Intermediate results

  • Appeared intuitive understanding of algorithms.
  • In most cases, one hour is not enough to solve the problem.

If you start sketching an intuitive algorithm, then in the process comes an understanding and an improved solution.

Update plan by solution:

  • After reading, if there is no exact solution:
  1. Assume/analyze/draw the proposed algorithm
  2. View solutions with explanations
  3. Compare with your own / analyze
  4. Code
