A. Kattis problems
For this assignment, we will solve the following problem on kattis:
1. Disastrous Downtime:
B. Separate problem
Problem: Vegetable Baskets
ProblemID: vbasket
Sami is the boss of a vegetables company (Sami Vegetables). He wants to introduce a
new product – vegetable baskets. They will contain all possible combinations of
vegetables to satisfy different customer needs, but at most one piece of each type of
vegetables. He doesn’t want to have small vegetable baskets, so all baskets must contain
at least 200 grams of vegetables.
You have tolerated his ideas before, but you can’t put up with this one. You realized that
the company might end up with 2
𝑁 − 1 different baskets, where 𝑁 is the number of types
of vegetables the company sells. You know that Sami will not understand this argument,
so you are going to convince him in a different way. You want to tell him the total weight
of vegetables of all possible baskets, to clarify that he will need a lot of trucks just to carry
For simplicity, you assume that all vegetables of the same kind weigh the same. You also
know that all vegetables weigh at least 50 grams.
The first line of input contains an integer 𝑁, 1 ≤ 𝑁 ≤ 40. The second line
contains 𝑁 integers – weights of available vegetables types in grams. All weights are
integers between 50 and 1000.
Output one line with one integer – the total weight of all vegetables in the baskets that
have at least 200 grams of vegetables.
