### Codeforces 461C - Appleman and a Sheet of Paper

Problem Statement:
461C - Appleman and a Sheet of Paper

Solution:
The idea is use segment tree, since each fold we will reduce the length for the fold by the length of the smaller part, there will be at most $$O(N)$$ updates. Hence the running time of the tree will be $$O(N\lg{N})$$ overall.

The catch is to "flip" the perspective of the tree when we are face with the case where folding one part on top of the other will lead to the top part covering the whole of lower part. This is bad since we will end up with a very big indexes. By folding the smaller part on top of the lower part instead, and flipping our perspective afterwards, we can limit the size of the tree into $$O(N)$$.

Implementation: (implementation hell btw)

#include <iostream>
#include <algorithm>
#include <cstdio>
using namespace std;

long long segtree[1000000];
int N, Q;
int flipped;

void build(int p, int L, int R){
if(L == R){
if(L < N) segtree[p] = 1;
return;
}
build(2*p, L, (L+R)/2);
build(2*p+1, (L+R)/2 + 1, R);
segtree[p] = segtree[2*p] + segtree[2*p+1];
}

void update(int p, int L, int R, int S, int T, long long val){
if(R < S || T < L) return;
if(S <= L && R <= T){
segtree[p] += val;
return;
}
update(2*p, L, (L+R)/2, S, T, val);
update(2*p+1, (L+R)/2 + 1, R, S, T, val);
segtree[p] = segtree[2*p] + segtree[2*p+1];
}

long long query(int p, int L, int R, int S, int T){
if(R < S || T < L) return -1;
if(S <= L && R <= T) {
return segtree[p];
}
long long left = query(2*p, L, (L+R)/2, S, T);
long long right = query(2*p+1, (L+R)/2 + 1, R, S, T);
if(left == -1) return right;
if(right == -1) return left;
return left + right;
}
