# 1383. Maximum Performance of a Team (Hard)

There are n engineers numbered from 1 to n and two arrays: speed and efficiency, where speed[i] and efficiency[i] represent the speed and efficiency for the i-th engineer respectively. Return the maximum performance of a team composed of at most k engineers, since the answer can be a huge number, return this modulo 10^9 + 7.

The performance of a team is the sum of their engineers' speeds multiplied by the minimum efficiency among their engineers.

Example 1:

Input: n = 6, speed = [2,10,3,1,5,8], efficiency = [5,4,3,9,7,2], k = 2
Output: 60
Explanation:
We have the maximum performance of the team by selecting engineer 2 (with speed=10 and efficiency=4) and engineer 5 (with speed=5 and efficiency=7). That is, performance = (10 + 5) * min(4, 7) = 60.


Example 2:

Input: n = 6, speed = [2,10,3,1,5,8], efficiency = [5,4,3,9,7,2], k = 3
Output: 68
Explanation:
This is the same example as the first but k = 3. We can select engineer 1, engineer 2 and engineer 5 to get the maximum performance of the team. That is, performance = (2 + 10 + 5) * min(5, 4, 7) = 68.


Example 3:

Input: n = 6, speed = [2,10,3,1,5,8], efficiency = [5,4,3,9,7,2], k = 4
Output: 72


Constraints:

• 1 <= n <= 10^5
• speed.length == n
• efficiency.length == n
• 1 <= speed[i] <= 10^5
• 1 <= efficiency[i] <= 10^8
• 1 <= k <= n

## Solution 1. Greedy

### Intuition

For a given efficiency, we pick all works with the same or better efficiency. If the number of workers is greater than k, we pick k fastest workers.

### Algorithm

We greedily try each engineer from the most efficient one to the least one.

For each engineer:

• first try adding him to the team and add his speed[i] to the sum.
• If after the addition there are more than k engineers in the team, pop the one with the least speed, and deduct his speed from sum.
• try to update the answer using sum * speed[i].
