Not every problem can be done with pencil and paper.

Rubix sent me to solve this A bit of paperwork and then lots of wolframalpha

Nicely done

Re: The Project Euler thread
sorry I should've been more clear
I was referring to problem nine specifically, involving pythagorean triples

Re: The Project Euler thread
brute forcing 12 and it's not going so well. I'm almost an hour in and still no solution.
Code:
The sequence of triangle numbers is generated by adding the natural numbers. So the 7th triangle number would be 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 = 28. The first ten terms would be: 1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21, 28, 36, 45, 55, ... Let us list the factors of the first seven triangle numbers: 1: 1 3: 1,3 6: 1,2,3,6 10: 1,2,5,10 15: 1,3,5,15 21: 1,3,7,21 28: 1,2,4,7,14,28 We can see that 28 is the first triangle number to have over five divisors. What is the value of the first triangle number to have over five hundred divisors?

Re: The Project Euler thread
using brute force = not very interesting
usually more fun to try for the faster approaches

Re: The Project Euler thread
I'm sure there's a very elegant mathematical solution for all of these, but I'm just trying to get as far as I can :P

Re: The Project Euler thread
I did the first 30 (excluding 12) and even a couple of the 300+ ones before I figured out 12. I don't know why but that one was hard for me

Re: The Project Euler thread
Probably since there are so many different things you need to account for in 12. Not only do you need a gigantic 500+ factor number, but it also needs to be a summation of n number which is tricky to check for.

Re: The Project Euler thread
My brute force of 12 took 15 seconds to run.

Re: The Project Euler thread
does project euler ever teach you algorithms, e.x. dynamic programming, breadth/depth first search

Re: The Project Euler thread
Project Euler doesn't directly 'teach' you anything.

Re: The Project Euler thread
It's basically algorithm development, and if dynamic programming, breadth/depth first search is required for efficiency sake, then yes.
Also, rewrote my factorization algorithm and I solved 12 in 5 seconds :P

For example, try your hand at any of these:

And of course, (some) of the big kahunas that will require both mathematical and programmatical sorcery:

ohhhh the eulerian circle one looks cool
really tempted to try that one lol
