Solution Summary

The best solution for the problem "Best Time to Buy and Sell Stock with Transaction" involves using dynamic programming. It requires keeping track of the minimum stock price and the maximum profit at each day. By iterating through the stock prices, we can update the minimum price and calculate the maximum profit by comparing it with the current price minus the minimum price. This approach allows us to find the maximum profit that can be obtained by buying and selling the stock with at most one transaction. It has a time complexity of O(n) and a space complexity of O(1), making it an efficient solution.
