# Minimum number of days required to complete the work

Given N works numbered from 1 to N. Given two arrays, D1[] and D2[] of N elements each. Also, each work number W(i) is assigned days, D1[i] and D2[i] (*Such that, D2[i] < D1[i]*) either of which can be completed.

Also, it is mentioned that each work has to be completed according to the **non-decreasing date of the array D1[]**.

The task is to find the **minimum number of days** required to complete the work in non-decreasing order of days in D1[].

**Examples**:

Input :

N = 3

D1[] = {5, 3, 4}

D2[] = {2, 1, 2}Output :2Explanation:

3 works are to be completed. The first value on Line(i) is D1(i) and the second value is D2(i) where D2(i) < D1(i). The smart worker can finish the second work on Day 1 and then both third work and first work in Day 2, thus maintaining the non-decreasing order of D1[], [3 4 5].

Input :

N = 6

D1[] = {3, 3, 4, 4, 5, 5}

D2[] = {1, 2, 1, 2, 4, 4}Output :4

### Recommended: Please try your approach on __{IDE}__ first, before moving on to the solution.

__{IDE}__**Approach:** The solution is greedy. The work(i) can be sorted by increasing D1[i], breaking the ties by increasing D2[i]. If we consider the works in this order, we can try to finish the works as early as possible. First of all complete the first work on D2[1]. Move to the second work. If we can complete it on day D2[2] such that (D2[1]<=D2[2]), do it. Otherwise, do the work on day D[2]. Repeat the process until we complete the N-th work, keeping the day of the latest work.

Below is the implementation of the above approach.
