Take an array with n elements with possibly duplicate elements as the input. The task is to find the index of the first occurrences of the element x in the array and, if it is not present, return -1.

Input Format:

The first line contains an integer N representing the size of the array.

The next line contains N space-separated integers representing the elements of the array.

The last line contains an integer 'x' whose index has to be found.

Output Format:

The only line of the output prints the Index or -1.
Constraints:
1 <= N <= 10^3
1 <= arr[i] <= 10^9
1 <= x < N
