# Problem

Find the maximal value of the profit for playing a single-player game described in the problem statement

# How to get 20 points

Let's generate all permutations of the order of the questions and calculate the score for each of them. Among the scores for all the orders, choose the maximal. Then just output the maximal obtained score. Since there are exactly N! permutations of the set of N questions and a check of a single order takes O(N) time, the complexity of such a solution is O(N!*N).

In C++ you can use STL routine next_permutation for simple generation of all the permutations.

This solution solves the first subtask, however, it is too slow to get the full points.

# How to get 100 points

Let us calculate K - the number of the questions that would be answered correctly by Chef. Clearly, the ith question will be answered correctly if the ith sumbol in the first string equals to the ith symbol in the second string.

If K = N, there is no other option than Chef answers all the questions correctly and gets WN dollars of profit.

Otherwise, using any question than can be answered incorrectly, we can obtain any number of correct answers between 0 and K inclusively. Then the answer is, therefore, the maximal value of Wi for 0 ≤ i ≤ K.

The complexity of such a solution is O(N) for a single test case.

 0 Whats wrong with this code? answered 12 Oct '15, 15:14 31●2 accept rate: 0% for (j=0; j<1001; j++) W[i]=0; The above line is wrong. make it, for (j=0; j<1001; j++) W[j]=0; This gives 100pts (12 Oct '15, 15:25) Thanks for pointing it out. Really feeling bad that I missed 80 points due to that! :( (12 Oct '15, 20:06)
 0 I too did the same thing here. But why still my code got WA? https://www.codechef.com/viewsolution/8530210 answered 12 Oct '15, 15:21 2★thabraze 1 accept rate: 0% "If K = N, there is no other option than Chef answers all the questions correctly and gets WN dollars of profit." (12 Oct '15, 15:23) sandeep93★ You are not considering the case where all the answers are correct. Your modified code : https://www.codechef.com/viewsolution/8530809 This gives AC (12 Oct '15, 15:30)
 0 can any body please tell me where my solution is failing answered 12 Oct '15, 18:08 12●1 accept rate: 0% @prasadram126 Please change long int to long long int and then try again. The constraints of the problem are such that they need a datatype as large as long long int.

 0 please check what's wrong with this code my code answered 13 Oct '15, 01:08 1 accept rate: 0% @anuragkumar33 I think you need to make arrays A and B a little bit bigger (say, 1010), because string of length N needs N + 1 byte of memory (string itself plus '\0').

 0 can any one tell what's wrong with this code https://www.codechef.com/viewsolution/8437975 answered 13 Oct '15, 19:08 1 accept rate: 0% If $cnt = n$, Chef answers all questions correctly and there is no other option than Chef gets $W_n$ dollars of profit, because he can't leave the game when he wants. For example, for test 3 ABC ABC 10 100 20 30 answer is 30, not 100. (13 Oct '15, 19:36) eartemov5★

 0 Hi every one cay any one please tell me whats wrong with this solution? After verifying with setter's solutions i modified my solution which is giving AC ,i got shocked because both solutions are same in perceptive of algorithms .The difference between two solutions are in the first one using one for loop i am checking no.of correct answers and taking input of w's , in the second solution i have separated the above logic into two different for loops , both are doing the same thing then why i got WA for first solution can one please tell me either reason or any test case where it's failling? answered 24 Oct '15, 15:52 12●1 accept rate: 0%
