Hello there fellow mathletes! I just need some feedback on this topic.
Alright so when it comes to combinatorics, I am downright terrible. By that, I mean that I end up doing almost every problem just with logic and reasoning, which usually takes a very long time and is very prone to error. Whenever I check the solutions, I always see many people solving the problems with quick and nifty techniques like properly applying a binomial coefficient to solve the problem, or using some fancy technique to solve a probability problem.
My question is, how do/would you go about getting better at combinatorics? Would you just keep going at those problems?
Thank you very much!
