Given an array of positive integers of size N. Count the number of good pairs (i,j) such that:

  • 1≤ i ≤ N,
  • 1≤ j ≤ N
  • and arri < arrj.

Example 1

N = 2
arr[] = {2, 1}  
Output: 1
Explanation : The only good pair is (2,1). 

Example 2

N = 3
arr[] = {2 ,3, 2}
Output: 2
Explanation: The two good pairs are (2,3) 
and (3,2).

Your Task:
You don't need to read input or print anything. Your task is to complete the function solve() which takes the array arr[] and its size N as inputs and returns the count of good pairs as described in the problem description.

Expected Time Complexity: O(N log N)
Expected Auxiliary Space: O(1)

1 <= N <= 10^5
1 <= a[i] <= 10^3
