In this HackerEarth Optimization Game problem solution Currently, Monk is playing a unique kind of strategy game called an optimization game. In this game, we are provided with an array containing integral numbers. Now all these numbers represent the count of their respective index power of 2. The goal of the game is to minimize the total sum of the count of the array by converting lower powers of 2 into their higher powers i.e.
