Hello everybody!

My problem is this:

I have a unit and lot of parts. All parts have a price. These parts create a unit, but lot of way can be exist to create a unit. For example:

The unit is 1024, and the parts are:

256 10

256 20

256 30

256 40

1024 98

1024 513

So, I can make a unit if I will add 256+256+256+256, and I have to pay for that 100. Or I will chose only 1024 and I have to pay for that 98. 98 is smaller than 100, so this will be an optimal solution.

Which algorithm does it solve this problem optimal, if the prices are incremental ordered and the units are ordered too, like in the example.

Be on the safe side, I show you an another example.

The unit is 256, and the parts are:

16 1

16 1

16 3

16 4

64 1

64 1

64 2

256 14

The optimal solution is 16+16+16+16+64+64+64, because 1+1+3+4+1+1+2=13, and 256 is 14.

Thank you!
