Language: Treats for the Cows
Description 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.
The first treat is sold on day 1 and has age a=1. Each subsequent day increases the age by 1. Input Line 1: A single integer, N
Lines 2..N+1: Line i+1 contains the value of treat v(i) Output Line 1: The maximum revenue FJ can achieve by selling the treats Sample Input 5 1 3 1 5 2 Sample Output 43 Hint Explanation of the sample:
Five treats. On the first day FJ can sell either treat #1 (value 1) or treat #5 (value 2). FJ sells the treats (values 1, 3, 1, 5, 2) in the following order of indices: 1, 5, 2, 3, 4, making 1x1 + 2x2 + 3x3 + 4x1 + 5x5 = 43. Source |
