You have to solve it without using integer->string conversions (no bruteforce). It wouldn't be 5kyu if it was that easy :P

And could you please not reply to random users' comments? Just raise a question at the top level, where more people can see it.

You could have helped me understand why my function returns 0 but reads 25

How could I? The only code that I could see (because obviously you provided none) is one that passed all tests, and it had no print statements either. So no, I couldn't magically prove that 0 is actually 25.

All I could see is that you're chasing ghosts, just like in the rest of your comment.

Ive chased the logic through my function

Don't chase "logic", chase facts. If you insert print statements everywhere, you'll be able to reason about stuff much easier.

if i remove everything and make the function only return 0 when called, it magically understands what 0 is now

"magically"? Really? There is no magic here, which means that your solution had a bug. Simple as that.

At some point you managed to solve the kata, but you couldn't bother to remove this bogus issue... so I'll do that for you.

Uhm, no you didn't. You just added more fixed tests. Please look up documentation on how to create your first kata.

Anyway, kata is retired, so no need to keep this open.

Duplicate of many vowel manipulation katas.

No random test cases.

• ###### B1tscommented on "Two Sum" kata

Note that you should be very careful with using `delete` while iterating an array. It's very likely to mess things up.

• ###### B1tscommented on "Two Sum" kata

But these are the indexes that you returned (1 and 42). Their sum doesn't match target sum, so, test failed.

... so far!

One of the most painful 6KYU katas I've ever came across..

I'm not sure I understood your question :/ To type `*`, you have to hold the button (`*-`). If you're asking about which buttons are on that sign, it's `'-+=` (shown in diagram). If you have any questions, it would be faster/easier for me to answer on Discord.

What's a layout for a sign '*' (for multiplying).

Random tests have been updated. Thanks for contributing.
