Problem types

You have an array of integers, initialized all to zero to begin with. Support two operations.

INCREMENT l r a - For each index between and , increase the th element of the array by .

SUM l r - Compute the sum of the integers between indices and , inclusive.

#### Input Specification

The first line contains two positive integers, and .

The next lines each contain a sequence of positive integers. If the first integer in the line is , then three integers follow, , , and , indicating an INCREMENT operation.

Otherwise, the first integer in the line is , and then two integers follow, and , indicating a SUM operation.

#### Output Specification

For each SUM operation, output on its own line the result of the query.

#### Sample Input

3 4
1 2 3 2
2 1 1
2 2 2
2 3 3

#### Sample Output

0
2
4

I am assuming the array starts at index 0?

so no, the array starts at index 1.

Can anyone tell me why I'm TLEing on testcase 5? I know there's some sort of optimization but I don't know the specifics.

Your time complexity is currently , which is insufficient given the constraints (this is on the order of operations, give or take). If you are stumped, you can try reading the tutorial :)).
