# Lexicographically Largest Mountain List

You are given three positive integers n, lower, and upper. You want to create a list of length n that is strictly increasing and then strictly decreasing and all the numbers are between [lower, upper], inclusive. Each of the increasing and decreasing parts should be non-empty.

Return the lexicographically largest list possible, or the empty list if it’s not possible.

Constraints

• 3 ≤ n ≤ 100,000
• 1 ≤ lower ≤ upper < 2 ** 31

## Examples

### Example 1

Input

• n = 5
• lower = 2
• upper = 6

Output

• answer = [5, 6, 5, 4, 3]

Explanation

Note that [6, 5, 4, 3, 2] is not valid since the strictly increasing part has to be non-empty.

### Example 2

Input

• n = 5
• lower = 90
• upper = 92

Output

• answer = [90, 91, 92, 91, 90]

### Example 3

Input

• n = 6
• lower = 3
• upper = 5

Output

• answer = []

Explanation

It’s impossible to make a strictly increasing then decreasing list of size 6 here.

### Example 4

Input

• n = 3
• lower = 8
• upper = 11

Output

• answer = [10, 11, 10]
