I'm closing as nobody else mentioned crashing tests ever since.

This kata confuses me a lot. Why is it forcing us to not use if statements to solve this problem? Using switch...case function throws out an error to the compiler which is not a best practice and shouldn't teach beginners to do it like that.

Haha why would this answer be on here if it's not a solution?

??? returning reference to stack variable ???

This function is not an error handler nor is it designed to scale.

This is neither clever, nor good practice. It might work for the given problem but every addition to this code will break it or force the person to rewrite it the normal way. -rep

Ok now.

Neat, didn't know you could do that - read the docs!

• ###### kclaw99commented on "Triple trouble" kata

Hey John, funny I came on here as I noticed some of the solutions didn't account for when the triple and the double are different, and I see you already caught it. Nice solution by the way.

• ###### Chrono79commented on "Triple trouble" kata

Test cases (that aren't the sample ones) are only editable in Ruby right now (the others are locked). But nice catch.

• ###### johncoleman83commented on "Prime reversion" kata

I am noticing this same problem with python kata. I am passing the 4 examples and all basic tests:

``````Test.assert_equals(solve(0,20),14)
Test.assert_equals(solve(2,200),457)
Test.assert_equals(solve(2,2000),17705)
Test.assert_equals(solve(2000,5000),25005)
``````

And, passing about 4 - 8 random tests. However other random tests between ranges of about `500 - 1000`, I am failing. There are no timeout issues, my algorithm simply returns the wrong number of primes. Strange how I'm passing some tests yet failing others despite their ranges being within the same numbers?

UPDATE: I ended up passing this one, without changing my code, similar to the above user, Cptnprice.

• ###### johncoleman83created a suggestion for "Triple trouble" kata

I suggest adding a test that has different repeated numbers for both input cases.

For example:

``````num1 = 9875222143465
num2 = 24236884
``````
• the repeats are `222` and `88`
• Should return `0`.
• My code would have returned `1` had such a case existed.

I don't believe these cases exists because I built code to return `True` (i.e. `1`) for these cases, and didn't realize it was wrong until my code passed all tests, I submitted it, and saw the other solutions didn't account for such cases.
