Could someone explain why this first example of a solution for the coin change problem runs faster than the second? The code is cleaner in the first, but what makes it faster? Is it actually faster because there are fewer lines of code? Here's a link to the problem if you're not familiar.

## Coins in a Line 394

Viewed times. Functionally speaking, the first algorithm loops over all coins and can find how many of the current coin is needed to reach amount according to the previous count comparing with each of the values in the array, but starting from the current coin index.

Second algo makes unnecessary comparisons. I thik this is the issue. Active Oldest Votes. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. Sign up using Facebook. Sign up using Email and Password.

Python solution for problem Jan 16, Jan 30, You may want to sift through your change jar before you head to the bank to cash it in. Some rare coins, including these 15, can be worth a nice chunk of change.

That year, the U. Mint made pennies out of steel, then coated them in zinc for extra shine. However, it also accidentally made a copper batch.

Very few of them ever left the facility, so the ones that did are worth—well, a pretty penny. In20, to 24, doubled die pennies were released to the public, mostly as change given from cigarette vending machines. The doubling is visible on the letters and numbers almost entirely, with the bust of Lincoln remaining unaffected. State quarter collectors, you might want to check out your coin from the Badger State.

Of the million Wisconsin quarters minted inthousands were somehow marked with an extra leaf on a husk of corn; some speculate a Mint employee did it on purpose.

You should take special note of your pocket change if you live in the Tucson area—approximately of the coins have been discovered there. Inthe Royal Mint released just50p coins celebrating the th anniversary of the Royal Botanical Gardens. In this case, however, the mistake is in a pretty interesting place, which makes the coins worth more to some collectors.

In Novemberthe Royal Mint misprinted somewhere between 50, and20p pieces by accidentally omitting the date. In the U. There are some retired Mints as well. However, inthe Philadelphia Mint forgot to put their identifying mark on a Roosevelt dime, the first error of that kind that was ever made on a U. These days, dimes and quarters are made from an alloy of copper and nickel— no silver is involved at all.

But prior tocent and cent pieces were at least 90 percent Ag, which means they have worth on the metals market. Inthe Royal Mint accidentally made 2-pence coins with a die used on the reverse from In God We Trust?

Not inapparently. That was the year that the new George Washington dollar coins were released in the U.This problem is a variation of the problem discussed Coin Change Problem. Here instead of finding total number of possible solutions, we need to find the solution with minimum number of coins.

Below is recursive solution based on above recursive formula. The time complexity of above solution is exponential. If we draw the complete recursion tree, we can observer that many subproblems are solved again and again. So the subproblem for 6 is called twice. Since same suproblems are called again, this problem has Overlapping Subprolems property. So the min coins problem has both properties see this and this of a dynamic programming problem.

Like other typical Dynamic Programming DP problemsrecomputations of same subproblems can be avoided by constructing a temporary array table[][] in bottom up manner. Below is Dynamic Programming based solution.

A Naive recursive python program to find minimum of coins. Initialize result. Try every coin that has smaller value than V.

Driver program to test above function. This code is contributed by. V - coins[i]. So table[V] will have result. A Dynamic Programming based Python3 program to. Base case If given value V is 0. Initialize all table values as Infinite. Compute minimum coins required. Go through all coins smaller than i. Load Comments.Problem statement: Consider a row of n coins of values v1. We play a game against an opponent by alternating turns.

In each turn, a player selects either the first or last coin from the row, removes it from the row permanently, and receives the value of the coin. Determine the maximum possible amount of money we can definitely win if we move first. User chooses 8. Opponent chooses User chooses 7.

Opponent chooses 3. Opponent chooses 8. User chooses There are two choices: 1. The opponent intends to choose the coin which leaves the user with minimum value. The user chooses the jth coin with value Vj: The opponent either chooses ith coin or j-1 th coin. Following is recursive solution that is based on above two choices.

We take the maximum of two choices. Why Dynamic Programming? The above relation exhibits overlapping sub-problems. The above solution can be optimized by using less number of comparisons for every choice.

Please refer below. Optimal Strategy for a Game Set 2. Exercise Your thoughts on the strategy when the user wishes to only win instead of winning with the maximum value. Like above problem, number of coins is even.

Can Greedy approach work quite well and give an optimal solution?
