# Army Game

Luke is daydreaming in Math class. He has a sheet of graph paper with rows and columns, and he imagines that there is an army base in each cell for a total of bases. He wants to drop supplies at strategic points on the sheet, marking each drop point with a red dot. If a base contains at least one package inside or on top of its border fence, then it's considered to be supplied. For example:

Given and , what's the minimum number of packages that Luke must drop to supply all of his bases?

**Example**

Packages can be dropped at the corner between cells (0, 0), (0, 1), (1, 0) and (1, 1) to supply bases. Another package can be dropped at a border between (0, 2) and (1, 2). This supplies all bases using packages.

**Function Description**

Complete the *gameWithCells* function in the editor below.

*gameWithCells* has the following parameters:

*int n:*the number of rows in the game*int m:*the number of columns in the game

**Returns**

*int:*the minimum number of packages required

**Input Format**

Two space-separated integers describing the respective values of and .

**Constraints**

**Sample Input 0**

```
2 2
```

**Sample Output 0**

```
1
```

**Explanation 0**

Luke has four bases in a grid. If he drops a single package where the walls of all four bases intersect, then those four cells can access the package:

Because he managed to supply all four bases with a single supply drop, we print as our answer.
