Solve a sample question:

Q: N numbers (1 to N) are arranged in a circular fashion. Starting from kth(less than N), every second number is eliminated from the circle. You need to determine the xth(less than N) number which is removed.

Small Case, N=1000, x=555, k=888.

Large case, N=999999999, x=55555, k=88888888
