# Mate In 3

Logic Level 2

It is White's move. What must White play in order to mate in 3?

The bottom left corner square has coordinates $$(1, 1)$$. Each piece has a value: $$\text{Queen}=10$$, $$\text{Rook}=5$$, $$\text{Pawn}=1$$ and $$\text{King}=4$$.

Submit your answer as $$V\times { x }_{ 1 }\times { y }_{ 1 }$$, where $$V$$ denotes the value of the piece that White must move and the coordinates of the square where it has to go are $$\left( { x }_{ 1 },{ y }_{ 1 } \right)$$.

Clarification: Black plays optimally.
