# HackerRank Absolute Element Sums problem solution

In this HackerRank Absolute Element Sums problem solution, you have given an array of integers and a single integer x and we need to add x to each element of the array permanently modifying it for any future queries. and also find the absolute value of each element in the array and print the sum of the absolute values on a new line.

## Problem solution in Python.

```n = int(input())
arr = list(map(int, input().split()))

q = int(input())
queries = list(map(int, input().split()))

count = [0]*4001
for i in arr:
count[2000 + i] += 1

sum_num_right = []
sum_num_right.append(n)
for i in range(4000):
sum_num_right.append(sum_num_right[i] - count[i])

sum_right = [0]*4001
for i in range(4001):
sum_right[0] += count[i] * i

for i in range(1,4001):
sum_right[i] = sum_right[i - 1] - sum_num_right[i]

sum_left = [0]*4001
for i in range(4000, -1, -1):
sum_left[4000] += count[i] * (4000 - i)

for i in range(3999, -1, -1):
sum_left[i] = sum_left[i + 1] - (n - sum_num_right[i + 1])

acc = 0
for i in queries:
acc += i
mid = 2000 - acc
if mid < 4001 and mid >= 0:
print(sum_right[mid] + sum_left[mid])
elif mid < 0:
print(sum_right[0] + n * abs(mid))
else:
print(sum_left[4000] + n * (mid - 4000))
```
