# 3401 - Colored Cubes

Colored Cubes
Time limit: 3.000 seconds

There are several colored cubes. All of them are of the same size but they may be colored differently. Each

face of these cubes has a single color. Colors of distinct faces of a cube may or may not be the same.

Two cubes are said to beidentically colored if some suitable rotations of one of the cubes give identical

looks to both of the cubes. For example, two cubes shown in Figure 2 are identically colored. A set of cubes is said to be identically colored if every pair of them are identically colored.

A cube and its mirror image are not necessarily identically colored. For example, two cubes shown in Figure 3

are not identically colored.

You can make a given set of cubes identically colored by repainting some of the faces, whatever colors the

faces may have. In Figure 4, repainting four faces makes the three cubes identically colored and repainting fewer faces will never do.

Your task is to write a program to calculate the minimum number of faces that needs to be repainted for a

given set of cubes to become identically colored.

Input：

The input is a sequence of datasets. A dataset consists of a header and a body appearing in this order. A

header is a line containing one positive integernand the body following it consists of n lines. You can assume that1n4 . Each line in a body contains six color names separated by a space. A color name consists of a word or words connected with a hyphen (-). A word consists of one or more lowercase letters. You can assume that a color name is at most 24-characters long including hyphens.

A dataset corresponds to a set of colored cubes. The integern corresponds to the number of cubes. Each line

of the body corresponds to a cube and describes the colors of its faces. Color names in a line is ordered in accordance with the numbering of faces shown in Figure 5. A line color1color2color3color4color5color6

corresponds to a cube colored as shown in Figure 6.

The end of the input is indicated by a line containing a single zero. It is not a dataset nor a part of a

dataset.

Output：

For each dataset, output a line containing the minimum number of faces that need to be repainted to make the

set of cub es identically colored.

题目意思是有n个带颜色的立方体，立方体的每个面都涂有一种颜色。要求重新涂尽量少的颜色使得所有立方体完全相同。也就是说将一个立方体旋转后，使得立方体对应面的颜色相同。由于给你的立方体最多只有4个，暴力枚举的方法可行。枚举则可以通过枚举每个正方体的姿态（将标准姿态定为正面为1、右面为2、顶面为3、底面为4、左面为5、右面为6）即通过旋转来改变姿态，然后对于6个面，选出一个出现次数最多的颜色作为“标准”，将和其颜色不相同的进行重新涂色。当选择一个面朝上时，朝正面的情况有4种，因此每个立方体拥有24种姿态。（立方体的各面顺序：正，右，底，左，后）

scarlet面为1，二朝上时，scarlet面为2；）
