Catch That Cow
x

Description

Farmer John has been informed of the location of a fugitive cow and wants to catch her immediately. He starts at a point N (0 ≤ N ≤ 100,000) on a number line and the cow is at a point K (0 ≤ K ≤ 100,000) on the same number line. Farmer John has two modes of transportation: walking and teleporting.

  • Walking: FJ can move from any point X to the points X - 1 or X + 1 in a single minute
  • Teleporting: FJ can move from any point X to the point 2 × X in a single minute.

If the cow, unaware of its pursuit, does not move at all, how long does it take for Farmer John to retrieve it?

Input

Line 1: Two space-separated integers: N and K
Output

Line 1: The least amount of time, in minutes, it takes for Farmer John to catch the fugitive cow.
Sample Input

5 17
Sample Output

4
