-Filler text- your entry goes here; remove ​this line to receive ​full credit.+This week's project (PCT0) was a good exercise of the good old logical aspect that I'm used to from classes such as this one. I wouldn'​t say it was easy, but it certainly wasn't that difficult. With enough time, it was definitely doable. However, I've never been particularly good at documenting my exact process, which is unfortunately going to make up the bulk of the grade. ​ My paper was pretty much full of random operations I did to figure it out in no particular order, so I ended up having to rewrite the entire process with instructions written on the side in order. I even ended up using systems of equations to solve for two variables, which was an amazing stroke of luck in my view. I first solved for one and zero, which is extremely useful throughout the process because it allows for one to check other digits to see if they one away from another, and if a larger digit needs to "​borrow"​ 10 from the digit on its left when doing subtraction. Looking for patterns in subtraction,​ along with the multiplication to find factors, made up the bulk of my solution. I was unable to complete the bonus on time, but it did see to be a good way of testing the logic that software developers need regularly. Using arithmetic and finding patterns is surprisingly useful when looking for solutions to problems has proven to be surprisingly useful in the field, and although it's difficult, I find the challenge that goes along with it to be very motivating.
