In the movie "Blues Brothers", the orphanage where Elwood and Jack were
may be sold to the Board of Education if they do not pay 5000 dollars
in taxes at the Cook Country Assessor's Office in Chicago.
After playing a gig in the Palace Hotel ballroom to earn these 5000
they have to find a way to Chicago. However, this is not so easy as it
since they are chased by the Police, a country band and a group of
Moreover, it is 106 miles to Chicago, it is dark and they are wearing
As they are on a mission from God, you should help them find the safest
to Chicago. In this problem, the safest way is considered to be the
which maximises the probability that they are not caught.
The input file contains several test cases.
Each test case starts with two integers n and m (2 ≤ n ≤ 100
, 1 ≤ m ≤ n*(n-1)/2).
n is the number of intersections, m is the number of
streets to be considered.
The next m lines contain the description of the streets.
Each street is described by a line containing 3 integers a, b and p
(1 ≤ a, b ≤ n , a ≠ b, 1 ≤ p ≤ 100):
a and b are the two end points of the street
and p is the probability in percent that the Blues Brothers will manage
to use this street without being caught.
Each street can be used in both directions.
You may assume that there is at most one street between two end points.
The last test case is followed by a zero.
For each test case, calculate the probability of the safest path
intersection 1 (the Palace Hotel) to intersection n
Honorable Richard J. Daley Plaza in Chicago).
You can assume that there is at least one path between intersection
1 and n.
Print the probability as a percentage with exactly 6 digits after the decimal point.
The percentage value is considered correct if it differs by at most 10-6 from the judge output.
Adhere to the format shown below and print one line for each test case.
5 2 100
3 5 80
2 3 70
2 1 50
3 4 90
4 1 85
3 1 70
The safest path for the sample input is 1 -> 4 -> 3 -> 5
