Alice gives Bob a board composed of wooden squares and asks him to find the minimum cost of breaking the board back down into its individual squares. To break the board down, Bob must make cuts along its horizontal and vertical lines. To reduce the board to squares, Bob makes horizontal and vertical cuts across the entire board. Each cut has a given cost, or for each cut along a row or column across one board, so the cost of a cut must be multiplied by the number of segments it crosses. Th

Given a string, A, we define some operations on the string as follows: a. denotes the string obtained by reversing string . Example: b. denotes any string that's a permutation of string . Example: c. denotes any string that's obtained by interspersing the two strings & , maintaining the order of characters in both. For example, & , one possible result of could be , another could be , another could be and so on. Given a string such that for some string , find the lexico

Goodland is a country with a number of evenly spaced cities along a line. The distance between adjacent cities is unit. There is an energy infrastructure project planning meeting, and the government needs to know the fewest number of power plants needed to provide electricity to the entire list of cities. Determine that number. If it cannot be done, return -1. You are given a list of city data. Cities that may contain a power plant have been labeled . Others not suitable for building a plant
