For mastering this challenge you need to understand the following things:

I get the same questions over and over again, which is not a bad thing, but I want to give an answer here. Beginners always send me questions on what small projects they should do to learn fundamentals of a programming language. So I will create a little section here, with small challenges, you can try yourself to learn the basics of any programming language instead of just printing out “Hello World” to the screen.
Oh man, this is hard, we are at part 4 and haven’t seen anything. This sucks. Let’s change it!
