__Problem____Statement :Problem22__

Using names.txt
(right click and 'Save Link/Target As...'), a 46K text file containing
over five-thousand first names, begin by sorting it into alphabetical
order. Then working out the alphabetical value for each name, multiply
this value by its alphabetical position in the list to obtain a name
score.

For example, when the list is sorted into alphabetical order, COLIN, which is worth 3 + 15 + 12 + 9 + 14 = 53, is the 938th name in the list. So, COLIN would obtain a score of 938 53 = 49714.

What is the total of all the name scores in the file?

__Approach:__- Just follow what is written in the problem

*Solution:*import java.util.Arrays; public class problem22 { public static void main(String args[]) { String x;//read from file long t1=System.currentTimeMillis(); String arr[]=x.split(","); Arrays.sort(arr); long total=0; for(int i=0;i
