### Problem Statement :

You are given two strings digits and lower both representing decimal numbers. Given that you can rearrange digits in any order, return the smallest number that's larger than lower. You can assume there is a solution. Constraints 1 ≤ n ≤ 100,000 where n is the length of digits 1 ≤ m ≤ 100,000 where m is the length of lower Example 1 Input digits = "852" lower = "100" Output "258" Example 2 Input digits = "090" lower = "0" Output "9" Explanation We can have "009".

### Solution :

` ````
Solution in C++ :
string solve(string digits, string lower) {
lower = string(digits.size() - lower.size(), '0') + lower;
int c[128] = {0};
for (auto d : digits) ++c[d];
int n = digits.size();
string ret(n, '.');
int m = 0;
while (m < n && c[lower[m]] > 0) --c[lower[m]], ret[m] = lower[m], ++m;
auto make = [&](int x) {
if (x >= lower.size()) return false;
for (int d = lower[x] + 1; d <= '9'; ++d)
if (c[d] > 0) {
ret[x++] = d;
--c[d];
for (char y = '0'; y <= '9'; ++y)
while (c[y]-- > 0) ret[x++] = y;
return true;
}
return false;
};
while (m >= 0 && !make(m)) --m, ++c[lower[m]];
int b = 0;
while (b < ret.size() - 1 && ret[b] == '0') ++b;
return ret.substr(b);

## Subsequence Weighting

A subsequence of a sequence is a sequence which is obtained by deleting zero or more elements from the sequence. You are given a sequence A in which every element is a pair of integers i.e A = [(a1, w1), (a2, w2),..., (aN, wN)]. For a subseqence B = [(b1, v1), (b2, v2), ...., (bM, vM)] of the given sequence : We call it increasing if for every i (1 <= i < M ) , bi < bi+1. Weight(B) =
