. its position increases by Li. The weights of the frogs are pairwise distinct.

You can hit the back of each frog any number of times (possibly zero, not necessarily the same for all frogs) in any order. The frogs do not intefere with each other, so there can be any number of frogs at the same time at each position.

Your task is to sort the frogs in the increasing order of weight using the smallest possible number of hits. In other words, after all the hits are performed, then for each pair of frogs (i,j) such that Wi<Wj, the position of the i-th frog should be strictly smaller than the position of the j-th frog. Find the smallest number of hits needed to achieve such a state.


  • The first line of the input contains a single integer T denoting the number of test cases. The description of T test cases follows.
  • The first line of each test case contains a single integer N.
  • The second line contains N space-separated integers W1,W2,,WN.
  • The third line contains N space-separated integers L1,L2,,LN.


For each test case, print a single line containing one integer ― the smallest number of times you need to hit the backs of the frogs.


  • 1T2104
  • 2N4
  • 1WiN for each valid i
  • 1Li5 for each valid i
  • no two frogs have the same weight


Subtask #1 (50 points):

  • T=50
  • N=2

Subtask #2 (50 points): original constraints

Example Input

3 1 2
1 4 5
3 2 1
1 1 1
2 1 4 3
4 1 2 4

Example Output



Example case 1: We can hit the back of the first frog three times.

Example case 2: We can hit the back of the first frog four times, then hit the back of the second frog two times.

Problem Statement- 


Hint - fix the minimum weight element and arrange the rest of elements.

Vaccine Distribution Codechef December Long challenge solution 2020

 Vaccine Distribution  Codechef December Long challenge solution 2020- This Problem vaccine distribution is taken from December long challenge 2020. lets read problem statement. Problem statement- Finally, a COVID vaccine is out on the market and the Chefland government has asked you to form a plan to distribute it to the public as soon as possible. There are a total of  N N  people with ages  a 1 , a 2 , … , a N a 1 , a 2 , … , a N . There is only one hospital where vaccination is done and it is only possible to vaccinate up to  D D  people per day. Anyone whose age is  ≥ 80 ≥ 80  or  ≤ 9 ≤ 9  is considered to be  at risk . On each day, you may not vaccinate both a person who is at risk and a person who is not at risk. Find the smallest number of days needed to vaccinate everyone. Input The first line of the input contains a single integer  T T  denoting the number of test cases. The description of  T T  test cases follows. The first line of each test case contains two space-separ

Codechef February long challenge solution 2021

   Codechef February  long challenge solution 2021- Hey guys Welcome Again, A small update CodeChef February  long challenge solution 2021 starting from 1st week of beb  2021 . Codechef long challenge is one of the popular contests of CodeChef you should participate in codechef Feb  long challenge.This is first contest of codechef in 2021 so good luck. And wish you happy new year. Contest link- I will post the solution after Contest.Stay tuned. About CodeChef  February  long challenge solution 2021: CodeChef Long Challenge is a 10-day monthly coding contest where you can show off your computer programming skills. The significance being - it gives you enough time to think about a problem, try different ways of attacking the problem, read the concepts etc. If you’re usually slow at solving problems and have ample time at hand, this is ideal for you. We also put in a lot of efforts in getting quality problems, w

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
