Advent of Code 2020: Python Solution Day 11

qviper profile image Viper ・2 min read

I took a help from here so huge credit goes to the author. My repository contains a notebook where I have updated previous day's challenges also.

My solution is below lets share yours.

Challenge 1

with open("day11.txt", "r") as fp:
    lines = [line.rstrip() for line in fp.readlines()]
    lines = [list(line) for line in lines]

rows, cols = len(lines), len(lines[0])
deltas = [(-1,-1),(-1,0),(-1,1),(0,-1),(0,1),(1,-1),(1,0),(1,1)]

def count_occupied(r, c, grid):
    count=0
    for i,j in deltas:
        xi,xj=r+i,c+j
        if 0<=xi<rows and 0<=xj<cols and grid[xi][xj]=='#':
            count+=1
    return count


def check_occupied(lines, thresh = 4):
    while True:
        valid = True
        temp_grid=[r.copy() for r in lines]
        for i, r in enumerate(temp_grid):
            for j, c in enumerate(r):
                count = count_occupied(i, j, temp_grid)
                if c=='L' and count==0:
                    lines[i][j]='#'
                elif c=='#' and count>=thresh:
                    lines[i][j]='L'
                valid&=(r[j]==lines[i][j])
        if valid:
            break
    ans=0
    for i in range(rows):
        for j in range(cols):
            if lines[i][j]=='#':
                ans+=1
    print(f"There are {ans} valid seats.")
check_occupied(lines)
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Challenge 2

with open("day11.txt", "r") as fp:
    lines = [line.rstrip() for line in fp.readlines()]
    lines = [list(line) for line in lines]

def count_occupied2(r, c, grid):
    count=0
    for i,j in deltas:
        xi,xj=r+i,c+j
        while 0<=xi<rows and 0<=xj<cols:
            if grid[xi][xj]=='#':
                count+=1
                break
            elif grid[xi][xj] == 'L':
                break
            xi+=i
            xj+=j
    return count

def check_occupied2(lines, thresh = 5):
    while True:
        valid = True
        temp_grid=[r.copy() for r in lines]
        for i, r in enumerate(temp_grid):
            for j, c in enumerate(r):
                count = count_occupied2(i, j, temp_grid)
                if c=='L' and count==0:

                elif c=='#' and count>=thresh:
                    lines[i][j]='L'
                valid&=(r[j]==lines[i][j])
        if valid:
            break
    ans=0
    for i in range(rows):
        for j in range(cols):
            if lines[i][j]=='#':
                ans+=1
    print(f"There are {ans} valid seats.")
check_occupied2(lines)
