- [Instructor] Hello and welcome…to the third problem of the Code Clinic series.…This challenge is a computer science classic.…The eight queens.…It's an excellent example of the use of recursion,…subroutines, loops and functions…rather than using one large monolithic set of instructions.…In addition because this is a classic problem…proposed in 1848 it's already been solved…for almost every programing language ever created…and as a result is a way to compare…the advantages and disadvantages of many approaches.…
The problem is simple,…start with a standard chess board and eight queens.…Place the eight queens on the board…so that no queens can attack each other.…If you've never played chess…you'll need to understand that a queen can attack…by moving an unlimited number of spaces…horizontally, vertically or diagonally.…This means that no two queens…can share a column, row or diagonal line.…For the eight queens problem there are 92 solutions.…
In the following videos our authors will show you…how they approach the problem,…
