On page one of this thread, Robert Gerbicz says "No, read the wikipedia's article! For this problem, because the answer will be in [1000,10000) the submitted answer should be in the form: abcd.efghij (and use rounding to get the last digit)."

### Re: Problem 578

There seems to be an error in the first sentence of the problem. Any positive integer can be written as a product of prime powers: p 1 a 1 × p 2 a 2 × ... × p k a k , where p i are distinct prime integers, a i > 0 and p i < p j if i < j. A positive power of a prime can't equal 1. Tom 1 is the limit...

### Re: Are overview PDFs still being written?

After the first page the overview PDFs become very scarce... Would it be a good idea to allow solvers to write stuff and submit if (and should one be good enough it can be chosen) ? This is what the private forum for each problem is all about. The private forum allows each solver to describe his or...

### Re: Timeline feature

Actually, I can see some problems already have this information in the tooltip! However, some older problems don't seem to have the "Completed on" field present. Has there been some data loss in the past that caused this information to be lost? The date a problem was solved was not collected by the...

10% larger than the smallest side is not equivalent to 10% smaller than the larger side.

### Re: Problem 563: Wrong example?

In Problem 563 (Robot Welders), it's stated as an example the following: "... M(3) = 889200 ..." Is it trully correct? Or this example doesn't square with reality? Cause I found that M(3) = 619344 and three variants are 748x828, 759x816 and 782x792 748x828 is not valid because "the long side must n...

### Re: Problem 563

It is stated that " The target area of 889200 is the smallest area which can be manufactured in three different variants ". This number seems to be compliant with the problem requirements for M(3) and smaller than 889200 : 865800 = 888 x 975 = 900 x 962 = 925 x 936 Could someone explain why it is n...

Can anybody tell me what "but no turning on the spot" means in the statement of problem 208? Does it mean that a path cannot include a series of 5 clockwise circular arcs or a series of 5 anticlockwise circular arcs? It means there are no sharp angle. Direction changes smoothly from one arc to the ...
