Re: Errors/Warnings/Bugs

Hi, I am having trouble opening the thread for Problem 497. Chrome would load a few posts but when I scrolled down further, it became just a blank screen. Maths formulas were not rendered and code sections would not open. Thank you for reporting this. I cannot load the thread either: the Chrome tab...

Re: Problem 059

Hi! I also have trouble in getting "an OK - problem solved" although I'm like TristenR am pretty sure I've solved it. However, counting up the entries in the original file - I only get 1454... which is contrary to TristenRs 1455. What is the correct number here (in the original text file)? Thanks i...

Re: Problem 207

...where $4^t$, $2^t$, and $k$ are all positive integers and $t$ is a real number. For any m ≥ 1 let P(m) be the proportion of such partitions that are perfect with k ≤ m . So there are two partitions, $4^1 = 2^1 + 2$ and $4^{1.5849625...} = 2^{1.5849625...} + 6$ with $k\le 6$, only one of which ha...

701 "Consider the maximum area of connected cells." Nowhere is "maximum area" defined. It's just the literal meaning. The largest possible area of a connected set of (black) cells. Wouldn't the largest possible area be W x H, i.e. the given square with every square a black square? That is one possi...

Did you mmean Pi, rather than e? E's has a pattern (as shown in this thread), whereas Pi's is patternless.
I'm saying that you would not expect a pattern for e, so it is surprising that there is one.

In the problem statement it lists 2k as one of the components of the continued fraction, but nowhere is it stated what k is. Help? It is just there to indicate that the pattern shown in the first numbers continues. It shows what an arbitrary section of the list would look like. Here are some other ...

Take a look at hk's post on the first page of the problem's discussion forum. It shows the relationship between two solutions. If you plot all the related solutions (i.e....

Re: Problem 027

All the solutions on a parabola are related to each other in a very simple way. Given that the solution to the problem lies on such a parabola, it would be a spoiler to discuss it too much.

Re: Problem 601

I disagree. $k$ is essentially the length of the streak, i.e. how many consecutive lines in the two examples have divisibility before the line where it is no longer divisible. Like a lucky streak, it is about how long you can keep it going before your luck runs out. The divisibility by 1 is part of ...

Re: Problem 689

Thanks for the clarification. I'm still worried that f(x) may not be clearly defined. For example, the decimal fraction 1/2 has two binary representations: 0.1000... and 0.0111.... And those lead to f(1/2) = f(0.1000.. (base 2) ) = 1, and f(1/2) = f(0.0111.. (base 2) ) = π 2 /6 - 1. While these are...

Thanks for fixing that hk. Shouldn't there be a floor function around the $\frac{7^K-1}{11}$ term?

Is "no nothing" a typo for "do nothing"?
