In this HackerRank Accessory Collection problem solution we have given L, A, N, and D values for T shopping trips, find and print the maximum amount of money that Victoria can spend during each trip; if it's not possible for Victoria to make a purchase during a certain trip, print SAD instead. You must print your answer for each trip on a new line.
