Best Time to Buy and Sell Stock I
Say you have an array for which the ith element is the price of a given stock on day i.

If you were only permitted to complete at most one transaction (i.e., buy one and sell one share of the stock), design an algorithm to find the maximum profit.

Note that you cannot sell a stock before you buy one.

class Solution:
def maxProfit(self, prices: List[int]) -> int:

for price in prices:
sell = max(sell, buy + price)

return sell

Best Time to Buy and Sell Stock II
Say you have an array for which the ith element is the price of a given stock on day i.

Design an algorithm to find the maximum profit. You may complete as many transactions as you like (i.e., buy one and sell one share of the stock multiple times).

Note that you may not engage in multiple transactions at the same time (i.e., you must sell the stock before you buy again).

class Solution:
def maxProfit(self, prices: List[int]) -> int:

for price in prices:

it tmp > 0:
profit += tmp

return profit

Best Time to Buy and Sell Stock III
Say you have an array for which the ith element is the price of a given stock on day i.

Design an algorithm to find the maximum profit. You may complete at most two transactions.

Note that you may not engage in multiple transactions at the same time (i.e., you must sell the stock before you buy again).

class Solution:
def maxProfit(self, prices: List[int]) -> int:

for price in prices:
sell_1 = max(sell_1, buy_1 + price)

sell_2 = max(sell_2, buy_2 + price)

return sell_2

Best Time to Buy and Sell Stock IV
Say you have an array for which the i-th element is the price of a given stock on day i.

Design an algorithm to find the maximum profit. You may complete at most k transactions.

Note that you may not engage in multiple transactions at the same time (ie, you must sell the stock before you buy again).

class Solution:
def maxProfit(self, k: int, prices: List[int]) -> int:
if k > len(prices) >> 1:
return sum(prices[i+1] - prices[i] for i in range(len(prices) - 1) if prices[i+1] > prices[i])

cash, asset = [-0x7777777] * (k + 1), [0] * (k + 1)

for price in prices:
for i in range(1, k+1):
cash[i] = max(cash[i], sell[i-1] - price)
asset[i] = max(asset[i], cash[i] + price)

return asset[k]

Best Time to Buy and Sell Stock with Cooldown

Say you have an array for which the ith element is the price of a given stock on day i.

Design an algorithm to find the maximum profit. You may complete as many transactions as you like (ie, buy one and sell one share of the stock multiple times) with the following restrictions:

• You may not engage in multiple transactions at the same time (ie, you must sell the stock before you buy again).
• After you sell your stock, you cannot buy stock on the next day. (ie, cooldown 1 day)
class Solution:
def maxProfit(self, prices: List[int]) -> int:
if not prices:
return 0

for price in prices:
prev_sell = sell
sell = max(prev_sell, prev_buy + price)

return sell

Best Time to Buy and Sell Stock with Transaction Fee
You are given an array of integers prices, for which the i-th element is the price of a given stock on day i; and a non-negative integer fee representing a transaction fee.

You may complete as many transactions as you like, but you need to pay the transaction fee for each transaction. You may not buy more than 1 share of a stock at a time (ie. you must sell the stock share before you buy again.)

Return the maximum profit you can make.

class Solution:
def maxProfit(self, prices: List[int], fee: int) -> int:
