build iteration macro to remove (),[],{},<>. to leave the unpair one, it will easier to compare with.
part 1: use multiple row to find the first close symbol and sum it.
part 2: sort descending and multiple row to multiply it.

make mistake for both part.
in part 1 forget it mention the incorrect symbol, i calculate for the correct symbol.
in part 2 i using sum instead of Last after the multiply score. take for 30 mins to find the mistake.
thanks @bflick attached the workflow to let me compare the error.

It's been hard to find time for AOC so I'm playing catch up! This was a fun one! It was a relief to see my workflow wouldn't need any rework to do autocompletion versus syntax checking, even though I needed to build upon my previous work.
