SUMITR - Sums in a Triangle

Let us consider a triangle of numbers in which a number appears in the first line, two numbers appear in the second line etc. Develop a program which will compute the largest of the sums of numbers that appear on the paths starting from the top towards the base, so that:

  • on each path the next number is located on the row below, more precisely either directly below or below and one place to the right;
  • the number of rows is strictly positive, but less than 100;
  • all numbers are positive integers between O and 99.

Take care about your fingers, do not use more than 256 bytes of code.


In the first line integer n - the number of test cases (equal to about 1000). Then n test cases follow. Each test case starts with the number of lines which is followed by their content.


For each test case write the determined value in a separate line.


2 1
1 2 3
1 2 
4 1 2
2 3 1 1

Wrote whole code in single Line with some optimization.... Finally AC... (253 Bytes) in c++

It takes LARGEST POSSIBLE space optimisation...

Man , a lot of space optimisations ,took my code to 255b . AC finally :D

you are new devil for java users now ;P

250B, AC in ONE GO!
memory constraint is unnecessary!

The author must really hate properly formatted code.

Good question for DP beginners. But the space constraint is unnecessary.

kg93999: 2017-01-20 20:33:53

impossible to do in java :(

prasoonbatham: 2017-01-07 20:14:20

Unnecessary space constraints on file :(

waste of time............why the point of 256 bytes
