We're actively looking for ideas on how to improve Weekly Challenges and would love to hear what you think!Submit Feedback
A solution to last week’s challenge can be found here.
Pumpkins abound, and squirrels are happy. It’s that time of the year! Halloween is in just a few days, and you need to get candy for trick-or-treaters.
This Halloween dataset contains 85 types of candy. Take a closer look at the columns:
- sugar percentage - The percentile of sugar it falls under within the data set.
- price percentage - The unit price percentile compared to the rest of the set.
- favorite percentage - The overall win percentage according to 269,000 matchups.
Your house is going to be a hit if your candy basket includes the following:
- The 5 candies with the lowest “sugar percentage”. An average trick or treater consumes 7,000 calories worth of candy, so you want to offer some healthy options.
- The 5 candies with the highest “favorite percentage”. Your neighbors know you are a people pleaser!
- The 5 candies with the lowest “price percentage”. The giant tarantula inflatables you bought weren’t cheap, so you need to save some money on the treats.
And no peanut or almond candies.
The teal pumpkins at your front door communicate that your candy basked is allergy-friendly. (Did you know that’s a “thing”?)
Make sure to filter out all candies that are not allergy friendly first.
Among the 85 types of candy from the dataset, what are the 15 candies to have in your basket?
I did not know there were even "teal" pumpkins, let alone that they help prevent allergic reactions. Very cool!
Glad this Weekly Challenge was a treat and not a trick! 🍬
