So a quick question regarding the increased candy if the neighboring kids and lower ratings.
Assuming we have a set of children like this:
Current Index || \/ [ 0, 2, 1]
In this case would the child be receiving 1 or 2 pieces of candy? Technically the child has a higher rating than their neighbors, however since it's larger than either neighbor and one of the neighbors is larger than the other, I'm assuming 2, however I can see 1 being the correct answer as well.
I want to avoid spoiling the solution for myself, so I figured I would ask here exactly what they meant as far as how ratings and their neighbors affect the total amount of candy that's supposed to be given out. Thanks!
