Problem description

given n An integer represents a store n Sales volume per day . If by one day sales were growing , The day after that, sales dropped , This day is called the break point , On the other hand, if the previous sales decrease, the next day sales increase , This day is also called the break point . No other day is a break point .
given n An integer a1, a2, …, an Represents sales volume , Please calculate the total number of discount points these days .
In order to reduce ambiguity , Our given data guarantee ： Here it is n The sales volume of two consecutive days in a day is always different , Namely ai-1≠ai. be careful , If two days are not adjacent , Sales may be the same .

Input format

The first line of input contains an integer n.
The second line contains n An integer , Separate with spaces , Respectively a1, a2, …, an.

Output format

Output an integer , Indicates the number of break points .

sample input

7
5 4 1 2 3 6 4

sample output

Scale and convention of evaluation case

All evaluation cases meet ：1 ≤ n ≤ 1000, The daily sales volume is no more than 10000 Nonnegative integers of .
