I believe we have different interpretations of the mechanics of this problem.

Spoiler for Some remarks

This wasn't my understanding. I assumed that the first Ctrl+V replaces the three typed A's since they're still selected, much like everyday word-processing software. In otherwords:
- Ctrl+A selects
- Ctrl+C copies
- The three A's are still selected
- Ctrl+V replaces the selected A's with pasted ones.
That was the basis for my work, though your interpretation may well be correct. Maybe BMAD could clarify exactly how the process works?

Edit: From BMAD's examples it looks to be the case that the typed A's are indeed replaced. However, your interpretation would make an equally interesting puzzle! :)

Also excuse the messiness again, working on it whilst I'm writing is never a good idea! Btw, is there a neat way of indicating the less-than-or-equal symbol?

A quick solution. Bear in mind it's 4am here and this is my first post on BD in years, so forgive the terrible formatting!



Spoiler for Not sure about an actual code, but it'll look something like this.
