Hi mdean,
If you could PM your value, I can confirm it.

Re: Project Euler Style Sheet Update

Many thanks to the PE team for the new style. The site looks great with the new styling.

The only issue that I saw was as that of MHealy. For non-permananent posts, the kudos are slightly mis-aligned in Chrome.

Truly appreciate the hard work in getting PE a new style.

Re: An Infinite Prime Number Generator

I changed the code to remove the loop-checking and use modified-step values but still no improvements in timing. For example, the mod-2 version takes ~ 75 secs to list all primes upto 10^8, the mod-6 version takes ~ 85 secs whereas the step-adjusted-mod-6 version takes ~ 95 secs. step-adjusted-mod-6...

Re: An Infinite Prime Number Generator

Thanks v6ph1. I too arrived at the same loop for making the program slow. But I think it may be slightly different. Rather than the loop checking, I think the runs more often as the chance of hitting the numbers with mod in the given set becomes low. That I think is the trade-off in the higher mod v...

Re: an old maths olympiad question

@ jaap , I think you did all the heavy lifting leaving just the algebra to me. The key to solving this problem is to pick the 'central angle' as the variable of interest. Though the 'cubic' approach ended nowhere, it reminded me of the trick of evaluating $\sin(\pi/5)$ exactly, which I kinda used to...

Re: an old maths olympiad question

... It is straightforward to see that: A1A2 = 2sin(x) A1A3 = 2sin(2x) A1A4 = 2sin(3x) From here, we have, $\displaystyle\frac{1}{\sin x}=\frac{1}{\sin 2x}+\frac{1}{\sin 3x}$ $\displaystyle\sin 2x=\frac{\sin x \sin 3x}{\sin 3x-\sin x}=\frac{\sin x \sin 3x}{2\sin x-4 \sin^3 x}=\frac{\sin x\sin 3x}{2 ...

Die and matchsticks game from 'The Goal'

Hi All, This post is about an analysis of a game described in Goldratt's best seller 'The Goal'. The game is as follows: Consider $b$ bins of infinite capacity in a row with an imaginary Source of infinite matchsticks. Matchsticks are transferred to the bins in the following manner: For every bin, m...

Should the number of solvers be hidden until we solve a problem? At least recently for me, I'm taking ...

Re: Problem 623

Scoping in lambda calculus works very much like in C-family languages. Consider these two lines of pseudo-code: { string x = "foo"; { string y = "bar"; print(x, y); } } { string x = "foo"; { string x = "bar"; print(x, x); } } They are not equivalent, because the first one prints "foo bar" and the s...

Re: CAN MATLAB SOLVE THESE PROBLEMS

The choice of programming language is tough problem by itself in PE. Probably, the best answer would be, 'No one programming language can solve all the problems equally well'. I've seen many MATLAB solutions in the 400- problems, but lately many problems seems solvable-within-a-minute in C, C++ most...

The question introduces $c, s, p$ and $q$ as circumference of the circles but in the second para says they are the numbers of teeth. Am confused about the interpretation of these values in the final summation. I'm already confused about whether the 'module' is something implicitly given or not? Many...
