**Problem** : Tic Tac Toe 2

**Difficulty** : Easy

**Prerequisites** : Simple Maths

**Explanation** :

For the given board configuration we have to check whether it is the final state of some possible tic-tac-toe game or not. Let numX, numO and numE represents the number of X’s, number of O’s and number of dots in given board configuration. Also let xWins and oWins denotes the number of x winning possible configuration and number of o winning possible configurations respectively. There will be total of 8 winning configurations:

```
| x | | |
| | x | |
| | | x |
| x | | |
| x | | |
| x | | |
| x | x | x |

```

**Pseudocode** :

```
If |numX - numO|<=1 # Since each player gets an alternative chance in tic tac toe game
If numE>0 and xWins=0 and oWins=0 #Case when there is empty block and no player has win till now
then it is "invalid"
If xWins>0 and oWins>0 #Case when there is winning configuration of both players simultaneously
then it is "invalid"
If xWins>0
If numX > numO
then it is "valid"
Else
then it is "invalid"
If oWins>0
If numX < numO
then it is "valid"
Else
then it is "invalid"
rest all are "valid"
Else
rest all are "invalid"
