The soldiers want to get into a horizontal line next to each other (so that their final positions are (x,y), (x+1,y), ..., (x+N1,y), for some x and y). Integers x and y, as well as the final order of soldiers along the horizontal line is arbitrary.
The goal is to minimise the total number of moves of all the soldiers that takes them into such configuration.
Two or more soldiers must never occupy the same position at the same
time.
The following N lines of the input file contain initial positions of
the soldiers : for each i, 1 £ i £ N, the (i+1)^{st}
line of the input file contains a pair of integers x[i] and y[i] separated
by a single blank character, representing the coordinates of the i^{th}
soldier, 10000 £ x[i],y[i] £ 10000.

Bob and Alice used to live in the city 1. After noticing that Alice was cheating in the card game they liked to play, Bob broke up with her and decided to move away  to the city N. He wants to get there as quickly as possible, but he is short on cash.
We want to help Bob to find the shortest path from the city 1
to the city N that he can afford with the amount of money he has.
The second line contains the integer N, 2 £ N £ 100, the total number of cities.
The third line contains the integer R, 1 £ R £ 10000, the total number of roads.
Each of the following R lines describes one road by specifying integers S, D, L and T separated by single blank characters :
If such path does not exist, only number 1 should be written to the
output file.

The puzzle has 12 equal pentagon sides, labelled with numbers 1 ...
12. The figure below shows the two hemispheres of the dodecahedron, together
with the side labelling we will use in this problem. Hemispheres are "glued"
together in such a way that the side 7 is adjacent to the sides 8, 12,
11, 2 and 6 (sides are adjacent if they share an edge). In particular,
edges a and b on the left hemisphere will be glued to the
edges a and b on the right hemisphere shown below.
In addition to that, there are 12 pentagonshaped tiles, also labelled from 1 to 12. Every edge on each of the tiles is marked with a number from the set {0, 1, 2}. Each tile can be placed on each of the twelve sides in any of the 5 positions obtained by rotating the tile around its centre.
To solve the puzzle, we need to put each tile on some of the twelve dodecahedron sides in some position, so that every two adjacent tiles have their common edge marked with the same number.
Help Professor Balltazar to solve the puzzle !
The i^{th} side will hold the tile labelled t[i].
The tile can be placed on the i^{th} side in five different positions. The exact position is specified by n[i], which denotes the label of the adjacent side which is in the direction of the t[i]^{th} reference edge (looking from the centre of the i^{th} side). Precisely, the t[i]^{th} reference edge is placed on the dodecahedron edge shared by the sides labelled i and n[i].
If the puzzle can not be solved, only number 1 should be written to
the output file.
