RACETIME - Race Against Time

As another one of their crazy antics, the N (1 ≤ N ≤ 100,000) cows want Farmer John to race against the clock to answer some of their pressing questions.

The cows are lined up in a row from 1 to N, and each one is holding a sign representing a number, Ai (1 ≤ Ai ≤ 1,000,000,000). The cows need FJ to perform Q (1 ≤ Q ≤ 50,000) operations, which can be either of the following:

  • Modify cow i's number to X (1 ≤ X ≤ 1,000,000,000). This will be represented in the input as a line containing the letter M followed by the space-separated numbers i and X.
  • Count how many cows in the range [P, Q] (1 ≤ P ≤ Q ≤ N) have Ai ≤ X (0 ≤ X ≤ 1,000,000,000). This will be represented in the input as a line containing the letter C followed by the space-separated numbers P, Q, and X.

Of course, FJ would like your help.


The first line gives the integers N and Q, and the next N lines give the initial values of Ai. Finally, the next Q lines each contain a query of the form "M i X" or "C P Q X".


Print the answer to each 'C' query, one per line.


4 6
C 2 4 4
M 4 1
C 2 4 4
C 1 4 5
M 2 10
C 1 3 9


FJ has 4 cows, whose initial numbers are 3, 4, 1, and 7. The cows then give him 6 operations; the first asks him to count the how many of the last three cows have a number at most 4, the second asks him to change the fourth cow's number to 1, etc.

my merge sort Tree giving TLE what to do.....
time complexity- O( N*LogN^2 + Q*LogN^2)

Why my code with N*log2(N) not passing

hchauhan7816: 2020-04-29 15:29:21

AC in one go using sqrt decomposition. No issue faced for TLE ( I think there must be some implementation problem or the Time Constraints might have been updated).

Really nice problem.
Take note of queries that lie in the same block (when using sqrt decomp)

solved using Microsoft Powerpoint

bruteforce solution will pass the time limit
try to solve it sqrt segmentation or segment tree
happy coding

similar to GIVEAWAY

Holy F*** ! My sqrt decomposition code got TLE and N*Q brute forciiiiiie got AC . Hahhahaha!!!!

kshubham02: 2019-04-21 21:20:56

N*log^2(N) times out.
Brute force in N*Q passes.

very good problem
