The only thing that matters is the functionality. It might not be optimized but it just needs to work.

Nope, you will be shocked how simple the solution is!

I am sooooo struggling! I think I need a right idea, because I am thinking in the wrong way. I believe that there is a too simplie soultion for this but I can’t get it!

Mine has 39 blocks too! OMG I’m so happy that I found a way that you probably found too!

If your solution works you can post it here under two tags: details & spoiler

Yeah it can be that I used global variable but not local or idk what.

Ok. my solution is here: tell me if something is wrong, because I have no emulator, and my companion is not useable now. So I couldn’t check the solution.

Tested on 30 different examples.

```
[n,m] = map(int, input().split())
if (n+m)%3==1:print(1)
else:print(0)
```

I **knew** ther was a muuuuch easier solution. But I never was interested in maths so I even didn’t knew what modulo was. now I know it. Thx @Mateja!

What’s with my “solution”? Is it really one or just something working on several numbers but not all?

nope.

It works. The question is…which answer should I mark as the solution?

I don’t mind about solution. Mark yours, it uses less blocks.

i was too on the same path bur really was not able to figure out the way before you guys, i was also approaching it from matrices and was generalizing the formula for the same

anyways , a nice challenge. Looking forward for more such in future

I checked it and I know why it’s not working. 1 - 5 is a neg number, and these I haven’t implemented in my code. So that’s my solution, and I hope it works now:

Also, I have 60 blocks, so that’s not a good solution.

X=7 Y=8 must be 0. 7-8=-1. So still not working

Yeah, this is not a solution.

I just hoped this works but it’s no mathematical and just too long (blocks), so this is just nothin. In future, I will also learn math blocks (from today on).

Thx, @Mateja !

Great challenge that has infected me with curiosity!
