FASHION - Fashion Shows

A fashion show rates participants according to their level of hotness. Two different fashion shows were organized, one for men and the other for women. A date for the third is yet to be decided ;) .

Now the results of both fashion shows are out. The participants of both the fashion shows have decided to date each other, but as usual they have difficuly in choosing their partners. The Maximum Match dating serive (MMDS) comes to their rescue and matches them in such a way that that maximizes the hotness bonds for all couples.

If a man has been rated at hotness level x and a women at hotness level y, the value of their hotness bond is x*y.

Both fashion shows contain N participants each. MMDS has done its job and your job is to find the sum of hotness bonds for all the couples that MMDS has proposed.


The first line of the input contains an integer t, the number of test cases. t test cases follow.

Each test case consists of 3 lines:

  • The first line contains a single integer N (1 <= N <= 1000).
  • The second line contains N integers separated by single spaces denoting the hotness levels of the men.
  • The third line contains N integers separated by single spaces denoting the hotness levels of the women.

All hotness ratings are on a scale of 0 to 10.


For each test case output a single line containing a single integer denoting the sum of the hotness bonds for all pairs that MMDS has proposed.

The description is misguiding.
The input has NOT been sorted for optimal pairings.

My solution is giving TLE when using sort function and bubble sort. Please help.

I feel embarrassed that I was hindered by the pitfall that the other Python users seem to have been. Probably wouldn't have happened if I hadn't been lazy and had made my own sort method.

MMDS's irresponsible actions costed me a WA -_-
You had one job, MMDS. Just. One. Job.

"MMDS has done its job..."

Seems like MMDS hasn't done its job. :/
