Show Solutions

The word and number rearrangement machine rearranges one word and one number in each step from left to right end. It rearranges words in an alphabetical order. It arranges numbers, such that if the number of alphabets in the word is even, the number that will follow the word will be the square of the numbers of alphabets in the word and if the number of alphabets is odd, then it is the odd number that follows the word.

Input: bag 3 a jacket rest 1 36 16 the 7 3 physics mathematics 11 tasty 5

Step 1: a 1 bag 3 jacket rest 36 16 the 7 3 physics mathematics 11 tasty 5

Step 2: a 1 bag 3 jacket 36 rest 16 the 7 3 physics mathematics 11 tasty 5

Step 3: a 1 bag 3 jacket 36 mathematics 11 rest 16 the 7 3 physics tasty 5

Step 4: a 1 bag 3 jacket 36 mathematics 11 physics 7 rest 16 the 3 tasty 5

Step 5: a 1 bag 3 jacket 36 mathematics 11 physics 7 rest 16 tasty 5 the 3
