**Mr. X and His Shots**

### Problem Statement :

A cricket match is going to be held. The field is represented by a 1D plane. A cricketer, Mr. X has N favorite shots. Each shot has a particular range. The range of the ith shot is from Ai to Bi. That means his favorite shot can be anywhere in this range. Each player on the opposite team can field only in a particular range. Player i can field from Ci to Di. You are given the N favorite shots of Mr. X and the range of M players. Si represents the strength of each player i.e. the number of shots player can stop. Your task is to find: Game Rules: A player can stop the ith shot if the range overlaps with the player's fielding range. Input Format The first line consists of two space separated integers, N and M. Each of the next N lines contains two space separated integers. The ith line contains Ai and Bi. Each of the next M lines contains two integers. The ith line contains integers Ci and Di. Output Format You need to print the sum of the strengths of all the players. Constraints: 1 <= N, M <= 10^5 1 <= Ai, Bi, Ci , Di <= 10^8

View Solution →## Self Balancing Tree

An AVL tree (Georgy Adelson-Velsky and Landis' tree, named after the inventors) is a self-balancing binary search tree. In an AVL tree, the heights of the two child subtrees of any node differ by at most one; if at any time they differ by more than one, rebalancing is done to restore this property. We define balance factor for each node as : balanceFactor = height(left subtree) - height(righ
