May I know why in line 75 "int min_length = (compress(row_numbers)).size() - 3;" the min_length should mhinus three? What does the number three mean??

In the example "aserfcvghjiuytedcftyuytre" -> "architecture", we change the keyboard rows 7 times, => a, e, f, c, g, i, c, t.
The idea is, the string to be searched will be at least 8 characters long since the user has left the keyboard row to reach a new key. We are relaxing the rule a bit (3 characters). It is purely a heuristic.
