Problem 54780. Trap a knight
my solution (using brute force) is giving the right answer (on the test cases I checked) but it's failing in Cody due to time constraints. I hate it when it does that.
in test case - 5, tic-toc is giving me 5s. I might be able to optimize the code a little more but I am not sure that would be enough. I think it's failing on the loop test cases due to runtime.
is it necessary to use loop cases as they tend to take a long time? why not just random settings?
Any hints as how I can speed up my code? Am a missing some pattern? Seems like brute force is the way to go.
If you are missing a pattern, then I am too. The solutions so far (including mine) use brute force. Is SORT the problem?
