In this HackerRank Robot problem solution, You have two arrays of integers, V = {V1, V2,..., Vn} and P = {P1, P2,...., Pn}, where both have N number of elements. What is the maximum possible value of score that we can get in the end, if we call Go(1,0)?. Note that the function should never invoke the KillTheWorld function. And random(1,2) generates a random integer from set [1, 2]. It is guaranteed there will be a solution that won't kill the world.
