No, I don't understand what your problem is.
You say there are no values but then you give 4 values (1, 2, 2, and 3),
and then you *solve* the Knapsack problem like this:
1, 2, 3 #(X0, X1, X3)
That looks like a fine solution to me.
Questions:
* Exactly *what* is the problem. If you tell us *carefully* what the
problem is, we may try to solve it.
* This is a Python list. Does your problem have anything to do with
Python?
* Is this a homework problem? We generally don't solve homework
problems here (since you don't learn anything that way), but we are
certainly happy to help you learn.
