Re: Problem 719

You'll smack your forehead when you find the missing 10100. Just remember that zeros can be addends.

Problem 710

Problem 710 (View Problem)
If palindrome elements have more than one digit, can they occupy the center of a tuple, for example, (2,16,2) could be a twopal for 20? What about (4,12,4)? Would that be a twopal? What about (20)?

Re: Errors/Warnings/Bugs

In https://projecteuler.net/problem=550 third line (first bullet line) "less then" should of course be "less than". I wouldn't even mention it, but your site seems fastidious in correcting these minor typos when discovered. Which I really appreciate after reading so many internet articles with every...

Re: Problem 420

These look correct.
The trace of the missing one is 26.
Good luck!

Re: Short names to separate '4n+1' primes from the '4n-1's?

In http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_prime_numbers,
it appears that 4n+1 primes are Pythagorean prime and 4n+3 are Gaussian primes.
I have no idea how popular these names are.

Re: Problem 268

Again, I mean no personal disrespect, Diadem. Your viewpoint is at least as valid as (greater than than or equal to) mine. I personally agree more with stijn263/henk263 and TripleM, and joined this great Project with that in mind. I certainly appreciate the more direct approach of coursework and ask...

Re: Need more easier problems

I've being doing these for years now, and still have 80 to go. Once I had less than 20 to go. All with U.S. High School math (1960s vintage) plus self taught via internet and library since retirement. So, I can attest at least half of these are not TOO HARD, or this old man could not have done them....

Re: Number of problems and levels

When we solve 300 we will be enlightened and recognize the objects in a higher plane of existence? :)
To the rest it will appear as {} the empty set.
That is my current fantasy, not a proposal!

Re: Problem 268

I would be disappointed, actually, to see Diadem's question answered here. One of the original attractions to Project Euler, for me at least, is at the bottom of the Problems page: NOTE: Please do not contact Project Euler if you are unable to solve a particular problem. If you can't solve it, then ...

Re: Python libraries for number theory

Do a search for ent.py (ent = elementary number theory), SAGE (free math system that you can download or use on-line, created by Dr. William Stein, who earlier developed ent.py routines.) You can also search for Python cookbook. Kirby Urner wrote some useful routines that can be found on-line. One I...

Re: Problem 206

Maybe test with squares not square roots, as the latter may not resolve exactly to integers in some instances.

Re: Problem 23 - incorrect info?

My vote is to leave it as is. Its one of the many notes to self I've made to explore after I solve all the other problems, as to why analysis can't (or didn't so far) lower the bound. I am fascinated by what can be brute forced and what can be analyzed, and while working many of Project Euler's puzz...
