Given a sorted array with possibly duplicate elements. The task is to find indexes of first and last occurrences of an element **X** in the given array.

**Note: **If the element is not present in the array **return {-1,-1} as pair**.

**Example 1:**

Input:N = 9 v[] = {1, 3, 5, 5, 5, 5, 67, 123, 125} X = 5Output:2 5Explanation:Index of first occurrence of 5 is 2 and index of last occurrence of 5 is 5.

**Example 2:**

**Input:**
N = 9
v[] = {1, 3, 5, 5, 5, 5, 7, 123, 125}
X = 7
**Output:**
6 6

**Your Task: **

You don't need to read input or print anything. Your task is to complete the function **indexes()** which takes the array **v[]**** **and an integer **X **as inputs and returns the first and last occurrence of the element **X**. If the element is not present in the array **return {-1,-1} as pair**.

Can you solve the problem in expected time complexity?

**Expected Time Complexity:** O(Log(N))

**Expected Auxiliary Space:** O(1)

**Constraints:**

1 ≤ N ≤ 10^{5}

1 ≤ v[i], X ≤ 10^{18}
