Brute Forece will only get you so far

Since I dont have a strong background in Math or computer science, I've been using the only tool in my belt - Brute Force. Through the first five days, Ive been able to solve about half of the problems. Each day has two parts, sometimes I can solve them both, and sometimes I can only get one of them. Some days I dont solve any. As the days go on, the problems get more difficult. By day 10, I have not been able to get any solutions.. I think we need a brute force only advent. :-)
