Advent of Code 2023 - Day 6

Much easier than day 5. Day 5 was terrifying!

I solved DAy 6 Part 2 the brute force way and while it ran I fixed up the logic so that some simple math would speed things up drastically. I found the answer way before my first attempt even got close which I found entertaining. This is something someone had mentioned on one of threads. While you let your brute force attempt run, work on the puzzle and you might solve it much faster.

I really enjoy the community aspect of AOC and reading the subreddit. Commiserating with others over the difficulty is actually quite fun.

Day 6 Answer

I'm also now at 11 stars which matches my previous record, so any stars now will be gravy!
