# The zero array

Given a zero-array (containing only 0's), it is desired to converting it to a certain target array of the same size, and only the following operations are allowed:

Increment: Choose an element from the array and increment it by 1.

Doubling: Double the value of every element on the array

What is the minimum number of operations required to convert a zero-array to the target array shown in the text file?

Details and Assumptions:

For a target array $$[2, 2, 3]$$ the minimum number of operations is 5.

[0,0,0] -> [1,0,0] -> [1,1,0] -> [1,1,1] -> [2, 2, 2] -> [2, 2, 3]
