I have coded it but I think my code takes much more time.

Can any one of you please suggest a much more optimized code/algorithm for the above problem

{class CandidateCode
public static String JudgementDay(int input1,int input2)
//Write code here

long r=3;//initial number of robots
long ma=1;//initial number of molecular assemblers
long pm=0;//initial units of programmable matter

long newr;//variable to store new number of robots
long newma;//variable to store new number of molecular assemblers
long newpm;//variable to store new units of programmable matter

long modu=1000000007;//modulus

for(int i=1;i<=input1;i++)
for(int j=1;j<=input2;j++)
//this loop will get executed n times where n is the judgement day(from //day 1 to day n)
newr=r+3*pm;//calculating new number of robots
newma=r+2*pm;//calculating new number of molecular assemblers
newpm=5*ma;//calculating new unit of programmable matter


String str=""+r+"#"+ma+"#"+pm;
return str;

If this is an actual interview question the interviewer needs to be fired! Seriously.
