Given a square piece and a total number of cuts available n, Find out the maximum number of rectangular or square pieces of equal size that can be obtained with n cuts. The allowed cuts are horizontal and vertical cut.
Note: Stacking and folding is not allowed.
Input : n = 1 Output : 2 Explanation : Input : n = 2 Output : 4 Explanation : Input : n = 3 Output : 6 Explanation :
Given is n which is the number of allowed cuts. As it is required to maximize number of pieces after n cuts, So number of horizontal cuts will be equal to number of vertical cuts. This can be prove using differentiation. So number of horizontal cut will be n/2. and vertical cuts will be n-n/2.
So number of pieces = (horizontal cut + 1) * (vertical cut + 1).
Max number of pieces for n = 3 is 6
