Output: 4
Explanation: Rob house 1 (money = 1) and then rob house 3 (money = 3).
Total amount you can rob = 1 + 3 = 4.
Input: nums = [2,7,9,3,1]

120. Triangle

Given a triangle array, return the minimum path sum from top to bottom.

Input: triangle = [[2],[3,4],[6,5,7],[4,1,8,3]]
Output: 11
Explanation: The triangle looks like:
2
3 4
6 5 7
4 1 8 3
The minimum path sum from top to bottom is 2 + 3 + 5 + 1 = 11 (underlined above).
Input: triangle = [[-10]]
Output: -10
  • triangle[0].length == 1
  • triangle[i].length == triangle[i - 1].length + 1
