Guess Number Higher or Lower II

[leetcode]Guess Number Higher or Lower II



We are playing the Guess Game. The game is as follows:

I pick a number from 1 to n. You have to guess which number I picked.

Every time you guess wrong, I’ll tell you whether the number I picked is higher or lower.

However, when you guess a particular number x, and you guess wrong, you pay $x. You win the game when you guess the number I picked.


n = 10, I pick 8.

First round:  You guess 5, I tell you that it's higher. You pay $5.
Second round: You guess 7, I tell you that it's higher. You pay $7.
Third round:  You guess 9, I tell you that it's lower. You pay $9.

Game over. 8 is the number I picked.

You end up paying $5 + $7 + $9 = $21.

Given a particular n ≥ 1, find out how much money you need to have to guarantee a win.


class Solution {
  #define inf 0x3fffffff
  int getMoneyAmount(int n) {
    vector<vector<int> > dp;
    for (int i = 0; i < n+1; i++) dp[i].resize(n+1, 0);
    for (int i = 1; i <= n; i++) dp[i][i] = 0;
    for (int i = 1; i <= n-1; i++) dp[i][i+1] = i;
    for (int i = 1; i <= n-2; i++) dp[i][i+2] = i+1;

    for (int len = 3; len <= n-1; len++) {
      for (int i = 1; i <= n-len; i++) {
        int min_val = inf;
        for (int j = i; j <= i+len; j++) {
          if (j == i) min_val = min(min_val, j+dp[j+1][i+len]);
          else if (j == i+len) min_val = min(min_val, dp[i][i+len-1]+j);
          else min_val = min(min_val, j+max(dp[i][j-1], dp[j+1][i+len]));
        dp[i][i+len] = min_val;
    return dp[1][n];
