Help me code this problem in c c++ or java

A program to solve the following problem.  You can use C, C++, C#, Java or Haskell to code your solution.    The problem  You have a block of platinum that can be exchanged in your bank either for cash  or for smaller blocks of platinum. If you exchange a block of m grams, you get  three blocks of weight m/2, m/3 and m/4 grams each. You don't get any fractional  part, as the division process rounds down the value. If you exchange the block of  platinum for cash, you get m units of currency. You can do any number of  exchanges for smaller blocks or currency.  Given the value of a block in grams as input, write a program that would print the  largest possible currency value that you can receive as the output. Assume that  the maximum value of a block that can be given as an input is 1,000,000,000  grams and the minimum value is 2 grams.    Sample input 1  12    Sample output 1  13    Explanation: You can change 12 into blocks of 12/2 = 6, 12/3 = 4 and 12/4 = 3,  and then exchange these for 6 + 4 + 3 = 13 units of currencyTCS Ignite Open Lab  4    Sample input 2 2    Sample output 2 2    Explanation: If you exchange 2 grams into smaller blocks, it gives 2/2 = 1, 2/3 =  0, 2/4 = 0, only 1 unit. Instead, you can directly exchange the block for 2 units of  currency.    Please note that your  program SHOULD NOT print any prompts (Please type the value of the block)  nor any header /footer (Block Max Value) as part of its output.  For example, if you are asked to print out the simple interest correct to two  decimal places for a user specified values of principal, rate of interest and  number of years, then only the following statements should be there  corresponding to reading the input and printing the output:  scanf(%d %d %d, &principal, &rate, &years);  printf(%8.2f\n, principalrateyears/100.0);  				  			

  				  					So, what have you already done and what difficulty do you have with?

This problem is a basic recursion - if you know how recursion works (and think a bit ) you should be able to solve it.    But, a bit of advice - if you do this in C/C++ or Java you will need to be very careful about what data type you use to represent your mass/currency in order to avoid overflow errors.    Haskell doesn't have this issue though, so if you know Haskell you won't have to worry about overflow.
