MSTICK - Wooden Sticks
There is a pile of n wooden sticks. The length and weight of each stick are known in advance. The sticks are to be processed by a woodworking machine in one by one fashion. It needs some time, called setup time, for the machine to prepare processing a stick. The setup times are associated with cleaning operations and changing tools and shapes in the machine. The setup times of the woodworking machine are given as follows: (a) The setup time for the first wooden stick is 1 minute. (b) Right after processing a stick of length l and weight w , the machine will need no setup time for a stick of length l' and weight w' if l ≤ l' and w ≤ w'. Otherwise, it will need 1 minute for setup. You are to find the minimum setup time to process a given pile of n wooden sticks. For example, if you have five sticks whose pairs of length and weight are ( 9 , 4 ) , ( 2 , 5 ) , ( 1 , 2 ) , ( 5 , 3 ) , and ( 4 , 1 ) , then the minimum setup time should be 2 minutes since there is a sequence of pairs ( 4 , 1 ) , ( 5 , 3 ) , ( 9 , 4 ) , ( 1 , 2 ) , ( 2 , 5 ) .
The input consists of T test cases. The number of test cases (T) is given in the first line of the input file. Each test case consists of two lines: The first line has an integer n , 1 <= n <= 5000 , that represents the number of wooden sticks in the test case, and the second line contains 2n positive integers l1 , w1 , l2 , w2 ,..., ln , wn , each of magnitude at most 10000 , where li and wi are the length and weight of the i th wooden stick, respectively. The 2n integers are delimited by one or more spaces. SAMPLE INPUT 3 5 4 9 5 2 2 1 3 5 1 4 3 2 2 1 1 2 2 3 1 3 2 2 3 1
The output should contain the minimum setup time in minutes, one per line. SAMPLE OUTPUT 2 1 3
Extra challenge try cases if l1 < l2 and w1<=w2, l1 <= l2 and w1<w2. l1 < l2 and w1<w2 (same as MDOLLS).
if u have solved MDOLLS then i think u don't need to code it again :P but be careful about sorting and remember l1<=l2 && w1<=w2 .
plz can any one give me some test cases
Can anyone give more testcase(s)?
Similar problem is MDOLLS.
