Input : 25 93 as hill stamp bolt 45 34 63 total 13 alter rise
Step I : alter 25 93 as hill stamp bolt 45 34 63 total rise 13
Step II : alter as 93 hill stamp bolt 45 34 63 total rise 25 13
Step III : alter as bolt 93 hill stamp 45 63 total rise 34 25 13
Step IV : alter as bolt hill 93 stamp 63 total rise 45 34 25 13
Step V : alter as bolt hill rise 93 stamp total 63 45 34 25 13
Step VI : alter as bolt hill rise stamp total 93 63 45 34 25 13
