qwertytown4life is getting bullied for using Python 3. Help cheer him up by creating a program that tells him the alphabet score of a word.

A word's alphabet score is the occurrence of each letter times the place that letter is in the alphabet. For example, the string ab gives 3 because there is one a, and it is the first letter in the alphabet. So a's alphabet score 1 \times 1 = 1. Next, there is one b, and because b is the second letter in the alphabet, b's alphabet score is 1 \times 2 = 2. Therefore the string's alphabet score is 1 + 2 = 3.

Also, you must code it in Python 3.

Input Specification

You will receive one line of input containing a non-empty string S. It will only contain lowercase letters.

1 \le |S| \le 8 \times 10^6

Output Specification

Output the alphabet score of the string.

Constraints

Subtask 2 [40%]

No additional constraints.
