UVa 562 – Dividing coins

Problem Link : https://uva.onlinejudge.org/index.php?option=com_onlinejudge&Itemid=8&category=24&page=show_problem&problem=503

Solution Idea:

In this problem given n coins where value of every coin is <=500. We have to divide this coins into two parts so that the difference between the sum of the values of coins  in each parts is minimum.

To do this at first wile taking input we sum up all the coins value. and we can see that the maximum sum can be  50000 and if we divide it into two parts then one part can have maximum of 25000 sum. So we take a dp array size greater than 25000 and run coin change to make values from coins. after that we have to check which largest value we can make from the coins which is less than or equal to sum/2. where sum is the summation of all coins value.

Let the largest value we can make is X. so our output is (sum-X)-X  or sum-2*x.
