# Building a New Neighborhood - Let's Get Started!

## How can we calculate the minimum cost of building a new neighborhood?

To calculate the minimum cost of building a new neighborhood, we need to consider the cost of each type of house to be built and the number of each type of house needed for the project.

## Calculating the Minimum Cost

The minimum cost of building a new neighborhood involves determining the lowest cost required to complete the project. This cost is influenced by factors such as:

- The cost of each type of house to be constructed (e.g. cost of a wood house, cost of a brick house, etc.)
- The quantity of each type of house to be constructed (e.g. 2, 3, or more of a particular type)

For example, when given input like [[1,2,3],[1,2,3],[3,3,1]] where the values represent the cost of materials, the output should be 4. This means selecting material-1 of cost 1 in the first house (row), material-2 of cost 2 in the second house (row), and material-3 of cost 1 in the third house (row), with a total cost of 1+2+1 = 4.

## Exploring the Construction Process

Building a new neighborhood is an exciting endeavor that requires careful planning and budgeting. By selecting the right materials and quantities for each house, we can achieve the minimum cost needed to bring the project to fruition.

It's important to assess the cost of various construction materials and determine the optimal combination to optimize the project's budget. By understanding how different factors impact the overall cost, we can create a vibrant neighborhood while staying within budget constraints.

Collaborating with architects, engineers, and construction professionals can streamline the building process and ensure that the neighborhood meets quality standards while remaining cost-effective. With smart planning and strategic decision-making, we can create a beautiful new neighborhood that enhances the community's livability.
