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.

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

 Codeforces rating system | Codeforces rating Newbie to Legendary Grandmaster- Codeforces is one of the most popular platforms for competitive programmers and  codeforces rating matters a lot  .  Competitive Programming  teaches you to find the easiest solution in the quickest possible way. CP enhances your problem-solving and debugging skills giving you real-time fun. It's brain-sport. As you start solving harder and harder problems in live-contests your analytical and rational thinking intensifies. To have a good codeforces profile makes a good impression on the interviewer. If you have a good  codeforces profile so it is very easy to get a referral for product base company like amazon, google , facebook etc.So in this blog I have explained everything about codeforces rating system. What are different titles on codeforces- based on rating codeforces divide rating into 10 part. Newbie Pupil Specialist Expert Candidate Codemaster Master International Master Grandmaster Internat

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

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).
