I'm interested in playing this but I have very little coding experience, haha.

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: Last edited by foilman8805; 10232011 at 03:14 AM..

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
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?

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 Last edited by Reincarnate; 10232011 at 03:31 PM..

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.

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