Minimum Path Sum Problem


Description

LeetCode Problem 64.

Given a m x n grid filled with non-negative numbers, find a path from top left to bottom right, which minimizes the sum of all numbers along its path.

Note: You can only move either down or right at any point in time.

Example 1:

1
2
3
Input: grid = [[1,3,1],[1,5,1],[4,2,1]]
Output: 7
Explanation: Because the path 1 → 3 → 1 → 1 → 1 minimizes the sum.

Example 2:

1
2
Input: grid = [[1,2,3],[4,5,6]]
Output: 12

Constraints:

  • m == grid.length
  • n == grid[i].length
  • 1 <= m, n <= 200
  • 0 <= grid[i][j] <= 100

                }
            }
        }
