i started to thinking about segment tree to solve this problem.

LightOj -1089

But after i noticed the range [0, 10^8], i just stucked there and couldn't managed how to solve it. please help ... thnx in advance :) :)

In this case, the ranges become: [1, 5], [3, 6], and the query points become: 2, 4, 7. For "both problems", the answers are 1, 2, 0.P.S. note that (once you solved the "reduction" part) you can solve this problem also by using a binary indexed tree (with a trick I explained here) which can be easier than a range tree.

How you reduce this one -> [1, 60 000 000], [40 000 000, 90 000 000] and these query points: 1 000 000, 50 000 000, 100 000 000 to this one [1, 5], [3, 6], and the query points become: 2, 4, 7 Both are quite different. isn't it?
