I am trying to solve manhattan centre from cs academy. I am thinking to apply binary search on answer for x between 1 and 100000000. According to me the graph of the function will be a parabola.So what I am doing is I am calculating three values one at mid,mid+1 and mid-1 and checking if I am on the left side of the parabola low=mid+1 else if I am on the right side of the parabola high=mid-1. Else if I find the min point then it is the answer.But the solution is not working in the way that I wanted it to be can anyone tell me where I am going wrong.Also I saw some of the submissions where people applied ternary search and got the correct answer. As far as I know all the problems solved with ternary search can also be solved with binary search also.Here is the link to my solution. SOLUTION. Sorry for my poor english.

Problem Can anybody help me on how to figure out the dp behind this problem. I have already written a recursive solution for this problem. Also can anybody help me how to see after writing the recursive code that what are the states of the dp.I got too much difficulty in determining the states of a dp solution.
