Canadian Computing Competition: 2014 Stage 1, Junior #2

A vote is held after singer A and singer B compete in the final round of a singing competition. Your job is to count the votes and determine the outcome.

Input Specification

The input will be two lines. The first line will contain V (1 \le V \le 15), the total number of votes. The second line of input will be a sequence of V characters, each of which will be A or B, representing the votes for a particular singer.

Output Specification

The output will be one of three possibilities:

  • A, if there are more A votes than B votes;
  • B, if there are more B votes than A votes;
  • Tie, if there are an equal number of A votes and B votes.

    Is the V input used only for the iteration?

    At first I thought it would be used to build the sequence of characters, but then in the end, I realized it wasn't.

      Yes, it is there to tell you how many characters there will be, as stated by the problem.

      For example, if you are to ignore it, you will need 2 for-loops to get the answer, instead of one
