Shouldn't this be unambiguous? How far is a "slide"?

    There were no examples of that in the original post.

    Sigh, yet another case of an incomplete spec.

      <cough> Can you really blame it on the spec?

      Instead you could actually output the distance slid, and move on.

        I easily could, but then my output wouldn't match the requested output :)

    Well, in this case it is, because the order of the added values is unique.
