How many people thought from 1 to 8 should visit both 4 and 5?

  • 15

    I kept failing on test case 2,2
    I drew the picture on a paper and thought the answer should be (3+5)*4 + 8 = 40. But the answer 56..

    I tried several times and then started to wonder if I am stupid, or my parents are siblings.

    I bought a new android phone to ACTUALLY test it.

    Somehow I realized, based on the description, Android has a sufficiently advanced technology which provides you a directly path from 1 - 8..without touching 4 and 5....


    Good luck guys, I am trying to return this phone and get refund.

    The example diagrams are misleading. Each digit should be a dot, not a box.

    Thanks Reboot329 !!! I was driven crazy by the test case (1,2 ) as well, as I thought it is very straightforward. Just each grid to its neighboring ones. Turns out it is not.
