# Technical interview to solve a fairly simple problem. I proved that I am an idiot. Really don't want to work for a company that doesn't test new hires well and hires idiots. Ironic :D

Simulate throwing a dice 4 times. Print specific points for a straight, 4 of a kind, 3 of a kind, pair, or the number you rolled if no other rules apply.

I totally lost my head and could not even think about the problem. Quite embarrassing given it's not terribly hard.

Well, you can simulate a dice with a random function.

But what that 4 of a kind, pair, etc mean there?

You need to roll the dice 4 times. Of all 4 are the same number 50 points, if it's a straight like in poker 100, 3 of a kind 25 points. So on.

Never played poker so I guess I would have failed too :>

Edit: You know my religion prohibits me to gamble right?
