Instructions are very simple: you get the input for all the bids and output the person with the highest bid. If there are 2 or more bids that are tied for highest, output the person that came first with the highest bid.

For the first sample, there are 3 bids: Ahmed with 300, Suzanne with 500 and Ivona with 450. Therefor Suzanne would have won because she placed the highest bid.

Hope this helped :)
