**Police Operation**

### Problem Statement :

Roy is helping the police department of his city in crime fighting. Today, they informed him about a new planned operation. Think of the city as a 2D plane. The road along the X-axis is very crime prone, because n criminals live there. No two criminals live at the same position. To catch these criminals, the police department has to recruit some police officers and give each of them USD h as wages. A police officer can start his operation from any point a, drive his car to point b in a straight line, and catch all the criminals who live on this way. The cost of fuel used by the officer's car is equal to the square of the euclidean distance between points a and b (Euclidean distance between points (xi,yi) and (x2,y2) equals to sqrt((x1,y1)^2+(y1-y2)^2). The police department asks Roy to plan this operation. So Roy has to tell them the number of officers to recruit and the routes these officers should take in order to catch all the criminals. Roy has to provide this information while minimizing the total expenses of this operation. Find out the minimum amount of money required to complete the operation. Input Format The first line contains two integers n (0 <= n <= 2*10^6), number of criminals, and h (0 <= h <= 10^9) , the cost of recruiting a police officer. The next line contains n space separated integers. The ith integer indicates the position of the criminal on X-axis (in other words, if the ith integer is x, then location of the ith criminal is (x,0)). The value of the positions are between 1 and 10^9 and are given in increasing order in the input. Output Format Print the minimum amount of money required to complete the operation.

The median of a set of integers is the midpoint value of the data set for which an equal number of integers are less than and greater than the value. To find the median, you must first sort your set of integers in non-decreasing order, then: If your set contains an odd number of elements, the median is the middle element of the sorted sample. In the sorted set { 1, 2, 3 } , 2 is the median.
