Dilpreet wants to paint his dog**- **Buzo's home that has **n** boards with different lengths[A1, A2,..., An]. He hired **k** painters for this work and each painter takes **1 unit time to paint 1 unit of the board.**The problem is to find the minimum time to get this job done under the constraints that any painter will only paint continuous sections of boards, say board {2, 3, 4} or only board {1} or nothing but not board {2, 4, 5}.

**Input:**

The first line consists of a single integer **T**, the number of test cases. For each test case, the first line contains an integer **k **denoting the number of painters and integer **n **denoting the number of boards. Next line contains n- space separated integers denoting the size of boards.

**Output:**

For each test case, the output is an integer displaying the minimum time for painting that house.

**Constraints:**

1<=T<=100

1<=k<=30

1<=n<=50

1<=A[i]<=500

**Example:
Input:**

2

2 4

10 10 10 10

2 4

10 20 30 40

20

60

**Explanation:
1.** Here we can divide the boards into 2 equal sized partitions, so each painter gets 20 units of the board and the total time taken is 20.
