i did the same thing

apparently the accepted code is-

```
while(n>2)
{
if(n==5 ) n-=3;
else if(n%5 == 0) n/=5;
else n-=3;
ans++;
}
```

this code clearly fails in the following tc-

1

20

correct:6

accpeted:-1

i tried against ranks 1,2,3 and all of them gave the same error

its not always optimal to do n/5 if n is divisible by 5

Yes you are right it can be seen that 20 can be changed to 2.

20 → 17 → 14 → 11 → 8 → 5 → 2 in six step

so what can be a valid solution for it. i have a tle solution .Does anyone knows .Please reply it help me improve !!

Thanks
