Total number of tyres in dealerships2 is (4 x 4) + (0 x 2) = 16
Total number of tyres in dealerships3 is (1 x 4) + (2 x 2) = 8

Solution:

import java.util.*;
public class Solution
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
   {
        Scanner sc=new Scanner(System.in);
        int dealership=sc.nextInt();
        while(dealership-->0)
       {
            int cars=sc.nextInt();
            int bikes=sc.nextInt();
            System.out.println(cars*4+bikes*2);           
       }
   }
}

4. Problem Statement
Gary is an avid hiker. He tracks his hikes meticulously, paying close attention to small details like topography. During his last hike, he took exactly n steps. For every step he took, he noted if it was an uphill or a downhill step. Gary’s hikes start and end at sea level. We define the following terms:

  • A mountain is a non-empty sequence of consecutive steps above sea level, starting with a step up from sea level and ending with a step down to sea level.
  • A valley is a non-empty sequence of consecutive steps below sea level, starting with a step down from sea level and ending with a step up to sea level.
    Given Gary’s sequence of up and down steps during his last hike, find and print the number of valleys he walked through.
    Input Format
    The first line contains an integer, , denoting the number of steps in Gary’s hike.
    The second line contains a single string of characters. Each character belongs to {U, D} (where U indicates a step up and D indicates a step down), and the i(th) cin the string describes Gary’s i(th) step during the hike.

Constraints

  • 2 <= N <= 106

Output Format
Print a single integer denoting the number of valleys Gary walked through during his hike.

Sample Input
8
UDDDUDUU

Sample Output
1

Explanation
If we represent as sea level, a step up as / , and a step down as \ , Gary’s hike can be drawn as:
/\ _
\ /
\/\/

It’s clear that there is only one valley there, so we print on a new line.
Solution:

import java.util.*;
class Main 
{
    public static int countingValley(int n, String path)
    {
        int level=0,valley=0;
        for(int i=0;i<n;i++)
        {
            if(path.charAt(i)=='U')
                level++;
            else if(path.charAt(i)=='D')
            {
                if(level==1)
                    valley++;
                level--;
            }
        }
        return valley;
    }
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        Scanner sc=new Scanner(System.in);
        int n=sc.nextInt();
        String str=sc.next();
        int result=countingValley(n,str);
        System.out.println(result);
    }
}

5. Write a C Program to check if two given matrices are identical.

Solution:

#include<bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
#define N 4
// This function returns 1 if A[][] and B[][] are identical
// otherwise returns 0
int areSame (int A[][N], int B[][N])
{
  int i, j;
  for (i = 0; i < N; i++)
    for (j = 0; j < N; j++)
      if (A[i][j] != B[i][j])
    return 0;
  return 1;
}
int main ()
{
  int A[N][N] = { {1, 1, 1, 1},
  {2, 2, 2, 2},
  {3, 3, 3, 3},
  {4, 4, 4, 4}
  };
  int B[N][N] = { {1, 1, 1, 1},
  {2, 2, 2, 2},
  {3, 3, 3, 3},
  {4, 4, 4, 4}
  };
  if (areSame (A, B))
    cout<<"Matrices are identical";
  else
    cout<<"Matrices are not identical";
  return 0;
}

6. A Pythagorean triplet is a set of three integers a, b and c such that a2 + b2 = c2. Given a limit, generate all Pythagorean Triples with values smaller than the given limit.

Input : limit = 20

Output : 3 4 5
8 6 10
5 12 13
15 8 17
12 16 20

A Simple Solution is to generate these triplets smaller than the given limit using three nested loops. For every triplet, check if the Pythagorean condition is true, if true, then print the triplet. Time complexity of this solution is O(limit3) where ‘limit’ is given limit.

