Black-White Balls


$n$ black and white balls were put into a bag. Petya doesn’t know exactly how many black balls are there among them. He knows, however, that there are $0, 1, \ldots, n$ black balls among all balls in the bag with equal probability.
Petya took $l$ balls from the bag at random, and $l_1$ of them turned out black, while $l_2$ other turned out white ($l_1+l_2=l$). Now he wants to predict how many black balls were there initially in the bag. Of course, if $l \lt n$, he can’t be sure in his prediction, but he wants to predict a segment $[a, b]$, such that the amount $k$ of black balls belongs to it with probability at least $p$.
You are given $n, l_1, l_2$ and $p$, and you must find such $a$ and $b$ that $b-a$ is minimal possible. If there are several such pairs $(a, b)$, choose the one with the smallest $a$.


袋子里有$n$个球,每个球可能是黑色或白色。已知黑球个数在$0, 1, \ldots, n$之间等概率分布。现在从中取出$l$个球,其中有$l_1$个黑球和$l_2$个白球($l_1+l_2=l$)。要求找到一个最短的区间$[a, b]$,使得黑球个数在$[a, b]$中的概率至少为${p \over 100}$。若有多个这样的区间,输出$a$最小的。
数据范围:$1 \le n \le 50, \; 0 \le l_1 \le n, \; 0 \le l_2 \le n-l_1, \; 0 \le p \le 100$。


$$P(B_i|A)={P(B_i)P(A|B_i) \over \sum_{j=0}^n P(B_j)P(A|B_j)}$$
$$P(B_i)={1 \over n+1}, \; P(A|B_i)={{i \choose l_1}{n-i \choose l_2} \over {n \choose l}}$$
