Tell us what’s happening:
Hey guys, i find Basic Algorithm Scripting exercises very difficult, i only did Basic JS and Object Oriented and Functional Programming tutorials. Do i need more knowledge from elsewhere to be able to do the Algorithm exercises? the tools for the answers in the exercises used are things that i dont remember learning in the previous courses.
Link to the challenge:
Don’t be discouraged by the fact that the algorithm challenges are hard. They should be hard. It’s not just practice; each challenge is a challenge to learn new skills.
i dont know how to do algorithms im not studying maths or any engineering degrees.
Do you know some tutorials?
An algorithm is just a list of steps you need to do to carry out something. A recipe is a form of algorithm, for example. You don’t need maths or engineering knowledge. What @RandellDawson is saying is write out the steps you need to do this challenge; that’s your algorithm, and then you should be able to use the knowledge you have to inform what the program should do for each of those steps.
