Given a n-ary tree having nodes with a particular weight, our task is to find out the maximum sum of the minimum difference of divisors of each node from root to leaf.
Input:18 / \ 7 15 / \ \ 4 12 2 / 9
The maximum sum is along the path 18 -> 7 -> 12 -> 9
Minimum difference between divisors of 18 = 6 – 3 = 3
Minimum difference between divisors of 7 = 7 – 1 = 6
Minimum difference between divisors of 12 = 4 – 3 = 1
Minimum difference between divisors of 9 = 3 – 3 = 0
20 / \ 13 14 / \ \ 10 8 26 / 25
The maximum sum is along the path 20 -> 14 -> 26
To solve the problem mentioned above we can store the minimum difference between the divisors at each node in an array using the depth first traversal. Now, the task is to find out the minimum difference between the divisors.
- We can observe that for any number N, the smallest divisor x in the range [√N, N] will have the least difference between x and N/x.
- At each node, calculate the minimum difference between divisors, and finally start filling the array using the results of the children and calculate the maximum sum possible.
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
