Distributing Medals It's the medal distribution ceremony. 10^6 police officers, numbered from 1 to 10^6, are standing in a line. There are N (1<=N<=1000) iterations of medal distribution. In iteration i (0 < = i < N), count[i] ( 1 < = count[i] < = 100) medals are given to all officers from from[i] to to[i] ( 1 < = from[i] < = to[i] < = 10^6 )- saurabh.find September 04, 2014 in India
