A sequence of integers from the set is given. The bytecomputer is a device that allows the following operation on the sequence: incrementing by for any . There is no limit on the range of integers the bytecomputer can store, i.e., each can (in principle) have arbitrarily small or large value.
Program the bytecomputer so that it transforms the input sequence into a non-decreasing sequence (i.e., such that ) with the minimum number of operations.
The first line of the standard input holds a single integer (), the number of elements in the (bytecomputer's) input sequence.
The second line contains integers () that are the successive elements of the (bytecomputer's) input sequence, separated by single spaces.
In tests worth 24% of the total points it holds that , and in tests worth 48% of the total points it holds that .
The first and only line of the standard output should give one integer, the minimum number of operations the bytecomputer has to perform to make its input sequence non-decreasing, of the single word BRAK (Polish for none) if obtaining such a sequence is impossible.
For the input data:
6 -1 1 0 -1 0 1
the correct result is:
Explanation of the example: with three operations, the bytecomputer can obtain the sequence .
