However the advice is still valid: Test Suites should include at least four test cases — although more are often necessary to prevent hard-coded workarounds. on 8 Jul 2018 on 8 Jul 2018 on 8 Jul 2018 on 8 Jul 2018 on 8 Jul 2018 on 8 Jul 2018 on 7 Jul 2018 on 7 Jul 2018 on 7 Jul 2018 on 7 Jul 2018 on 7 Jul 2018 on 7 Jul 2018 on 7 Jul 2018 Agree with John D'Errico that the Problem Statement is ambiguous. For the record, based on case 5 of the Test Suite, it must be the _observed_ number of red balls that is to be computed. on 7 Jul 2018 on 6 Jul 2018 Also, Problem Statement is inconsistent with Test Suite (and Solution Template). It should say: "Create a function that subtracts b from a" (not "a from b"). on 6 Jul 2018 Too many clues are given in the Solution Template. on 6 Jul 2018 on 6 Jul 2018 on 6 Jul 2018 David Verrelli submitted a Comment to Solution 1396533 Cf, Problem 337. on 5 Jul 2018 Hi, goc3. Nice problem. I have one piece of feedback. I anticipated in a "Cody5:Hard" problem that the pentagon & circle couldn't be assumed to have the same centre if it weren't stated in the problem, but roughly they do seem to share a centre in the present Test Suite. If that is the case, then I suggest either explicitly mentioning it in the Problem Statement, or else adding more test cases where the shapes don't share a centre. An example of the latter would be a tiny circle centred midway along one of the edges of a large pentagon (correct answer 2, but would probably be misclassified if centres assumed equal). Regards, DIV on 5 Jul 2018 on 5 Jul 2018 on 5 Jul 2018 on 5 Jul 2018 on 5 Jul 2018 on 5 Jul 2018 on 5 Jul 2018 on 5 Jul 2018 No challenge if players can just COPY-AND-PASTE the formula from the Problem Statement! There should also be more test cases (minimum of four). on 5 Jul 2018 on 5 Jul 2018 on 5 Jul 2018 on 5 Jul 2018 on 5 Jul 2018 on 5 Jul 2018 on 5 Jul 2018 on 5 Jul 2018 The phrasing of the Problem Statement is not correct. The string "When you finish ..., you will be told .... You can then .... You can also ...." contains FOUR instances of the WORD "you". "You", "YOU" and "you" are all examples of the _word_ "you". The Problem Statement should say that the player must find occurrences of the provided text-pattern of the same case within the given text. on 5 Jul 2018
