Medium Accuracy: 45.14% Submissions: 43412 Points: 4

Given weights and values of N items, we need to put these items in a knapsack of capacity W to get the maximum total value in the knapsack.
Note: Unlike 0/1 knapsack, you are allowed to break the item. 


Example 1:

N = 3, W = 50
values[] = {60,100,120}
weight[] = {10,20,30}
Explanation:Total maximum value of item
we can have is 240.00 from the given
capacity of sack. 

Example 2:

N = 2, W = 50
values[] = {60,100}
weight[] = {10,20}
Total maximum value of item
we can have is 160.00 from the given
capacity of sack.


Your Task :
Complete the function fractionalKnapsack() that receives maximum capacity , array of structure/class and size n and returns a double value representing the maximum value in knapsack.
Note: The details of structure/class is defined in the comments above the given function.

Expected Time Complexity : O(NlogN)
Expected Auxilliary Space: O(1)

1 <= N <= 105
1 <= W <= 105
