I have been practicing algorithms on coding sites like codewars and started to encounter algorithms that are mathematical like math symbols on some questions from changing to binary bits or Pascal triangle (mostly the kyu 4-5 questions) and I am unsure how to approach them better.
Aside from questions that involve arithmetic operations, I find myself limited in solving questions that are math intuitive and have difficulty understanding the question. My level of maths is algebra 1 ish as I haven’t touched maths for almost 8 years.
For anyone who struggles with the mathetical algorithm, problem sets what would your approach be when encountering such a problem? also, would it be practical to actually pick up maths again from algebra 1 to maybe calculus level?
I did consider picking up maths again. Personally i do not hate maths , but i struggle to find the time commitment for it. I feel if i wanna learn maths i need like 6 months commitment minimum and have to push in time for it aside from practicing coding itself which dosent seem practical.
Hope to seek some advice !
