Troy loves triangles. He especially likes counting triangles. He has an N-by-N grid consisting of either “.” or “#” characters. Help him count the number of triangles formed only by “#” characters in the grid. Triangles are of the form
More formally, a triangle of height h consists of h rows for some positive integer h. The ith row contains 2i − 1 “#” characters for i = 1, . . . , h. The rows are centred above each other so that they are symmetrical about a vertical line down their middle.
The first line contains the number N (1 ≤ N ≤ 2000) representing the size of the grid. The next N lines each contain N characters as described above.
Output the number of triangles in the grid.
Explanation of Output for Sample Input
There are 11 triangles of height one, 4 triangles of height two and 1 triangle of height three.
