Submitting an official solution before solving the problem yourself is a bannable offence.

First, sort the flowers from least to greatest, then starting at the N^{th} flower, start adding downwards. i.e.: F[N]^1+F[N-1]^2+\dots+F[1]^N where F is the array of all flowers at the shop.

Time complexity: \mathcal{O}(F \log F)
