# Are you happy or unhappy? (You thought it was over?)

Algebra Level pending

A slight change in the problem:

Remember, in the previous problem, we were taking one dot away from the first sector and putting it in the next sector. Then, we took away two dots from the second sector and put it in the next sector, and so on and so forth.

1. Take one dot from first sector, put it in next sector.

2. Take two dots from 2nd sector (from where you just put 1 dot in) and put it in next sector.

3. NOW Instead of taking one away from the next sector, you take 3 dots away from the next sector.

And repeat the pattern.

Of course, the same rules apply for happy and unhappy number as from before.

What is the largest happy number with these new rules lower than 5,000,000,000?
