Re: THE project euler thread
How do I learn this stuff and become a cool programmer like you guys ; _;

Re: THE project euler thread
I'm interested in playing this but I have very little coding experience, haha.

Re: THE project euler thread
Good way to learn imo

If, on the other hand, you just want to learn programming, this is one way of starting out. At least it gives you a goal. Man, I need to find more time to do this. 
Re: THE project euler thread
Thanks OP for giving me something to do with my brain while I'm in between jobs. This is awesome. I'll be programming in MATLAB/Octave. I just did the first two problems as a bit of a warm up and it was a lot of fun.
Problem 1 Problem 2 Had to first write a function to calculate the numbers in the Fibonacci sequence given any input: I then implemented that function in the script file below to find the solution: 
Re: THE project euler thread
Interesting, I actually had to augment the source code in MATLAB in order to do Problem 3.
For some reason MATLAB arbitrarily sets a limit on prime factoring numbers larger than 2^32. Opened up the factor.m and changed it to 2^50, so this solution pretty much became a oneliner. Problem 3 
Re: THE project euler thread
hit a wall with this problem :

Re: THE project euler thread
I'm not gonna use programs. :3
Problem 1: 
Re: THE project euler thread
Upon first glance, that problem looks pretty trivial. But since Rubix is having trouble with it, it must be far from that. LOL
I'll take a crack at it. 
Re: THE project euler thread
After taking a look at the problem, here's what I have so far. (I'm sure you already figured out this much, it's all the obvious stuff.)
Problem 355: I'll edit with more content once I figure out more. BRB FOOD LOL 
Re: THE project euler thread
Sounds like you could just write a script for euler's totient function and then run a for loop or something >.>
Though I'm sure there's a more elegant way of doing it. Also, any way to check answers without registering?

and no you have to register 
Re: THE project euler thread
UGH
okay this problem is seriously impossible tackling it the way I'm doing it unless there's some beautiful optimization trick this is not working 
Re: THE project euler thread
getting close but still off
the way I am tackling it is actually very similar to what you posed above (raising primes to powers) but figuring out where to fix things is tricky 
Re: THE project euler thread
Should 99 be in your sorted mainlist for Co(100)?
I'm thinking about an approach right now, but I haven't come up with anything yet.

Hm somehow it's one off, wtf

Re: THE project euler thread
can anyone find the problem in my earlier list? should equal 1356, not 1355 (according to the problem description)
