Question

Given a 6×6 2D Array, arr:

1 1 1 0 0 0

0 1 0 0 0 0

1 1 1 0 0 0

0 0 0 0 0 0

0 0 0 0 0 0

0 0 0 0 0 0

An hourglass in A is a subset of values with indices falling in this pattern in arr’s graphical representation:

a b c

d

e f g

There are 16 hourglasses in arr. An hourglass sum is the sum of an hourglass’ values. Calculate the hourglass sum for every hourglass in arr, then print the maximum hourglass sum. The array will always be 6×6.

Example

arr =

-9 -9 -9 1 1 1

0 -9 0 4 3 2

-9 -9 -9 1 2 3

0 0 8 6 6 0

0 0 0 -2 0 0

0 0 1 2 4 0

The 16 hourglass sums are:

-63, -34, -9, 12,

-10, 0, 28, 23,

-27, -11, -2, 10,

9, 17, 25, 18

The highest hourglass sum is 28 from the hourglass beginning at row 1, column 2:

0 4 3

1

8 6 6

Function Description

Complete the function hourglassSum in the editor below.

hourglassSum has the following parameter(s):

int arr[6][6]: an array of integers

Returns

int: the maximum hourglass sum

Input Format

Each of the 6 lines of inputs arr[i] contains 6 space-separated integers arr[i][j].

Constraints

-9 <= arr[i][j] <= 9

0 <= i,j <= 5

Output Format

Print the largest (maximum) hourglass sum found in arr.
