You did such a great job helping Julia with her last coding contest challenge that she wants you to work on this one, too!

The total score of a hacker is the sum of their maximum scores for all of the challenges. Write a query to print the hacker_id, name, and total score of the hackers ordered by the descending score. If more than one hacker achieved the same total score, then sort the result by ascending hacker_id. Exclude all hackers with a total score of 0 from your result.

Input Format

The following tables contain contest data:

  • Hackers: The hacker_id is the id of the hacker, and name is the name of the hacker. 
  • Submissions: The submission_id is the id of the submission, hacker_id is the id of the hacker who made the submission, challenge_id is the id of the challenge for which the submission belongs to, and score is the score of the submission. 

Sample Input

  • Hackers Table: 
  • Submissions Table:

Sample Output

4071 Rose 191
74842 Lisa 174
84072 Bonnie 100
4806 Angela 89
26071 Frank 85
80305 Kimberly 67
49438 Patrick 43


  • Hacker 4071 submitted solutions for challenges 19797 and 49593, so the total score = 95 + max(43, 96) = 191.
  • Hacker 74842 submitted solutions for challenges 19797 and 63132, so the total score = max(98, 5) +76 = 174
  • Hacker 84072 submitted solutions for challenges 49593 and 63132, so the total score = 100 + 0 = 100.
  • The total scores for hackers 4806, 26071, 80305, and 49438 can be similarly calculated.
