Regarding the "get a hint"

Are we encouraged to look at solutions for problems like in thesealgorithm problems even if we complete? Is there like a counter somewhere for how many times you need hints? i would jus tlike to see how it’s professionally done in case i employed a naive algorithm as a solution.

I believe once you submit a solution (and FCC registers it hopefully), you are free to ask and look up solutions. Once you’ve thought for yourself, I dare say it’s even encouraged to see better solutions, as to help broaden your thinking and approaches.

FCC doesn’t track what buttons you click, how many times your submit, or anything like that. They just track which challenges you have completed.
