Re: The Project Euler thread

started this a little while ago (i think registered years ago lol, but never solved anything til just recently), a few days of work and i'm at lvl 2.
probably wont solve much for a couple weeks because finals but some of these are pretty interesting.

Re: The Project Euler thread

Just stumbled across this thread. I have 38 problems solved. I learned a bit of python for these problems. My problem is that I can often see an easy, brute force solution, but I don't have the math knowhow to get stuff solved in less than a few weeks (or at least such math isn't that intuitive to me). I think it's time to revisit these torturous problems.

Practice makes perfect -- the more you solve, the more you'll learn

Re: The Project Euler thread

So which keywords make python read from a text file? My eyes are buggy from looking though online reference stuff and there's several problems that require it..

Re: The Project Euler thread

You will want to use:

Code:

```file = open('/path/to/file') file.read()      # Returns whole file. file.readline()  # Will return line by line. file.readlines()  # Returns a list of every line. file.close()      # Close the file after you have read everything you need.```

Re: The Project Euler thread

just did 96 which was cool since i never really used recursion in a way that was non-trivial before
no idea how you guys do some of the higher numbered ones, highest one i did was 243, which for some reason is many times easier than everything around it, didnt even write any code.

edit: got to lvl 3 :)

Re: The Project Euler thread

brute forced 407 lol
never saw that box at the bottom right before, is that new? or does it pop up when you solve something recent?

Re: The Project Euler thread

i should get back to solve rest of the problems

Re: The Project Euler thread

This is pretty awesome I'm giving some of these a go

Re: The Project Euler thread

411 wasn't too bad -- pretty much an exercise in programming

Re: The Project Euler thread

415... only 3 solvers after 7 and a half hours.

Yeah I can pretty much kiss my 100% goodbye

It's been fun, PE :(

Just as a note to people who want to join Project Euler: this solution is not necessarily representative of what you will be doing.

Here are some of my crude notes for problem 1, that used logic in stead of programming:

Re: The Project Euler thread

@Reincarnate use code tag

Code:

```while 1:   print "INDENT"   if "INDENT":     print "MORE INDENT" print "NEVER REACHES HERE"```

Re: The Project Euler thread

Maybe ill try to play around and do some more problems this weekend :) (I haven't touched PE in awhile) . gotta start on my take-home test and other school stuff first though xP

Re: The Project Euler thread

Started doing this in my free time again :3 Just got problem 34 this morning. Problem and code below; any tips that can make me a better programmer or mathematician is greatly appreciated :P

problem:

solution: (in Java)

EDIT: cool, got another :3

Problem:

Solution:

Learned some jython, and these are all much easier

Re: The Project Euler thread

I'm currently on my lunch break, so I decided that instead of studying for my ethernet and osi model exam tomorrow, I'd delve into powershell.

Had a bit of an issue getting custom scripts to work without having digital signatures, but oh well.

this feels very reminiscent of java and maybe you DuDeZ will stop hating me because I'm not using BASIC

maybe ???

edit: problem two solved, I was originally incrementing my variables one number at a time but I quickly realized that this would need a variable for every number in the sequence lol
