### 11834 - Elevator

Posted:

**Sun Sep 19, 2010 11:39 pm**Hi all,

i was trying to solve this problem "Elevator" from the Brazilian National Contest

http://uva.onlinejudge.org/index.php?op ... oblem=2934

my approach is to get the minimum diagonal of a rectangle to enclose the 2 circles, and if this diagonal is <= the diagonal of the elevator, then i print 'S', else i print 'N'. however this approach fails in the fourth sample test case and i can't think of any other approach. i also don't see how we can pack the 2 circles in the fourth test case :S
thanks in advance
