Hail!
I cannot think of any DP solution for second day.. Can anyone please give me a small hint on how to solve this problem dynamically?.

Now I lay me down to sleep...

Since n is small, you can think of Dp (bitmask). 2^16 is small enough. Hope it helps.

### Re: 10911 - Forming Quiz Teams

Hello!
Thank you Jan for your hint.
At first look, I thought this hint will not be enough for me to understand how to solve..
But after thinking a bit, I developed an algorithm.

I have an array of 2^16 elements - the elements of array are of type 'double', index is a bitmask, marking which people are taken
First of all, I initialize all bitmasks with two bits in them with simply given distance.. for example if distance from 1st man (0th) to 2nd (1st in zero-numeration) is 15, then a[3]=15 (3 is ..00011 in bits). I also push all these values to queue
Then I make N-1 steps of the following:
****then I take all n*(n-1) pairs and look if this pair is not present in bitmask.
********if it is really not present, then I take another bitmask = current bitmask + two bits for people from the pair and check value of a[another bitmask]
********if this value is greater, which can be achieved with current pair, I overwrite it and add 'another bitmask' into queue2.
****queue = queue2

Indeed, I used set from STL instead of queue, to avoid repeating (maybe its not needed)

My solution got Accepted in 1.44 time.
I wonder if this algorithm was expected from me

Thank you again, Jan

Good luck
Now I lay me down to sleep...

Why you need a queue? Pick two person(i,j),set corresponding bit and recursively find d[j]+call(mask).

### Re: 10911 - Forming Quiz Teams

I think branch-and-bound with proper tuning is sufficient to solve this problem
Have you ever...
• Wanted to work at best companies?
• Struggled with interview problems that could be solved in 15 minutes?
• Wished you could study real-world problems?
If so, you need to read Elements of Programming Interviews.

I got AC in more than 3 seconds.. is there a greedy way to do it or something? The times were really fast..
My timing was .082 sec. I used O(2^n* n) DP. When dividing the original problem into subproblems, you only need to match only one person with (n-1) different persons. You don't need to try every pair.

Regards
Sanny
Can you tell me how to know who are (n-1) different persons.

### Re: 10911 - Forming Quiz Teams

@brianfry...Why is it that I when I run only case 98, i get correct output and when i run all 100 cases together, i get a different incorrect answer for the same case. I have initialized dp array before every test case. Any help?
PS: Same with some more test cases too...

my code gives the same output as yours for the above test cases but still i am getting wrong ans. And i have not declared hypot. i am new to Uva and don't know how to use hypot.
it will be very helpful if you tell me how and when to use it(hypot).
