Basically, you code will always return true when 0 and 1 in the right positions, no matter where the other tiles are. Mistakes: You loop not from 0 to d - 1, but from 0 to d - 2 (i < d - 1). Thus,...

### Pset3 Fifteen won function reorders correctly but finished with illegal move, what's wrong?

The following line has serious issues: if(board[i][j] != board[i][j-1] || board[i][j] != board[i+1][j-2]) If j == 0, then it's going to try to check board[i][-1], an invalid tile. This will ...

### Won()- Pset 3- Game of Fifteen

A trick I like to use when debugging indexed ranges (for loops, for example) is to see what happens at the upper and lower bounds of the ranges. A lot of times, the code breaks down there.

### won function does not seem to return true (even though it should)

Why do you loop till j < d - 1 not j < d? For board 3*3, you miss board[0][2] so should return false for board[1][0]. However, I do not understand why you are stack in an infinite loop. You ...

### pset 3 won() function always return false

This won function won't work, imagine what would happen for i == d-1 and j == d-1 on a solved board. counter then would be d*d-1, and board[i][j]!=counter would be 0!=d*d-1, leading to the solved ...
