**Preprocessor Solution C++**

### Problem Statement :

Preprocessor directives are lines included in the code preceded by a hash sign (#). These lines are directives for the preprocessor. The preprocessor examines the code before actual compilation of code begins and resolves all these directives before any code is actually generated by regular statements. #define INF 10000000 if( val == INF) { //Do something } After the preprocessor has replaced the directives, the code will be if( val == 10000000) { //Here INF is replaced by the value with which it's defined. //Do something } You can also define function macros which have parameters. #define add(a, b) a + b int x = add(a, b); The second statement after the preprocessor has replaced the directives will be: int x = a + b; To know more about preprocessor directives, you can go to this link You're spending your afternoon at a local school, teaching kids how to code. You give them a simple task: find the difference between the maximum and minimum values in an array of integers. After a few hours, they came up with some promising source code. Unfortunately, it doesn't compile! Since you don't want to discourage them, you decide to make their code work without modifying it by adding preprocessor macros. Review the locked stub code in your editor and add the preprocessor macros necessary to make the code work. Input Format The first line contains an integer, N , denoting the size of the array. The second line contains N space-separated integers, x1, x2, . . . . , xn , describing the elements in the array. Constraints 1 <= N <= 10^3 -10^8 <= xi <= 10^8 Output Format You are not responsible for printing any output to stdout. Once the necessary preprocessor macros are written, the locked code in your editor will print a line that says Result = Z , where Z is the difference between the maximum and minimum values in the array.

### Solution :

` ````
Solution in C :
#define io(v) cin >> v
#define foreach(v, i) for (int i = 0; i < v.size(); i++)
#define minimum(a, b) a = min(a, b)
#define maximum(a, b) a = max(a, b)
#define toStr(s) #s
#define FUNCTION(fun, cmp)
#define INF 0x3f3f3f3f

## Unique Colors

You are given an unrooted tree of n nodes numbered from 1 to n . Each node i has a color, ci. Let d( i , j ) be the number of different colors in the path between node i and node j. For each node i, calculate the value of sum, defined as follows: Your task is to print the value of sumi for each node 1 <= i <= n. Input Format The first line contains a single integer, n, denoti

Shashank loves trees and math. He has a rooted tree, T , consisting of N nodes uniquely labeled with integers in the inclusive range [1 , N ]. The node labeled as 1 is the root node of tree , and each node in is associated with some positive integer value (all values are initially ). Let's define Fk as the Kth Fibonacci number. Shashank wants to perform 22 types of operations over his tree, T
