## FirstFrostByte 2 years ago Can someone explain what there asking for? Read below: Count the number of runs in the sample. A run is a group of letters that are the same. A run can be as small as one. The example RBGGYYGBB has six runs. This isn't really a question I just want to know what do they want? Like how to figure out what is a "Run".

1. TranceNova

A"run" is usually like a "try" or an "event". In this case they mean a "run" is where there are two consecutive numbers that are the same. So in RBGGYYGBB, there are six runs - [1]R [2]B [3]GG [4]YY [5]G [6]BB That make sense? :)

2. FirstFrostByte

I should have know. The teachers instructions are so confusing thanks for helping me out.

3. TranceNova

No worries, yeah sometimes things can be confusing :)

@TranceNova what if there was some thing like BBBORRBGY Would it be [1]BB [2]B [3]RR [4]B [5]G [6]Y Or would it be [1]BBB [2]RR [3]B [4]G [5]Y

5. TranceNova

Because they said "group" it would be the second one :) (5)
