A dieter consumes calories[i] calories on the i-th day.  For every consecutive sequence of k days, they look at T, the total calories consumed during that sequence of k days:

• If T < lower, they performed poorly on their diet and lose 1 point;
• If T > upper, they performed well on their diet and gain 1 point;
• Otherwise, they performed normally and there is no change in points.

Return the total number of points the dieter has after all calories.length days.

Note that: The total points could be negative.

Example 1:

Input: calories = [1,2,3,4,5], k = 1, lower = 3, upper = 3
Output: 0
Explaination: calories[0], calories[1] < lower and calories[3], calories[4] > upper, total points = 0.

Example 2:

Input: calories = [3,2], k = 2, lower = 0, upper = 1
Output: 1
Explaination: calories[0] + calories[1] > upper, total points = 1.


Example 3:

Input: calories = [6,5,0,0], k = 2, lower = 1, upper = 5
Output: 0
Explaination: calories[0] + calories[1] > upper, calories[2] + calories[3] < lower, total points = 0.


Constraints:

• 1 <= k <= calories.length <= 10^5
• 0 <= calories[i] <= 20000
• 0 <= lower <= upper

## Solution: Sliding Window

Maintain the sum of a sliding window length of k.

Time complexity: O(n)
Space complexity: O(1)

Today, the bookstore owner has a store open for customers.length minutes.  Every minute, some number of customers (customers[i]) enter the store, and all those customers leave after the end of that minute.

On some minutes, the bookstore owner is grumpy.  If the bookstore owner is grumpy on the i-th minute, grumpy[i] = 1, otherwise grumpy[i] = 0.  When the bookstore owner is grumpy, the customers of that minute are not satisfied, otherwise they are satisfied.

The bookstore owner knows a secret technique to keep themselves not grumpy for X minutes straight, but can only use it once.

Return the maximum number of customers that can be satisfied throughout the day.

Example 1:

Input: customers = [1,0,1,2,1,1,7,5], grumpy = [0,1,0,1,0,1,0,1], X = 3
Output: 16
Explanation: The bookstore owner keeps themselves not grumpy for the last 3 minutes.
The maximum number of customers that can be satisfied = 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 7 + 5 = 16.


Note:

• 1 <= X <= customers.length == grumpy.length <= 20000
• 0 <= customers[i] <= 1000
• 0 <= grumpy[i] <= 1

## Solution: Sliding Window

Sum the costumers of non grumpy minutes, recording the max sum of the sliding window of size X.

Time complexity: O(n)
Space complexity: o(n)
