## Challenge #243: Odd Man Out

8 - Asteroid

Bit of a lengthy workflow for a beginner challenge and my answers were also slightly different.

Answers differ from the ones provided in the workflow. Matches with Blake's though.

12 - Quasar

@AYXAcademy The solution on this workflow does not work, and specific rules have to be followed to get the correct answers (some of which I'm not sure make sense). This may be a weekly challenge to revisit from an administration perspective.

I got the same answers to others but not the same as solution.

16 - Nebula

Ok, so my answers are also a bit different but I think I know why. One of the answers provided is incorrect due to the scale on the decimal places.

I first used my tools to read in the sheet names dynamically, apply the filters to select only the appropriate sheets, then load and smoosh together.
Then it was a simple matter of applying the appropriate filters to remove the unwanted rows, and dynamically renaming from the first row to get the correct column headers.

I then transposed the data, split by female/male then joined back together to create one row per year and country, with the female/male values in separate columns.
Then it was a simple matter of splitting into each question to create the calculations.

Question 1: There are multiple answers here, not just the two provided:

Bolivia (Estado Plurinacional de/ Plurinational State of)
Costa Rica
Ecuador
Panamá
Paraguay
Perú
República Dominicana / Dominican Republic

However, given the question is technically asking for the year, the answer is 2015.

Question 2: The answer provided here is incorrect as the numbers have obviously been truncated prior to this calculation. With full precision, the answer is El Salvador 2035, with a score of 46.645646 compared to the provided 2030 which has a value of 46.645808, which is slightly higher.

Question 3: The wording here is not great and can be interpreted in different ways, however, the answer provided is arrived at by taking the "by 2100" to mean "in 2100".
The answer is:
Bolivia (Estado Plurinacional de/ Plurinational State of)
Cuba
Ecuador
Guatemala
Honduras
Paraguay
Perú

So, yeah, a few issues with it, but the logic is sound.

Come on, Alteryx Gods! Be technically correct. The best kind of correct.

This was a poorly written challenge sadly by Alteryx, and several incorrect answers in the output as well.

But I posted my solution below 🙂
