Maximum money that can be withdrawn in two steps

There are two cash lockers, one has X number of coins and the other has Y number of coins, you can withdraw money at max two times, when you withdraw from a locker you will get the total money of the locker and the locker will be refilled with Z – 1 coins if it had Z coins initially. The task is to find the maximum coins you can get.

Examples:

Input: X = 6, Y = 3
Output: 11
Take from locker X i.e. 6
Now, X = 5 and Y = 3
Take again from locker X i.e. 5.

Input: X = 4, Y = 4
Output: 8

Approach: In order to maximize the number of coins, take from the locker which has the maximum value then update the locker and again take from the locker with the maximum value.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

    // Take from the maximum

    int X = 7, Y = 5;

    return 0;
