### Re: Pick a Language

A programming challenge is handling change propagation in distributed multi tier business applications. Each time I created an automated migrated process for a large scale production application had it's own unique challenges. But ultimately, the business rules that govern such a system have less a...

### Re: Pick a Language

I have programmed the solutions to the problems on this site is Java. This is the language with which I have the most knowledge. Many (most, nearly all) of these problems require a significant amount of knowledge beyond what you know about your specific computer language. While solving these problem...

### Re: Problem 007

I have variables that I am using to reference a point in the array, but those variables are longs In Java, an array index must be an int. For those that do not know Java, and int is a 32-bit integer. I get errors because it can't convert long to int or something. When using a long as an index to an...

Yes, you are correct. When I wrote "factor", I was thinking "prime factor". Thanks for the clarification.TripleM wrote:Factor and divisor are synonyms and mean exactly the same thing.davidFashion wrote:A factor is not a divisor.

### Re: Problem 012

my program(in java) is too slow to find the first factor with over 500 divisors. ... Other comments removed ... does anyone know a quicker way to find how many factors a number has? A factor is not a divisor. I would suggest reviewing your program to ensure that you are solving the requested proble...

### Re: Problem 014

I don't see what I am doing wrong. I have a for loop going from a million down to two (I have tried the other way around also), and it checks if even or odd, and then does the correct formula, and then adds one to the count. For some reason, it is doing it only for the number 1 million, and then st...

### Re: Here's an interesting question -- Daffodil number probl

Very interesting! I conducted a training class in 2005 on Java performance tuning. The entire course was on a program that generated the Narcissistic numbers. We started the class with the default brute force program (for i = 1 to max - check if i is a narcissistic number). Then for each class, we d...

### Re: Skeptical that my answer is incorrect

I worked it out a couple of days ago. For the 50 digit summation one, I was giving the full answer not just the first 10 digits. The bizarre thing about the primes one was that I was using very different methods, including downloading the primes I needed, and getting the same answer! As it turns ou...

### Re: Problem 202

I am close, but my number for 1000001 is off by 4. I'm getting 80844 instead of 80840. Can someone verify my answer for 227 bounces, 28 paths? That is, 19 paths per side but 5 of them exit before the required number of bounces. 121198 paths with 1000007 bounces? For 227, I also get 28 paths. For 10...

### Re: Problem 319

Are these correct:

t(2) = 5

t(3) = 23

t(4) = 83

t(5) = 293

t(6) = 937

t(7) = 2995

t(8) = 9235

t(9) = 28396

I am asking because my value for t(10) is incorrect.

t(2) = 5

t(3) = 23

t(4) = 83

t(5) = 293

t(6) = 937

t(7) = 2995

t(8) = 9235

t(9) = 28396

I am asking because my value for t(10) is incorrect.
