Part 1: Given 4 rooms full of amphipods with various energy costs for movement (a=1, b=10, c=100, d=1000) and a hallway, how much energy does it take (at minimum) to sort the amphipods into their own rooms with the following conditions:

Part 1: You will be given a series of Scanners, each of which will tell you the location (from their point of view) of a series of Beacons.

AoC 2021 Day 17: Pew-Pewinator

Source: Trick Shot

Part 1: Simulate a projectile with an integer initial velocity (x, y), air resistance that tries to reduce x-velocity to 0, and gravity that increases y-velocity by 1 each time. Given a target range, find the highest point reached by a projectile that ends a tick (not one that crosses over) within the target area.
