DONOTHIN - Doing Nothing

no tags 

Original statement in spanish at

A young couple uses to make their time as productive as possible. This activity is quite stressful, so they decided to "waste" some time watching their favorite TV series.

The series has N seasons, and each season has a possibly different number of chapters according to its success, actors availability, production time and other external factors. Each chapter has a duration of exactly M minutes.

To keep up with the plot, before watching each new season, they watch, without any rest, all the chapters of all the previous seasons. This has just made them concern about how much time they will be spending with this hobby, which should keep them calm. They need your help so they don't get back to the stressful situation they had.


The input contains several test cases. Each test case is described in two lines. The first line has two integers N and M representing respectively how many seasons the series has and the duration in minutes of each chapter (1 <= N <= 105, 1 <= M <= 106). The next line has N integers C_i representing how many chapters each season has sorted chronologically. (1 <= C_i <= 100 for 1 <= i <= N). The last line of the input contains the number -1 twice and should not be processed as a test case.


For each test case output a single line with an integer representing the number of minutes the couple spends in watching the whole series.

silly qn but listen
if they viewed first season and took rest the if they have to start with the second season then they have to watch both first and second code it like
sum+=a[i]; all i's till n;
output ans*m and use long long int for var's and for array use int a[10000]; to avoid sigesev

what do they mean by without any rest? what is this time they take for rest. by my understanding they watch a season, then they watch all the seasons before it and then they start the next.