An Efficient Solution can print all triplets in O(k) time where k is the number of triplets printed. The idea is to use square sum relation of Pythagorean triplet, i.e., addition of squares of a and b is equal to square of c, we can write these number in terms of m and n such that,
a = m2 – n2
b = 2 m n
c = m2 + n2
because,
a2 = m4 + n4 – 2 m2 n2
b2 = 4 m2 n2
c2 = m4 + n4 + 2 m2 n2

We can see that a2 + b2 = c2, so instead of iterating for a, b and c we can iterate for m and n and can generate these triplets

Solution:

import java.util.*;
class Main 
{
    public static void pythagoreanTriplets(int limit)
    {
        int a,b,c=0;
        int m=2;
        while(c<limit)
        {
            for(int n=1;n<m;++n)
            {
                a=m*m-n*n;
                b=2*m*n;
                c=m*m+n*n;
                if(c>limit)
                    break;
                System.out.println(a+" "+b+" "+c);
            }
            m++;
        }
    }
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        int limit=20;
        pythagoreanTriplets(limit);
    }
}

7. Problem Statement – Aashay loves to go to WONDERLA , an amusement park. They are offering students who can code well with some discount. Our task is to reduce the cost of the ticket as low as possible.
The cost of tickets can be removed by removing the digits from the price given. They will give some k turns to remove the digits from the price of the ticket. Your task is to help Aashay in coding a program that can help him to reduce the cost of a ticket by removing the digits from its price and getting the maximum possible discount.
Note – You cannot make the cost of a ticket zero. For eg -: If the cost of a ticket is 100, and you have 2 turns to reduce the price, the final price will be 1 and not zero.

Constraints:

  • 1 <= number of tickets <= 105
  • 1 <= K <= number of tickets

Input Format for Custom Testing:

  • The first line contains a string,Tickets, denoting the given cost of each ticket.
  • The next line contains an integer, K, denoting the number of tickets that is to be removed.

Sample Cases:

Sample Input 1
203
3

Sample Output 1
0

Solution:

#include<bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
int smallestNumber (string num, int k)
{
    if(num.length()<=k)
        return 0;
   
    unordered_map<char,int> pos;
    for(int i=0;i < num.length();i++)
    { 
       pos[num[i]]=i;}
 
    string temp=num;
    
    sort(num.begin(),num.end());
    
    string ans=num.substr(0,num.length()-k);
    vector < int > v;
    
    for(int i=0;i < ans.length();i++)
    v.push_back(pos[ans[i]]);
 
    sort(v.begin(),v.end());
    string ret;
    for(int i=0;i < v.size();i++) 
     { 
       ret+=temp[v[i]];
     } 
    int final=stoi(ret); 
    return final; 
} 
int main() 
  { 
    string s; cin >> s;
    int k;
    cin >> k;
    int ans;
    cout << smallestNumber(s,k)%(int)(pow(10,9)+7);
    return 0;
}

8. Problem Statement – In an airport , the Airport authority decides to charge some minimum amount to the passengers who are carrying luggage with them. They set a threshold weight value, say T, if the luggage exceeds the weight threshold you should pay double the base amount. If it is less than or equal to the threshold then you have to pay $1.
Returns: The function must return an INTEGER denoting the required amount to be paid.

Constraints:

  • 1 <= N <= 105
  • 1 <= weights[i] <= 105
  • 1 <= T <= 105

Input Format for Custom Testing:

  • The first line contains an integer, N, denoting the number of luggages.
  • Each line i of the N subsequent lines (where 0 <= i < n) contains an integer describing weight of ith luggage.
  • The next line contains an integer, T, denoting the threshold weight of the boundary wall.

Sample Cases:

Sample Input 1
4
1
2
3
4
3

Sample Output 1
5

Explanation:
Here all weights are less than the threshold weight except the luggage with weight 4 (at index 3) so all pays base fare and it pays double fare.

Solution:

#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;

long int weightMachine(long int N,long int weights[],long int T)
{
    long int amount=0,i;
    for(i=0;i<N;i++) { amount++; if(weights[i]>T)
        {
            amount++;
        }
    }
    return amount;
}
int main()
{
    long int N,i,T;
    cin>>N;
    
    long int weights[N];
    for(i=0;i<N;i++) { cin>>weights[i];
    }
    cin>>T;
    cout<<weightMachine(N,weights,T);

    return 0;
}
