I am stuck on problem number 4 for ps8. I am storing the entire input to the dpadvisorhelper function as a tuple (with the list elements converted to a tuple) in a global dictionary as keys and the 2 returned elements as corresponding data values for memoization. But its not working. Any suggestions?

    When you say, "its not working", do you get an error message or does it not output anything? Try posting your code to pastebin.

    well I tried checking if the dictionary was being used but at every function call for the recursive function dpadvisorhelper, the function never uses any of the global dictionary elements and hence dynamic programming isnt implemented.
