You are given a bag of size W kg and you are provided costs of packets different weights of oranges in array cost[] where **cost[i]** is basically cost of **‘i’** kg packet of oranges. Where cost[i] = -1 means that **‘i’** kg packet of orange is unavailable

Find the minimum total cost to buy exactly W kg oranges and if it is not possible to buy exactly W kg oranges then print -1. It may be assumed that there is infinite supply of all available packet types.

** Note :** array starts from index 1.

Examples:

Input : W = 5, cost[] = {-1, -1, 4, 5, -1} Output : -1 Packets of size 1, 2 and 5 kg are unavailable because there cost if -1 and cost of 3 kg packet is 4 Rs and of 4 kg is 5 Rs. Here we have only weights 3 and 4 so by using these two we can not make exactly W kg weight, therefore answer is -1. Input : W = 5, cost[] = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} Output : 5 Costs of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 kg packets are 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 Rs respectively. We choose packet of 5kg having cost 5 for minimum cost to get 5Kg oranges.

This problem is can be reduced to 0-1 Knapsack Problem. So in cost array, we first ignore those packets which are not available i.e; cost is -1 and then traverse the cost array and create two array val[] for storing cost of **‘i’** kg packet of orange and wt[] for storing weight of corresponding packet. Suppose cost[i] = 50 so weight of packet will be i and cost will be 50.

**Algorithm :**

- Create matrix min_cost[n+1][W+1], where n is number of distinct weighted packets of orange and W is maximum capacity of bag.
- Initialize 0th row with INF (infinity) and 0th Column with 0.
- Now fill the matrix
- if wt[i-1] > j then min_cost[i][j] = min_cost[i-1][j] ;
- if wt[i-1] >= j then min_cost[i][j] = min(min_cost[i-1][j], val[i-1] + min_cost[i][j-wt[i-1]]);

- If min_cost[n][W]==INF then output will be -1 because this means that we cant not make make weight W by using these weights else output will be
**min_cost[n][W]**.
