On the Archive page there are up and down arrows above several columns. If you press the up arrow of the 'Solved by' column problems are sorted by the number of solvers in ascending order.

Re: Removing incentive for spoilers

Vamsi, you aren't doing right to Project Euler. I know quite a few problems on Hackerrank that don't have an editorial (most of the Hackerrank problems based on Project Euler problems don't have one). Moreover I know quite a few online judges that don't have any editorials at all e.g. SPOJ, Kattis, ...

Re: easier new problems?

Risking to say something you know already, but did you try to sort the problems on increasing difficulty?
That might reveal some higher numbered problems you could try to solve too.

Re: problem 065

I don't think so. These problems about continued fractions are meant to invite you to look up the concept.
E.g. from wikipedia. If you do so you will learn the things on the page I gave you fast enough .

Re: Problem 699, error in provided example?

No, the given example is correct. The triffle numbers not exceeding 100 are: n sigma sigma(n)/n 3 4 4/3 9 13 13/9 12 28 7/3 27 40 40/27 54 120 20/9 81 121 121/81 84 224 8/3 The answer for 10^6 is also correct. There must be another error in your program. (it is correct that the divisor 10 of 100 sho...

How is a moderator to know if your posted code is only accessible through that link?
Or if that is the case that some other idiot doesn't put this link somewhere else where the whole world can access it?
Come on it was outside PE, wasn't it?

Re: New Problem Proposal Queue

When we develop problems a tentative difficulty assessment is done (Hard,medium,easy).
When we need a new batch of problems one of the admins makes a proposal from the ready problems according to the HMEMEM sequence, (hard,medium,easy, medium,easy , medium).

Re: Problem 052

The problem says nothing about x. It may have the same digits as 2x,3x,4x,5x and 6x or not. That's absolutely irrelevant.

Yes, it concerns all publishing outside Project Euler. If you want to save your solutions you can do so locally on your computer, usb stick or external hard drive. Alternatively you can make your github repo private. Public repos, blogs etc are not allowed. The about page and the message you see whe...
