# PROBLEM

Ash is trying to get visa to Chefland. For the visa to be approved, he needs to satisfy the following three criteria:

• Solve at least x_1 problems on Codechef.
• Have at least y_1 current rating on Codechef.
• Make his last submission at most z_1 months ago.

You are given the number of problems solved by Chef (x_2), his current rating (y_2) and the information that he made his last submission z_2 months ago. Determine whether he will get the visa.

# QUICK EXPLANATION

Ash can go to chefland if and only if x_2 \geq x_1, y_2 \geq y_1 and z_2 \leq z_1 holds.

# EXPLANATION

This problem is just meant to test users familiarity with the programming language constructs, we just need to implement the mentioned conditions.

We need to check

• If the number of problems solved x_2 is at least x_1, implying we need to check whether x_2 \geq x_1 holds.
• If the current rating is at least y_2 is at least y_1, implying we need to check whether y_2 \geq y_1 holds.
• If the number of months since last submission z_2 is at most z_1, implying we need to check whether z_2 \leq z_1

If and only if all of the conditions are satisfied, Ash can go to Chefland.

One way to implement this would be using AND operator, denoted by && in most languages.

if x2 >= x1 && y2 >= y1 && z2 <= z1: YES
else: NO


Another way without AND operator is as follows, by making a count variable, storing the number of conditions satisfied.

count = 0
if x2 >= x1: count++
if y2 >= y1: count++
if z2 <= z1: count++

if count == 3: YES
else: NO


# TIME COMPLEXITY

The time complexity is O(1) per test case.

I’m having same issue, missed the contest and not able to practice now…

Exactly! its weird
