I can't tell what the difference is between the following two sentences:
- I need to get that figured out.
- I need to figure that out.
I heard the first sentence from my friend and he is a native English speaker.
But for me, an English learner, if I want to express the same meaning, I would say it like the second one.
I know the "get" in the first sentence means changing one status into another one.
So it means making that thing be figured out.
However, I think the meaning is the same as the second one.
Could anyone tell me what the difference between them?
