Compare the Triplets


Problem Statement :


Alice and Bob each created one problem for HackerRank. A reviewer rates the two challenges, awarding points on a scale from 1 to 100 for three categories: problem clarity, originality, and difficulty.

The rating for Alice's challenge is the triplet a = (a[0], a[1], a[2]), and the rating for Bob's challenge is the triplet b = (b[0], b[1], b[2]).

The task is to find their comparison points by comparing a[0] with b[0], a[1] with b[1], and a[2] with b[2].

    If a[i] > b[i], then Alice is awarded 1 point.
    If a[i] < b[i], then Bob is awarded 1 point.
    If a[i] = b[i], then neither person receives a point.

Comparison points is the total points a person earned.

Given a and b, determine their respective comparison points.

Example

a = [1, 2, 3]
b = [3, 2, 1]

    For elements *0*, Bob is awarded a point because a[0] .
    For the equal elements a[1] and b[1], no points are earned.
    Finally, for elements 2, a[2] > b[2] so Alice receives a point.

The return array is [1, 1] with Alice's score first and Bob's second.

    int b[3]: Bob's challenge rating

Return

    int[2]: Alice's score is in the first position, and Bob's score is in the second.

Input Format

The first line contains 3 space-separated integers, a[0], a[1], and a[2], the respective values in triplet a.
The second line contains 3 space-separated integers, b[0], b[1], and b[2], the respective values in triplet b.

Constraints

Is This a Binary Search Tree?

For the purposes of this challenge, we define a binary tree to be a binary search tree with the following ordering requirements: The data value of every node in a node's left subtree is less than the data value of that node. The data value of every node in a node's right subtree is greater than the data value of that node. Given the root node of a binary tree, can you determine if it's also a

Square-Ten Tree

The square-ten tree decomposition of an array is defined as follows: The lowest () level of the square-ten tree consists of single array elements in their natural order. The level (starting from ) of the square-ten tree consists of subsequent array subsegments of length in their natural order. Thus, the level contains subsegments of length , the level contains subsegments of length , the

Balanced Forest

Greg has a tree of nodes containing integer data. He wants to insert a node with some non-zero integer value somewhere into the tree. His goal is to be able to cut two edges and have the values of each of the three new trees sum to the same amount. This is called a balanced forest. Being frugal, the data value he inserts should be minimal. Determine the minimal amount that a new node can have to a

Jenny's Subtrees

Jenny loves experimenting with trees. Her favorite tree has n nodes connected by n - 1 edges, and each edge is ` unit in length. She wants to cut a subtree (i.e., a connected part of the original tree) of radius r from this tree by performing the following two steps: 1. Choose a node, x , from the tree. 2. Cut a subtree consisting of all nodes which are not further than r units from node x .
