Re: THE project euler thread
 
For the sake of adding to the Project Euler thread, finished 1-10 so far.

Re: THE project euler thread
 

Made it from level 10 to level 12 (50 more problems, or 300 total solved) -- and that's at a nonstop rate. I got a LOT of easy problems knocked out today (including a few brute-forcers that I've been letting run on my desktop while I work on the laptop).

What a rush ;-; Taking a break for now. My brain's frazzled and I feel like I've been a slave to this site for eons now.

Congrats Marcus! I haven't have the time to tackle this lately, but I'll change that in the next few days!

Some of my solutions suck though.

leonid, remember that question with the 2000x2000 matrix thing? I brute-forced it with squaring ;-;

One guy had a hilarious solution to... can't remember which problem, but he brute-forced it in 500+ hours in VBA, lmfao.

why have so few people solved 177? looks pretty easy to me

gonna attempt that next I think

Re: THE project euler thread
 
I've been working on 177 for like a week. It's hard. It was one of those annoying "low-numbered but crazy" problems like 152 that give a lot of trouble and are hard to get out of the way.

Also the inverse phi one was kinda cool.

Done some work on Project Euler, well on my way to level 3 with 53 problems solved.

YEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!

This was such a hard problem, it's not even funny. ;-;

starting this right now, have no idea what to expect

edit: (feeling really stupid but) do you need, like, a computer input type program for this. guh

I haven't started it, but I think you would normally write a program that spits out text into a console and then you copy and paste that as your answer.

You just need any programming language.

I usually use either Python or C++ (mostly Python).

lucked out getting the Perfection badge just in time... this new one is a doozy.

383 looks easy as ****
EDIT: as of 5:29 i have a formula for T5(5^n)
EDIT: as of 5:38 i have a general formula for T5(n)... sorta
EDIT: BAM

the most coding i did was with spreadsheets and i found the answer about 2 hours from starting work on it

Reincarnate 05-10-2012 05:36 PM

Re: The Project Euler thread
 
Haven't even looked at 383 yet... tried 382 for a bit and couldn't solve it, so I took a break, haha.

Reincarnate 05-10-2012 05:44 PM

Re: The Project Euler thread
 
Decided to try 383. Got a working approach for T5(n) very quickly but I don't think it's scalable yet

EDIT: Figured out T5(5^n)
