# [JAVA] A story about a super beginner participating in the AtCoder contest for the first time (AtCoder Beginner Contest 140)

I will describe the feeling of participating in AtCoder as a practice and a memorandum.

#### environment

· Mac OS X 10.13.6 ・ Eclipse -Language used: Java8 (OpenJDK 1.8.0)

# Trigger

It's been a month since I first learned Java at a vocational school. I was recommended to AOJ at the level where I could finally use the for statement. I had a good time solving AOJ's problem in Lunlun for about a week, but yesterday, I couldn't access it from the morning (crying) But I'm taking a break and want to solve some problems!

So I decided to go to the AtCoder page, which I had avoided saying "the contest is kind of scary".

AtCoder Beginner Contest 140 It will be held just today (9/7)! !! I pressed the join button with momentum. I participated in the following contests AtCoder Beginner Contest 140

# result

• I wasn't scared at all! Rather, it's fun to see the commentary after it's over!

# I was addicted to the B problem

Question B, 70 minutes at the end of the correct answer ... I couldn't figure out the C problem.

#### ■ Causes of addiction to problem B

-Compile error with double brackets (()) in the if statement (No error in Eclipse) -If an element is assigned while turning with a for statement, the number of search characters in the array will be exceeded (ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException error).

#### ■ Problem and answer of B problem

##### Problem Problem B: Buffet
``````import java.util.Scanner;

public class Main {
public static void main(String[] args) {
Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
int N = sc.nextInt();
int[] A = new int[21];
int[] B = new int[21];
int[] C = new int[21];
int i = 0;
int cs = 0;
int csSum = 0;

for( i = 0; i < N ; i++) { //Input Store the input of the second line in the A array
A[i] = sc.nextInt();
}

for( i = 0; i < N; i++) { //Input The input of the third line is stored in the B array
B[i] = sc.nextInt();
}

for( i = 0; i < N-1; i++) { //Input Store the input of the 4th line in the C array
C[i] = sc.nextInt();
}

for(i = 1; i <= N; i++) { //Repeat as many times as you ate the food
int j = A[i-1];  //I didn't want to put the array in the search letter, so I assigned it as a painstaking measure
if(A[i] == j+1) {  //If the dish before the dish you are currently eating is i+If the first
cs = B[j-1] + C[j-1];  //B satisfaction+C satisfaction
}else {  //If i+If not the first
cs = B[j-1];
}
csSum += cs;  //Add to the total satisfaction obtained
}
System.out.println(csSum);
sc.close();
}
}

# Summary

-See All Submissions and study the problems you have solved by looking at the answers of other people. ――I realized once again that the number of questions I had solved was small, and I will do more and more exercises. ――It's about time to study algorithms. (I only know bubble sort)
