Re: Problem 008

This seems to leave you with at least two choices if you want to continue enjoying solving problems on Project Euler. i.e.: A. Continue learning how to use the C programming language. Many other participants have already succeeded solving those problems using that language. B. Start learning some ot...

Re: Problem 173 & 174

The example simply shows you two different ways (not ONE unique way) which would produce a square lamina as defined, using 32 square tiles. Those two would be part of the 41 different hollow laminea you could produce when you use any quantity of square tiles up to 100 in Problem 173.

Steve N If your 'long' is a 64-bit float, have a look at this previous post on page 2 of this thread (http://projecteuler.chat/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=1111&start=15#p10571) and also at japp's post at the very top of the same page.

Re: LinkedIn integration

It would be nice to be able to post level and/or other badges as certification PE cannot certify anything. There are too many on-line sites where one can get answers to PE problems and PE has no means to verify the honesty of those entering answers. YOU are the only one who really knows what you ma...

Re: post solution

how or where do I post a private thread or a new thread? This all depends on the subject you want to cover in such a thread. If related to a specific PE problem: - You cannot start any new thread on the main PE site; you can only post in the existing problem thread after you have solved the problem...

If you use Windows calculator, your numbers would yield 0.49999999999999999475168631829448.

I'm aware that under Windows one should push the registers ebx/edi/esi prior to facilitating .... This used to be true up to Win98. Windows seemed to drop that requirement starting at least with WinXP. I can remember one program I wrote where I popped the esi/edi registers in the wrong order and th...

Re: Problem 103

You seem to have forgotten the 2nd rule, i.e.
ii . If B contains more elements than C then S(B) > S(C).

7+8+9 = 24 while 11+14 = 25

Re: Problem 008

abc
def
ghi
But they must also be on the same line if you are looking at more than two items. Thus for three adjacent items, the only candidates would be:
abc, aei, adg, beh, ceg,cfi, def and ghi.

Re: How to access the PDF containing answer explanations ?

At this time, you can't. For your info, in case you are not yet aware of it, the site was hacked a few weeks ago and was shut down as soon as it was discovered. It is being rewritten to make it more secure and hopefully will become available within the next few weeks along with the PDFs.

There's also something wrong with the formula from rayfil, the only one who explained it a bit: it's mostly weird characters like à and ¬. So could anyone explain that to me? Sorry about that mishap. This is the very first report regarding this anomaly. Something may have changed in the site script...

Re: Throw in the towel option?

It would be better to have a button to change the status of a solved problem back to unsolved, if you think you have cheated or that your solution is too bad. That option is available already without the need for a "button". On the main Project Euler site, click on the "Account" tab where you can s...

You would certainly get more answers to your questions regarding fasm by posting them in the flat assembler forum http://board.flatassembler.net/index.php. I've also moved your post to the Programming languages sub-forum.

Re: Problem 199

You can use "almost" any source of information you may be comfortable with and from which you can learn something. The sources which are not particularly recommended are those which simply give you the answer to the problem and from which you would learn NOTHING.
