M items are to be delivered in a circle of size N. Find the position where the M-th item will be delivered if we start from a given position K. Note that items are distributed at adjacent positions starting from K.

 

Example 1:

Input:
N = 5, M = 2, K = 1
Output:
2
Explanation:
If we start from 1st position, the
2nd item will land at the 2nd position.

Example 2:

Input:
N = 5, M = 8, K = 2
Output:
4
Explanation:
If we start from 2nd position, the
8th item will land at the 4th position.

 

Your Task:
You don't need to read input or print anything. Your task is to complete the function findPosition() which takes 3 Integers N,M and K as input and returns the answer.

 

Expected Time Complexity: O(1)
Expected Auxiliary Space: O(1)

 

Constraints:
1 <= N,M,K <= 105
