Re: The Project Euler thread
I'm working on 383 too. I got a formula for f5(n!) but nothing for T5(n) yet :(

Re: The Project Euler thread
Just gotta knock back 382 and that's that
Not really a fan of recurrencerelation problems but meh 
Re: The Project Euler thread
Weeee, got it  100% again

Re: The Project Euler thread
390 should be ok, but I am fearing 391. it's likely going to be brutal

Re: The Project Euler thread
I've got a program that will solve for M(n) but is not scalable to higher levels
You know it's a tough problem when very few of the usual heavy hitters have solved it, even 24 hours after its release. 
Re: The Project Euler thread
391 solved, back to 100%. That one was tricky.

Re: The Project Euler thread
Until 392..

Re: The Project Euler thread
So I'm teaching myself BASIC and I figure that this would be a good way to learn
Unfortunately, I can't even solve problem 1 because I'm a dumb shit rofl (I could solve on paper, but that'd take forever) There's something wrong with my code. Don't hate, I haven't touched a programming language since high school (so 2008) Some info regarding my code: The a$ was a variable I used to make the code stop during the first ifthen statement. It originally looked like this: Code:
print "Count = "; count 
Re: The Project Euler thread
Shit, I think I know what's wrong with my code. 2 mod 3 would end being 0. So it's adding to addNumber before it should be.

Re: The Project Euler thread
2 mod 3 is 2
(x mod y is the remainder of x / y) PS use Python instead, it's cooler Damn thing doesn't save formatting but w/e 
Re: The Project Euler thread
I am obviously retarded, because I'm still stuck on problem 1. I mirrored that code into BASIC (took me a bit to figure out while loops), and now I'm getting a huge number, literally twice as large as my original code. I downloaded Python though, let's see how that goes.
ugh I can't wait to go back to school rofl edit: python's gay, going back to BASIC 
Re: The Project Euler thread
ur gay

Re: The Project Euler thread
thank you for your help
edit: Took a break from problem 1 and went onto a random problem under 10. Solved 6 after a bit of trouble, I was finding the difference for the first 1000 natural numbers and not 100. Whoops. 
Re: The Project Euler thread
What is your current code for problem 1
and seriously stop using BASIC, aaaaoooogugughghhh 
Re: The Project Euler thread
whats wrong with basic rofl, I download python 2.whatever and wanted to kill the lady making my chai latte.
I'll post my code tonight after I mess with it a bit. 
Re: The Project Euler thread
I actually never touched my code that night...
i touched myself................. 
Re: The Project Euler thread
Anyone else still playing any?
Eagerly awaiting #402 
Re: The Project Euler thread
i started on tuesday. i've got 17 correct answers so far, but i only know a semester's worth of python haha. the problems are starting to get out of my threshold
my account name is lpauley if you can do anything with it
