# IPCTRAIN - Editorial

Greedy,Heap

# PROBLEM:

You have an upcoming camp. There are N trainers. The camp runs for D days.Each day,there can be at most one lecture. The ith trainer arrives on day Di and then stays till the end of the camp. He also wants to teach exactly Ti lectures. For each lecture that a trainer was not able to teach,his sadness level will be increased by Si. You are the main organizer of the contest. You want to find minimum total sadness of the trainers.

# EXPLANATION:

Let's assign our trainers starting from the first day of the camp. At each day adding arriving trainers to our set of trainers.

Each day should be assigned to only one trainer, it's obvious that we should assign the trainer with maximum sadness to this lecture, so our set (container) should be a heap sorting trainers by their sadness value. In fact we should know also the number of days each lecturer wants to serve in, so we take the lecturer with maximum sadness from our heap and decrease his demand by 1. In case he still has lectures he would like to do, we keep him in the heap, otherwise we just pop him out.

After finishing all days, some teachers may have some remaining lectures they wanted to teach but we couldn't find such days for them. Let's denote the number of lectures the ith trainer couldn't teach by remi So our answer would be :

$answer = \sum_{i=1}^{i=N} rem_i * S_i$

 8 This question literally screamed "PRIORITY QUEUE" in my ears. One of the good questions which can be solved with knowledge of proper data type!! Honestly, i saw priority queue code for first time in "Cooking Schedule" editorial (one of the answers told that "it can also be solved using priority queue") and it made life so simple for me here. answered 17 Jul '17, 15:30 15.5k●1●20●66 accept rate: 18% 2 Solution : Great! Comments : Extraordinary :D (17 Jul '17, 15:38) Lol XD. It just came into my mind when i read "A trainer who comes to the camp stays there till end of camp" :p (17 Jul '17, 15:40)

 1 @lord_ozb: You have used a double loop here which caused the time to exceed the limit.  for(int i = 0; i < d; i++){ int x = -1; int max = Integer.MIN_VALUE; for(int j = 0; j <= i; j++){ if(queue[j].size() != 0){ Trainer temp = queue[j].peek(); if(temp.sad > max){ max = temp.sad; x = j;  answered 18 Jul '17, 09:05 21●1 accept rate: 0%

 0 If I solve the above question using heaps as stated, then on popping out the trainer which doesn't have any lecture remaining and at the very same time maintaining the sort would require the complexity O(n). On the other hand if we just extract him from the heap and heapify using time complexity O(lg n) would disturb the sort. How do i proceed? answered 18 Jul '17, 19:37 1 accept rate: 0% use c++ Priority Queue (19 Jul '17, 01:28)

 0 My solution is also failing for Subtask 2 don't know why. Though the logic is same as explained in editorial. https://www.codechef.com/viewsolution/19193154 answered 13 Jul '18, 01:18 0★sgrpwr 1●1 accept rate: 0% long sadness = 0; for(Teacher t: remaining) { sadness += t.lectures*t.sadness; Declare t.sadness as long instead of int or use type casting as sadness+=1LL * t.lectures * t.sadness; - because product of 2 int is stored in the int type and then the overflowed result is stored in sadness.
