Coding Challenge

Not a fan of coding challenges, but this one looked interesting. I gave myself 25 minutes to figure it out and it took me about 25 minutes to come up with a solution.

My first couple of attempts where trying to be too clever. I just came to the conclusion that I should be writing it out in a simple way with comments.

The solution gist is not the cleanest but I don’t mind it. May not be the most swifty way of doing this but it’s straightforward to read. You can see where the logic goes and nothing is hidden.
