Program to find maximum number of people we can make happy in Python

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Suppose we have a list customers and another list mood, these two are of same length, we also have another integer k. Now on each minute i, customers[i] number of people come to the store and when mood[i] = 1, it indicates the customers are happy and when mood[i] = 0, then they are sad. We can set a sublist of size k of mood to 1s, finally we have to find the maximum number of people we can make happy.

So, if the input is like customers = [2, 3, 6, 6, 3] mood = [1, 1, 0, 0, 0] k = 2, then the output will be 17 because if we set mood[2] and mood[3] to 1, then the total mood will be 2 + 3 + 6 + 6 = 17 customers happy.

To solve this, we will follow these steps −

  • n := size of mood
  • a := a list of size (n + 1) and fill with 0
  • s := 0
  • for i in range 0 to n - 1, do
    • a[i + 1] := a[i]
    • if mood[i] is non-zero, then
      • s := s + customers[i]
    • otherwise,
      • a[i + 1] := a[i + 1] + customers[i]
  • d := 0
  • for i in range k to n, do
    • d := maximum of d and (a[i] - a[i - k])
  • return s + d

Example

Let us see the following implementation to get better understanding −

def solve(customers, mood, k):
   n = len(mood)
   a = [0] * (n + 1)
   s = 0
   for i in range(n):
      a[i + 1] = a[i]
      if mood[i]:
         s += customers[i]
      else:
         a[i + 1] += customers[i]
   d = 0
   for i in range(k, n + 1):
      d = max(d, a[i] - a[i - k])
   return s + d

customers = [2, 3, 6, 6, 3]
mood = [1, 1, 0, 0, 0]
k = 2
print(solve(customers, mood, k))

Input

[2, 3, 6, 6, 3], [1, 1, 0, 0, 0], 2

Output

17
