Bocchi the Builder has just finished constructing her latest project: a pathway consisting of two rows of white equilateral triangular tiles. However, at the last moment, disaster struck, and she accidentally spilled black paint on some of the tiles! Now, she must purchase warning tape to block off the wet areas. Can you help her determine how many meters of tape she needs?

The first triangle will always point upwards, and any pair of adjacent tiles (that is, tiles that share a common side) will point in opposite directions. Every triangle has a side length of 1 meter.

Input Specification

The first line will consist of one integer, , representing the number of columns.

The next two lines will each consist of integers separated by spaces. Each integer represents the colour of a tile in the room, with 1 indicating that the tile is black and 0 indicating that the tile is white.

The following table shows how the available 15 marks are distributed:

Marks Awarded Bounds on Additional Constraints
3 marks Black tiles will never be adjacent and the second row is fully white.
3 marks The second row is fully white.
5 marks None
4 marks None

Output Specification

Output a single integer representing the length of the tape Bocchi must purchase in meters.
