Two teams of robots are playing the game of cut-or-bend . The rules of the game are very simple:
- The team that has processed more details than its opponent is a winner.
- A detail is considered to be processed if it is either bent or cut.
- Each robot can perform both bending and cutting, but during the game it can perform only one of two functions.
- Each team consists of N players, K of them must be occupied with cutting. All the rest must be occupied with bending.
Input: Three arguments. Two lists of integers of equal size representing team's stats. An integer - a number of team's members that have to be occupied with cutting.
Output: An integer - the maximum score which can be obtained by the team.
Example:Consider having input to be [4, 2, 1], [2, 5, 3], 2 . The best score is obtained by assigning the first and the third robots to perform cutting and the second robot to perform bending.
cut : [4, _, 1] -> total: 5 bend: [_, 5, _] -> total: 5 ------------------------------ total: 10
max_score([4, 2, 1], [2, 5, 3], 2) == 10 max_score([7, 1, 4, 4], [5, 3, 4, 3], 2) == 18 max_score([5, 5, 5], [5, 5, 5], 1) == 15
How it’s used: This is a discrete optimization puzzle. As Leonhard Euler has stated, "Nothing in the world takes place without optimization, and there is no doubt that all aspects of the world that have a rational basis can be explained by optimization methods."
Precondition: 3 ≤ N ≤ 50 1 ≤ K ≤ N - 1 1 ≤ list[i] ≤ 100
CheckiO Extensions allow you to use local files to solve missions. More info in a blog post.
In order to install CheckiO client you'll need installed Python (version at least 3.8)
Install CheckiO Client first:
pip3 install checkio_client
Configure your tool
checkio --domain=py config --key=
Sync solutions into your local folder
(in beta testing) Launch local server so your browser can use it and sync solution between local file end extension on the fly. (doesn't work for safari)
checkio serv -d
Alternatevly, you can install Chrome extension or FF addon
checkio install-plugin --ff
checkio install-plugin --chromium
