I answered exercise 5 this way.  Is there a problem doing it this way, other than into_iter() is, I believe more flexible with scope, and is probably overkill in this case.

fn main() {
    let nums: Vec<u32> = (1..11).collect();


    for _ in 1..3 {
        for i in nums.clone().into_iter().map(|i| 2 * i ) {
            println!("{}", i);
        }
    }
}

Thanks,

Mitch

Mitch is looking at Exercise 5 in Chapter 5 of the Rust Crash Course, available here: https://www.snoyman.com/blog/2018/11/rust-crash-course-05-rule-of-three/

There's one additional problem with this approach to the exercise: it creates a relatively expensive clone of the `Vec<u32>`, which isn't necessary here. Instead, it's possible to implement a solution that involves no cloning. (I'm trying to avoid revealing the solution, but if you're stuck, just ask.)
