Problem 18

Problem: 

By starting at the top of the triangle below and moving to adjacent numbers on the row below, the maximum total from top to bottom is 23.

3
7 4
2 4 6
8 5 9 3

That is, 3 + 7 + 4 + 9 = 23.

Find the maximum total from top to bottom of the triangle below:

75
95 64
17 47 82
18 35 87 10
20 04 82 47 65
19 01 23 75 03 34
88 02 77 73 07 63 67
99 65 04 28 06 16 70 92
41 41 26 56 83 40 80 70 33
41 48 72 33 47 32 37 16 94 29
53 71 44 65 25 43 91 52 97 51 14
70 11 33 28 77 73 17 78 39 68 17 57
91 71 52 38 17 14 91 43 58 50 27 29 48
63 66 04 68 89 53 67 30 73 16 69 87 40 31
04 62 98 27 23 09 70 98 73 93 38 53 60 04 23


My Solution:


T = [[75], 
[95, 64], 
[17, 47, 82], 
[18, 35, 87, 10], 
[20, 4, 82, 47, 65],
[19, 1, 23, 75, 3, 34], 
[88, 2, 77, 73, 7, 63, 67],
[99,65, 4, 28, 6, 16, 70, 92],
[41, 41, 26, 56, 83, 40, 80, 70, 33],
[41, 48, 72, 33, 47, 32, 37, 16, 94, 29],
[53, 71, 44, 65, 25, 43, 91, 52, 97, 51, 14],
[70, 11, 33, 28, 77, 73, 17, 78, 39, 68, 17, 57],
[91, 71, 52, 38, 17, 14, 91, 43, 58, 50, 27, 29, 48],
[63, 66, 4, 68, 89, 53, 67, 30, 73, 16, 69, 87, 40, 31],
[4, 62, 98, 27, 23, 9, 70, 98, 73, 93, 38, 53, 60, 4, 23]]

for j in range(0,len(T)):
    row_length = len(T)-j-1
    R = T[0:row_length]
    last_row = []
    for i in range(0, row_length):
        last_row.append(max(T[row_length-1][i]+T[row_length][i],T[row_length-1][i]+T[row_length][i+1]))
    R[row_length-1] = last_row
    T=R
print(T[0])
