##### Woburn Challenge 2015-16 Round 2 - Junior Division

"It is a period of civil war. Rebel programs, striking from a hidden computer, have won their first victory against the evil System Tests."

You might be aware that the events of the Star Wars saga took place a long time ago, in a galaxy that was rather far away. But just how far away was it? We can try to describe it by repeating the word far a certain number of times in the following sentence format:

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

In the above example, the word far is repeated twice. However, we'd instead like to repeat it exactly times without changing the rest of the sentence at all. There should be a comma right after each occurrence except for the last one.

Given , can you produce the correct sentence?

#### Input Specification

The input consists of a single integer .

#### Output Specification

Output on a single line the appropriate sentence with far repeated times. It must match the correct answer exactly!

#### Sample Input 1

1

#### Sample Output 1

A long time ago in a galaxy far away...

#### Sample Input 2

4

#### Sample Output 2

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far, far, far away...

Good problem, took me a while to solve this.

I can see that my output is printing out correctly but it keeps saying “Your output is clipped”. Hmm what could I do to fix?

Cause the output's too long. You can't fix it, that's on purpose.

Is the above expecting 3 inputs, sentence, word to be repeated and count ?

• commented on Sept. 3, 2022, 3:37 p.m.

The input consists of a single integer N.

Only one input, number of times you should repeat the word "far".

The base sentence is "A long time ago in a galaxy [something] away..."

Very nice challenge! I was stuck on it at first but noticed the pattern :) . Very good problem. Thank you SourSpinach.

Trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong. I'm confident I'm solving the problem efficiently:

What did I do wrong? Thanks in advance.

1. Don't post your code in the comments: anyone who has solved the problem can see your submissions.
2. Check your output against the samples very carefully. You are missing something...
