Use the substitution approach when faced with difficult problems.
Sometimes, it is difficult to find a solution to a problem. When this happens, instead of wasting time and energy on the target problem, find an easier, related heuristic problem to solve. The word “heuristic” refers to a simple procedure that helps find adequate solutions to difficult problems. This process is known as substitution.
