Enjoy and leave a thanks for my man Bar-B-Q here. ^_^

The task is simple. Given n, k you gotta print

where ω(j) is the number of distinct prime factors of j.

Constraints: 1 ≤ k ≤ 10,  1 ≤ n ≤ 1011.

TL is fuckin' big, 15 seconds. Wut do?

Problem: 351E - Jeff and Permutation

Abridged statement: given n ≤ 2000 integers, we can multiply some of them by  - 1. Goal is to minimize number of inversions (pairs (i, j) such that i < j and ai > aj). Print the minimum number of inversions.

Solution: 30244905

This solution replaces all numbers with its absolute value first. Then for each index i this solution adds min(L, R) to answer where L =  number of smaller elements to left, R =  number of smaller elements to right. Why does it work?

Why don't the IOI committee publish shortlisted problems and solutions like IMO does? It would be a great source of practice and countries could use the problems in their selection tests.
