## A - Six Characters Editorial by en_translator

As stated in the Constraint, the length of $$S$$ is either $$1$$, $$2$$, or $$3$$.

• If the length of $$S$$ is $$1$$, print $$6$$ copies of $$S$$;
• If the length of $$S$$ is $$2$$, print $$3$$ copies of $$S$$;
• If the length of $$S$$ is $$3$$, print $$2$$ copies of $$S$$.

We can do different process depending on the length of a string with the feature of conditional branch (like if statement) which is a standard feature of programming languages.

The following is a sample code in C++.

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main(void)
{
string s;
cin >> s;

if(s.size() == 1) cout << s+s+s+s+s+s << endl;
if(s.size() == 2) cout << s+s+s << endl;
if(s.size() == 3) cout << s+s << endl;

return 0;
}
