# Stuck midway in Sanskar

 0 I have managed to generate all the possible subsets of the required sum. Here is an idea of where I am : https://www.facebook.com/ajax/mercury/attachments/photo.php?fbid=1558562517694731&mode=contain&width=176&height=176 Now,since I can't chose (1,2,3,5) and (1,2,8) together I need K disjoint subsets which I have been thinking on how to get.I initially thought of storing all the pairs in a double dimensional array and then bruteforcing random K subsets if it works out.But I thought I won't be able to pass within the given time limit so I didn't apply this logic. This situation is similar to the problem Exact Cover which is NP Complete I guess. Also,keep DP as far away as possible from the solution because don't know it much.

 0 have a look at the editorials and also look at the comments there . sanskar editorials answered 15 Dec '14, 20:09 1.2k●12 accept rate: 18% People seem to have attempted the problem in a different manner than I have attempted. I want to know if there is a path which leads to the correct output from where I have left off my solution. (15 Dec '14, 20:12)
 0 The link above is broken. However, I think you are doing something this way. answered 15 Dec '14, 23:53 3★damn_me 2.6k●2●13●36 accept rate: 24% Here is the code till the point I've reached : http://ideone.com/ML0zeR (16 Dec '14, 02:43) This gives me all subsets of the required sum but since we can't take both (1,2,3) and (1,5) I need to code it after this step to take into consideration only disjoint k subsets.
