TRT - Treats for the Cows
FJ has purchased N (1 <= N <= 2000) yummy treats for the cows who get money for giving vast amounts of milk. FJ sells one treat per day and wants to maximize the money he receives over a given period time. The treats are interesting for many reasons:
- The treats are numbered 1..N and stored sequentially in single file in a long box that is open at both ends. On any day, FJ can retrieve one treat from either end of his stash of treats.
- Like fine wines and delicious cheeses, the treats improve with age and command greater prices.
- The treats are not uniform: some are better and have higher intrinsic value. Treat i has value v(i) (1 <= v(i) <= 1000).
- Cows pay more for treats that have aged longer: a cow will pay v(i)*a for a treat of age a.
Given the values v(i) of each of the treats lined up in order of the index i in their box, what is the greatest value FJ can receive for them if he orders their sale optimally?
The first treat is sold on day 1 and has age a=1. Each subsequent day increases the age by 1.
Line 1: A single integer, N
Lines 2..N+1: Line i+1 contains the value of treat v(i)
The maximum revenue FJ can achieve by selling the treats

Why map is giving TLE in this problem? But using 2D dp of fixed size got accepted?
Go for MCM!
use recursion with memorization
AC in two GO ..avoid memset function!
first think of n3 solution then convert it into n2 (how we get age from segment l to r) these type of problem are variation of mcm where smaller interval is processed first then we solve for bigger interval ps try to do iterative
Just declare both dp and input array globally otherwise it will give you a TLE
Don't use a map gives TLE.
This was discussed in Errichto dp video 3. He called it line of wines.
AC in one go!! Use memoization technique DP
why greedy approach is not working ?
