2611. Mice and Cheese
Description
There are two mice and n
different types of cheese, each type of cheese should be eaten by exactly one mouse.
A point of the cheese with index i
(0indexed) is:
reward1[i]
if the first mouse eats it.reward2[i]
if the second mouse eats it.
You are given a positive integer array reward1
, a positive integer array reward2
, and a nonnegative integer k
.
Return the maximum points the mice can achieve if the first mouse eats exactly k
types of cheese.
Example 1:
Input: reward1 = [1,1,3,4], reward2 = [4,4,1,1], k = 2 Output: 15 Explanation: In this example, the first mouse eats the 2^{nd} (0indexed) and the 3^{rd} types of cheese, and the second mouse eats the 0^{th} and the 1^{st} types of cheese. The total points are 4 + 4 + 3 + 4 = 15. It can be proven that 15 is the maximum total points that the mice can achieve.
Example 2:
Input: reward1 = [1,1], reward2 = [1,1], k = 2 Output: 2 Explanation: In this example, the first mouse eats the 0^{th} (0indexed) and 1^{st} types of cheese, and the second mouse does not eat any cheese. The total points are 1 + 1 = 2. It can be proven that 2 is the maximum total points that the mice can achieve.
Constraints:
1 <= n == reward1.length == reward2.length <= 10^{5}
1 <= reward1[i], reward2[i] <= 1000
0 <= k <= n
Solutions
Solution 1: Greedy + Sort
We can first give all the cheese to the second mouse. Next, consider giving $k$ pieces of cheese to the first mouse. How should we choose these $k$ pieces of cheese? Obviously, if we give the $i$th piece of cheese from the second mouse to the first mouse, the change in the score is $reward1[i]  reward2[i]$. We hope that this change is as large as possible, so that the total score is maximized.
Therefore, we sort the cheese in decreasing order of reward1[i]  reward2[i]
. The first $k$ pieces of cheese are eaten by the first mouse, and the remaining cheese is eaten by the second mouse to obtain the maximum score.
Time complexity $O(n \times \log n)$, space complexity $O(n)$. Where $n$ is the number of cheeses.
