I’m out of stories. For years I’ve been writing stories, some rather silly, just to make simple problems look difficult and complex problems look easy. But, alas, not for this one.
You’re given a non empty string made in its entirety from opening and closing braces. Your task is to find the minimum number of “operations” needed to make the string stable. The definition for being stable is as follows:
 An empty string is stable.
 If S is stable, then {S} is also stable.
 If S and T are both stable, then ST (the concatenation of the two) is also stable.
All of these strings are stable: {}, {}{}, and {{}{}}; But none of these: }{, {{}{, nor {}{.
The only operation allowed on the string is to replace an opening brace with a closing brace, or visaversa.
Input
Your program will be tested on one or more data sets. Each data set is described on a single line. The line is a nonempty string of opening and closing braces and nothing else. No string has more than 2000 braces. All sequences are of even length.
The last line of the input is made of one or more ’’ (minus signs.)
Output
For each test case, print the following line:
k. N
Where k is the test case number (starting at one,) and N is the minimum number of operations needed to convert the given string into a balanced one.
Example
Input: }{
{}{}{}
{{{}

Output: 1. 2
2. 0
3. 1

THANKS FOR THE strip() in python :)

Remember about `strip()` in python!

Neither DP nor stack require.

Neither DP nor Stack, simple one iteration is enough

any unusual test case which might cause a wrong answer

It can easily solve using a stack, but what approach should take to solve using dp?

take care of the output format

For people coding in Python remember to do rstrip() on your input. The input parameter is vague!

dp not needed.

DP solution passed after 3 WA. BTW use scanf instead of getline or cin. Also declare the dp array as global. Last edit: 20190430 17:08:32
