how much time do you spend on challenging problems?

Revision en1, by noob_forever, 2019-11-17 07:07:14

so this is something that i think a lot of relatively newcomers struggle with. many times i find myself spending days trying to solve a challenging problems i.e. problems solution of which i am unable to figure out in maybe 30 minutes. Many times it has actually paid off and i actually could solve some problems that i thought impossible for me. So i would like to know others' approach to this issue. when do you say to yourself "okay, maybe i should just check the editorial". how frequently do you use the editorial and how much important is it? I find myself using the editorial or seeing the solution very rarely. i know these stuffs vary and are supposed to vary with different people. but opinions of others will surely help. Thanks for reading. [the tags may be wrong. i don't know about them that much]
