There is a row of
n houses, where each house can be painted one of three colors: red, blue, or green. The cost of painting each house with a certain color is different. You have to paint all the houses such that no two adjacent houses have the same color.
The cost of painting each house with a certain color is represented by an
n x 3 cost matrix
- For example,
costsis the cost of painting house
0with the color red;
costsis the cost of painting house 1 with color green, and so on...
Return the minimum cost to paint all houses.
Input: costs = [[17,2,17],[16,16,5],[14,3,19]] Output: 10 Explanation: Paint house 0 into blue, paint house 1 into green, paint house 2 into blue. Minimum cost: 2 + 5 + 3 = 10.
Input: costs = [[7,6,2]] Output: 2
costs.length == n
costs[i].length == 3
1 <= n <= 100
1 <= costs[i][j] <= 20
