Simple hint for ChatGPT to solve complex problems

You can give ChatGPT a hint to solve complex problems.

The screenshot below shows side-by-side the before and after improvements in the solution for a complex story problem.

I am using the "Plan out the solution prior to answering." trick from yesterday's post along with today's hint, "Solve for only one person at a time," to ChatGPT regarding how to solve the problem.

This type of hint works for several things, from solving complex story problems like this to hinting at how to write a document to how to write a complex piece of code.
