**NOTES**

For the Pivots metric, a pivot is one execution of a pivot instruction (Q or E). The same instruction may be counted multiple times if it is executed more than once.
To have a Finite Area Cost, a solution must enter a repeating steady state where it continues to produce outputs and where area does not grow larger as it repeats. The Finite Area Cost is then the Cost of the solution.

What do you mean it’s not big enough?
