My Simple Solution Using Binary Search

  • 2
    class Solution {
    	int countRangeSum(vector<int>& nums, int lower, int upper) {
    		vector<pair<long long,int> > ps;
    		long long s = 0;
    		ps.push_back(make_pair(0, -1));
    		for(int i=0; i<nums.size(); ++i){
    			ps.push_back(make_pair(s, i));
    		sort(ps.begin(), ps.end());
    		int ans = 0;
    		for(int i=0; i<ps.size(); ++i){
    			pair<long long,int> pp(ps[i].first + lower, 0);
    			int x1 = lower_bound(ps.begin(), ps.end(), pp)- ps.begin();
    			pp = make_pair(ps[i].first+upper, ps.size());
    			int x2 = upper_bound(ps.begin(), ps.end(), pp)- ps.begin();
    			for(int j=x1; j<x2; ++j){
    				if(ps[j].second > ps[i].second)
    		return ans;

    The inner loop makes it O(n^2)

    You are right. And I find that replace the binary search phase by binary index tree can make it O(nlogn) .

    I'm curiosity about how to solve the badest situaction ,because we need the second element of the pair.
