One way of achieving a smooth and economical drive to work is to ‘catch’ every traffic light, that is
have every signal change to green as you approach it. One day you notice as you come over the brow of
a hill that every traffic light you can see has just changed to green and that therefore your chances of
catching every signal is slight. As you wait at a red light you begin to wonder how long it will be before
all the lights again show green, not necessarily all turn green, merely all show green simultaneously,
even if it is only for a second.
Write a program that will determine whether this event occurs within a reasonable time. Time
is measured from the instant when they all turned green simultaneously, although the initial portion
while they are all still green is excluded from the reckoning.
Input
Input will consist of a series of scenarios. Data for each scenario will consist of a series of integers
representing the cycle times of the traffic lights, possibly spread over many lines, with no line being
longer than 100 characters. Each number represents the cycle time of a single signal. The cycle time is
the time that traffic may move in one direction; note that the last 5 seconds of a green cycle is actually
orange.
Thus the number 25 means a signal that (for a particular direction) will spend 20 seconds green,
5 seconds orange and 25 seconds red. Cycle times will not be less than 10 seconds, nor more than 90
seconds. There will always be at least two signals in a scenario and never more than 100. Each scenario
will be terminated by a zero (0).
The file will be terminated by a line consisting of three zeroes (0 0 0).
Output
Output will consist of a series of lines, one for each scenario in the input. Each line will consist of the
time in hours, minutes and seconds that it takes for all the signals to show green again after at least
one of them changes to orange. Follow the format shown in the examples. Time is measured from the
instant they all turn green simultaneously. If it takes more than five hours before they all show green
simultaneously, the message ‘Signals fail to synchronise in 5 hours’ should be written instead.
