Solution Idea:

This is a classical knapsack problem. But in this problem we have to print the maximum profit as well as the detailed solution that is the maximum solution is obtained from which objects. Here the cost/weight is given by two equations like this-

• The descent time is tdi = w ∗ d[i] , where w is an integer constant.

• The ascent time is tai = 2w ∗ d[i] , where w is an integer constant.

So we can say that total cost/time need to get this treasure =  descent time+ascent time . which is w*d[i] + 2*w*d[i]=3*w*d[i].

Now we have to run a knapsack and we have to mark the objects which give me maximum profit. Now we have an array called path[][] which is initially set as -1 and it will mark the optimal objects. In knapsack function we have to variable p and q . where –

p= profit for taking current object

q=profit without current object

So if p>q then we will mark path[idx][air] = 1 else path[idx][air] = 2.

Now we have another function named path_print(idx, air) for getting the correct route of solution. In this function-

  • If path[idx][air] = 1 Then we will take the current objects and jump to  (idx+1, air+ 3*w*d[idx]) state.
  • If path[idx][air] = 2 then we will skip the current objects and jump to  (idx+1,air) state.
  • If path[idx][air] = -1 then we will stop because we already take the optimal objects.
