W08/CS5592 Suggested Solutions to Homework Two Design and Analysis of Algorithms Due: Monday, Feb. 18, 2008, in class There are four problems 1 The number of cars produced by Toyota company in the past n years are stored in an array A[1], A[2], …, A[ n ]. We wish to find if there is a period of consecutive years such that the total number of cars produced in this period is exactly equal to M. That is, we wish to find if there exist i and j , 1 i j n , such that = j i k k A ] [ = M. Please design an O( n ) time greedy algorithm to solve this problem. You need to give a pseudo code. 2 There are n activities, a 1 , a 2 , …, a n , that need to use a common resource. Activity i (1 i n ) needs occupy the resource for non-interrupted t i time. There is no deadline for each activity, but there is a penalty p i associated with the starting time of a i . Suppose activity a i starts to use the resource at time s i , its penalty is proportional to s i . Please design an efficient algorithm that schedules these activities starting from

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
