Problem types

Today, Sam is learning all about circles and squares at school! Unfortunately, Sam is an alpaca and doesn't have a very good sense of size. As his best friend, you have been tasked with helping him determine the larger shape (it is guaranteed that one is larger than the other).

Note: The area of a square is defined as S^2 and the area of a circle is defined as 3.14 \times R^2.


1 \le S,R \le 10^4

Input Specification

The first line will contain space-separated integers S and R, denoting the side length of the square and the radius of the circle respectively.

Output Specification

Output SQUARE if the area of the square is larger, and CIRCLE otherwise.

Sample Input 1

6 2

Sample Output 1


Explanation for Sample Output 1

The square has area 6^2=36, and the circle has area 3.14 \times 2^2=12.56. Therefore, the area of the square is larger.

Sample Input 2

12 124

Sample Output 2

    Why is the second case not working?

      X \text{^}Y does NOT mean X to the power of Y. It actually means X XOR Y.
      Many languages such as Python, Java, and C++ have built-in functions for raising numbers to powers. (such as pow in C++ and Math.pow in Java).
      However, writing your own exponentiation function is often preferred over using your languages built-in functions due to precision errors.

        Thank you.
