Problem type

Since Bob has been playing too much Minecraft, he has been viewing everything in terms of Minecraft, including whenever he is hungry.

He visualizes this hunger with a hunger bar with H hunger points. If he eats A apples, he will gain at most \min(H, A) hunger points since he only has at most H hunger points.

To further this visualization, Bob will lose 1 hunger point every second.

He cannot have negative hunger points.

Initially, he has 0 hunger points when he eats the apples.

After eating the A apples instantly, he will wait S seconds and wants to know the state of his hunger bar.

Can you help him determine his remaining hunger points?
