With reference to the problem, http://codeforces.com/contest/721/problem/C

http://codeforces.com/contest/721/submission/21096367 -> This submission with memset giving value of 1e9+7 to 2D array gives WA on test10

I was submitting the solution for Round #362 Div2 Problem E :

http://codeforces.com/contest/697/problem/E

I got WA on Test#4 on this submission : http://codeforces.com/contest/697/submission/19150824 I had typecasted every possible places where I felt overflow could occur with long long. I submitted many times but it gave wrong answer with typecast.

Then I submitted using 1ll in multiplication instead of typecast in this submission and it got accepted: http://codeforces.com/contest/697/submission/19150943

My question is why does typecasting not work and what is the difference between typecasting and 1ll?? Also when to use which because many of the solutions I coded before used typecasts and it worked well on various judges including Codeforces until I encountered this case for the first time.
