A small frog wants to get to the other side of the road. The frog is currently located at position X and wants to get to a position greater than or equal to Y. The small frog always jumps a fixed distance, D.
Count the minimal number of jumps that the small frog must perform to reach its target.
Write a function:
function solution(X, Y, D);
that, given three integers X, Y and D, returns the minimal number of jumps from position X to a position equal to or greater than Y.
For example, given:X = 10 Y = 85 D = 30
the function should return 3, because the frog will be positioned as follows:
- after the first jump, at position 10 + 30 = 40
- after the second jump, at position 10 + 30 + 30 = 70
- after the third jump, at position 10 + 30 + 30 + 30 = 100
Write an efficient algorithm for the following assumptions:
- X, Y and D are integers within the range [1..1,000,000,000];
- X ≤ Y.
The solution obtained perfect score.
no jump needed
one big jump
