Higher quality responses from ChatGPT

You can acquire significantly higher quality responses for complex tasks from ChatGPT by simply adding "Plan out the solution prior to generating <code/solution>" to the end of the prompt.

The screenshot shows an in-depth solution to the problem using this technique. A portion of the code was truncated because of the length.

Further down in the post I have an image of the response from ChatGPT without this "Plan out..." guidance. You will notice this solution is of lower quality and misses some of requirements.

Same question without the "Plan out the solution prior to generating <code/solution>" line. Note the poor quality relatively speaking.
