Re: Counting constrained squarefree numbers

The same idea works for this case too. If I'm not wrong, you only have to learn to use the idea from Problem 1 (View Problem).

Re: Problem 740

It takes a simple brute force to verify that the intended process is 112233. The source of confusion is maybe because of the following words: “As before each person takes a random slip from the hat that does not contain their name. Then they do the same process again so that they end up with two sli...

Re: How to compute a two-variable recurrence function C(n,n) in O(n) time?

A simple idea is to convert them into bivariate generating functions.. For example, define

$\displaystyle F(x, y) = \sum_{n,k \geq 0}C(n,k)x^ny^k$

Use the recurrence you have quoted to arrive at an expression for $F(x,y)$. That should hopefully give you the required $O(n)$ algo.

Re: Problem 727

Hi yourmaths, "chosen uniformly" here means we choose one triple from among those which satisfy the limits AND the GCD condition. If you consider only the limit, you'll have a total of $\displaystyle \binom{100}{3}$ triples to choose from. But we will have lower number of triples because o...

Username not known

Hi, For some reason, I can't login to my account. PE says 'Username not known'.

Re: Problem 613

It's just a mathematical description RishadanPort. To make it more abstract, if you randomly select a point inside a right angled triangle and randomly choose some direction to draw a line (starting from the point we chose), what is the probability that the line intersects the hypotenuse?

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...
