Think through the logic on paper first -- how would you check for a win if you were doing this on paper and without a computer since the solution would fall out of this.
A couple of considerations:
- Consider just checking for correct number/position first, meaning check only if position i == guess i before checking any positions for correct number but incorrect position.
- Consider setting a match to some placeholder value. For instance if any numbers match, consider changing them to -1 (but then don't allow matching -1's to be valid) so you know not to use that guess and that answer's number again.
