Given two arrays A[] and B[] of same size n. We need to first permute any of arrays such that the sum of product of pairs( 1 element from each) is minimum. That is ** SUM ( Ai*Bi) for all i** is minimum. We also need to count number of de-arrangements present in original array as compared to permuted array.

Examples:

Input : A[] = {4, 3, 2}, B[] = {7, 12, 5} Output : 3 Explanation : A[] = {4, 3, 2} and B[] = {5, 7, 12} results in minimum product sum. B[] = {7, 12, 5} is 3-position different from new B[]. Input : A[] = {4, 3, 2}, B[] = { 1, 2, 3} Output : 0 Explanation : A[] = {4, 3, 2} and B[] = {1, 2, 3} results in minimum product sum. B[] = {1, 2, 3} is exactly same as new one.

Idea behind finding the minimum sum of product from two array is to sort both array one in increasing and other in decreasing manner. These type of arrays will always produce minimum sum of pair product. Sorting both array will give the pair value i.e. which element from A is paired to which element from B[]. After that count the de-arrangement from original arrays.

** Algorithm :**

- make a copy of both array.
- sort copy_A[] in increasing, copy_B[] in decreasing order.
- Iterate for all Ai, find Ai in copy_A[] as copy_A[j] and

check whether copy_B[j] == B[i] or not. Increment count if not equal. - Return Count Value. That will be our answer.
