# Knapsack problem/Continuous

Knapsack problem/Continuous
You are encouraged to solve this task according to the task description, using any language you may know.

A thief burgles a butcher's shop, where he can select from some items.

The thief knows the weights and prices of each items.   Because he has a knapsack with 15 kg maximal capacity, he wants to select the items such that he would have his profit maximized.   He may cut the items;   the item has a reduced price after cutting that is proportional to the original price by the ratio of masses.   That means:   half of an item has half the price of the original.

This is the item list in the butcher's shop:

Table of potential knapsack items
Item Weight (kg) Price (Value)
beef 3.8 36
pork 5.4 43
ham 3.6 90
greaves 2.4 45
flitch 4.0 30
brawn 2.5 56
welt 3.7 67
salami 3.0 95
sausage 5.9 98
Knapsack <=15 kg ?

Show which items the thief carries in his knapsack so that their total weight does not exceed 15 kg, and their total value is maximized.

The table of weights and prices are stored as strings to make them easier to edit. Two characters for the weight (with the decimal point dropped), two characters for the price, and then the name of the item. The total numbers of items (9) is specified by the first value on the stack.

When the store's inventory is kept in this way, the solution to the continuous knapsack problem (provided by solve), is straightforward. The thief should pack as much of the highest value items as are available until full capacity is reached, topping off with as much of the last item as the knapsack will hold. (If the store contains less than the thief's knapsack will hold, he'll take the store's entire inventory.) An outer constructor method is used to create instances of KPCSupply when only the item, weight and value are supplied. The isless method is provided for KPCSupply objects so that items are transparently sorted by their unit value. KPCSupply supports any real type for weight, value and uvalue (though this simple implementation does not support mixed types or promotion). This solution uses Rational numbers to avoid rounding errors until the results are printed. Type and Functions: using Printf struct KPCSupply{T<:Real} item::String weight::T value::T uvalue::T end function KPCSupply(item::AbstractString, weight::Real, value::Real) w, v = promote(weight, value) KPCSupply(item, w, v, v / w) end Base.show(io::IO, s::KPCSupply) = print(io, s.item, @sprintf " (%.2f kg, %.2f €, %.2f €/kg)" s.weight s.value s.uvalue) Base.isless(a::KPCSupply, b::KPCSupply) = a.uvalue < b.uvalue function solve(store::Vector{KPCSupply{T}}, capacity::Real) where T<:Real sack = similar(store, 0) # vector like store, but of length 0 kweight = zero(T) for s in sort(store, rev = true) if kweight + s.weight ≤ capacity kweight += s.weight push!(sack, s) else w = capacity - kweight v = w * s.uvalue push!(sack, KPCSupply(s.item, w, v, s.value)) break end end return sack end  Main: store = [KPCSupply("beef", 38//10, 36), KPCSupply("pork", 54//10, 43), KPCSupply("ham", 36//10, 90), KPCSupply("greaves", 24//10, 45), KPCSupply("flitch", 4//1, 30), KPCSupply("brawn", 25//10, 56), KPCSupply("welt", 37//10, 67), KPCSupply("salami", 3//1, 95), KPCSupply("sausage", 59//10, 98)] sack = solve(store, 15) println("The store contains:\n - ", join(store, "\n - ")) println("\nThe thief should take::\n - ", join(sack, "\n - ")) @printf("\nTotal value in the sack: %.2f €\n", sum(getfield.(sack, :value)))  Output: The store contains: - beef (3.80 kg, 36.00 €, 9.47 €/kg) - pork (5.40 kg, 43.00 €, 7.96 €/kg) - ham (3.60 kg, 90.00 €, 25.00 €/kg) - greaves (2.40 kg, 45.00 €, 18.75 €/kg) - flitch (4.00 kg, 30.00 €, 7.50 €/kg) - brawn (2.50 kg, 56.00 €, 22.40 €/kg) - welt (3.70 kg, 67.00 €, 18.11 €/kg) - salami (3.00 kg, 95.00 €, 31.67 €/kg) - sausage (5.90 kg, 98.00 €, 16.61 €/kg) The thief should take:: - salami (3.00 kg, 95.00 €, 31.67 €/kg) - ham (3.60 kg, 90.00 €, 25.00 €/kg) - brawn (2.50 kg, 56.00 €, 22.40 €/kg) - greaves (2.40 kg, 45.00 €, 18.75 €/kg) - welt (3.50 kg, 63.38 €, 67.00 €/kg) Total value in the sack: 349.38 € ## Kotlin // version 1.1.2 data class Item(val name: String, val weight: Double, val value: Double) val items = mutableListOf( Item("beef", 3.8, 36.0), Item("pork", 5.4, 43.0), Item("ham", 3.6, 90.0), Item("greaves", 2.4, 45.0), Item("flitch", 4.0, 30.0), Item("brawn", 2.5, 56.0), Item("welt", 3.7, 67.0), Item("salami", 3.0, 95.0), Item("sausage", 5.9, 98.0) ) const val MAX_WEIGHT = 15.0 fun main(args: Array<String>) { // sort items by value per unit weight in descending order items.sortByDescending { it.value / it.weight } println("Item Chosen Weight Value Percentage") println("----------- ------ ------ ----------") var w = MAX_WEIGHT var itemCount = 0 var sumValue = 0.0 for (item in items) { itemCount++ if (item.weight <= w) { sumValue += item.value print("${item.name.padEnd(11)}     ${"%3.1f".format(item.weight)}${"%5.2f".format(item.value)}")

## Mathematica/Wolfram Language

The problem is solved by sorting the original table by price to weight ratio, finding the accumlated weight, and the index of the item which exedes the carrying capacity (overN) The output is then all items prior to this one, along with that item corrected for it's excess weighter (overW)

Knapsack[shop_, capacity_] :=  Block[{sortedTable, overN, overW, output},
sortedTable = SortBy[{#1, #2, #3, #3/#2} & @@@ shop, -#[[4]] &];
overN = Position[Accumulate[sortedTable[[1 ;;, 2]]], a_ /; a > capacity, 1,1][[1, 1]];
overW = Accumulate[sortedTable[[1 ;;, 2]]][[overN]] - capacity;

output = Reverse@sortedTable[[Ordering[sortedTable[[1 ;;, 4]], -overN]]];
output[[-1, 2]] = output[[-1, 2]] - overW;
