### Re: Errors/Warnings/Bugs

Hi, I am having trouble opening the thread for Problem 497. Chrome would load a few posts but when I scrolled down further, it became just a blank screen. Maths formulas were not rendered and code sections would not open. Thank you for reporting this. I cannot load the thread either: the Chrome tab...

### Re: Problem 059

Hi! I also have trouble in getting "an OK - problem solved" although I'm like TristenR am pretty sure I've solved it. However, counting up the entries in the original file - I only get 1454... which is contrary to TristenRs 1455. What is the correct number here (in the original text file)? Thanks i...

### Re: Problem 207

...where $4^t$, $2^t$, and $k$ are all positive integers and $t$ is a real number. For any m ≥ 1 let P(m) be the proportion of such partitions that are perfect with k ≤ m . So there are two partitions, $4^1 = 2^1 + 2$ and $4^{1.5849625...} = 2^{1.5849625...} + 6$ with $k\le 6$, only one of which ha...

### Re: Problem 701

701 "Consider the maximum area of connected cells." Nowhere is "maximum area" defined. It's just the literal meaning. The largest possible area of a connected set of (black) cells. Wouldn't the largest possible area be W x H, i.e. the given square with every square a black square? That is one possi...

Nowhere is "maximum area" defined.

I'm saying that you would not expect a pattern for e, so it is surprising that there is one.

### Re: problem 065

In the problem statement it lists 2k as one of the components of the continued fraction, but nowhere is it stated what k is. Help? It is just there to indicate that the pattern shown in the first numbers continues. It shows what an arbitrary section of the list would look like. Here are some other ...

### Re: Problem 027

If you'd care to elaborate on such a simple relationship @ PE.net, I would sure appreciate it, as I imagine Lucas-C would too... Take a look at hk's post on the first page of the problem's discussion forum. It shows the relationship between two solutions. If you plot all the related solutions (i.e....

### Re: Problem 027

All the solutions on a parabola are related to each other in a very simple way. Given that the solution to the problem lies on such a parabola, it would be a spoiler to discuss it too much.

### Re: Problem 601

I disagree. $k$ is essentially the length of the streak, i.e. how many consecutive lines in the two examples have divisibility before the line where it is no longer divisible. Like a lucky streak, it is about how long you can keep it going before your luck runs out. The divisibility by 1 is part of ...

### Re: Problem 689

Thanks for the clarification. I'm still worried that f(x) may not be clearly defined. For example, the decimal fraction 1/2 has two binary representations: 0.1000... and 0.0111.... And those lead to f(1/2) = f(0.1000.. (base 2) ) = 1, and f(1/2) = f(0.0111.. (base 2) ) = π 2 /6 - 1. While these are...

We cannot make two consecutive posts in the same solution forum. I think you should be able to edit your post and add the content in the same post. I think you misunderstood the problem. The post is not shown in the problem thread so it cannot be edited. Hopefully it is just a caching problem that ...

### Re: Problem 672

Thanks for fixing that hk. Shouldn't there be a floor function around the $\frac{7^K-1}{11}$ term? I don't think there is a universally accepted meaning for a sum where the upper limit for the index variable is not an integer. Please investigate if $\frac{7^K-1}{11}$ isn't an integer for the values ...

Is "no nothing" a typo for "do nothing"?

I have not solved this question yet, but have worked out F_4(3) on paper. @amagri: I believe those are indeed forbidden, so for both those reasons you cannot use a 1x3 tile when n=3. @MuthuVeerappanR: I think rotations around the axis of the loop are not considered different.

I know that quite some folk have solved this one already and it doesn't look too daunting, really - except that: well I'm getting 186 and not 184 as result for F_3(100). It really is 184. If you want, you can send me the pairs (A,B) that make up the sum by private message (you should have only four...
