To complete a c++ assignment, the goal is to master the technical details of updating a “sliding window hash” in an array.

**First Task:** Storing the Input in an Array of Integers

**Second Task:** Counting Symmetries the Slow Way Please write code that counts the total number of symmetries in the way we just described; that is, For every index, i = 1, 2, 3, ...Determine if the entire array starting at index 0matches the entire array starting at index i (wrapping around as appropriate). Stop at the first such index i that is a match. Output the array length divided by i.

**Third Task:** Counting Symmetries Faster with Hashing We can make our algorithm faster as follows: Let H be a polynomial hash of the entire array, starting at index 0For every index i = 1, 2, 3, ...Let H’ be the updated hash for the entire array, starting at index iIf H == H’, then check to see if there is actually a match at index i. Stop at the first such index i that is a match. Output the array length divided by i. The slow.cpp will contain the code for the non-hashing and the fast.cpp contains the hashing.

**Solution:**

**
**

```
#include < iostream>
using namespace std;
int compute_hash(const int n, const int start, const int x, const int p, const int* A) {
int H = 0;
for ( int i = 0; i < n; i++ ) {
H = (int)( ( (long long)H * x + A[( start + i ) % n] ) % p );
}
return H;
}
int main( int argc, char** argv ) {
int *A;
int *B;
int i, j, k;
char cmd;
int value;
int match;
int H, H_dash;
int seed = 13;
int p = 1000000007;
int tmp;
// First Task: Storing the Input in an Array of Integers
