Please tell me. Isnt the "Numbers that are the sum of 2 distinct nonzero squares in exactly 1 way" the correct sequence for the problem ?
No, what happens when you find three different sums for one number?

Re: Problem 620

Hi Dani In particular, if I assume that all circles must be tangent, and that the points of tangency have to be a half-integer number of centimetres apart, then I get g(16,5,5,6)=0. Why is this assumption wrong? Take a close look at the illustration given, showing a valid configuration. You can see ...

The iteration continues with any amout of money, no rounding of the amount left (or gained) happens during the process.

Re: Problem 243

You can find a lower resilent fraction for higher denominators, the question is how big the denominator must get in order to get the resilent fraction below the given treshold for the very first time. That's no contradiction. PS: Your nickname sounds german. If english is an issue and german is fine...

Yes, thanks for this comment, Ken. This is especially true when a problem is just a few days old.

Re: Inconsistency on Project Eulers problems forum

I think a nice addition to the forum would be an ability to see a persons original name somewhere near his post. Maybe under his current name or maybe like it is done in the leaderboards. I am not sure I get your point. It is true that the user name pops up in the fastest solver table as (part of t...

Re: Problem 629

hi, tamandua The parameter $k$ does not restrict the number of piles in the starting position nor the number of piles present after a valid move, only the number of piles a single pile may be split into. Therefore is {1,1,1,2} a valid starting position for a game with $k=2$, and happens to be a winn...

Re: Extension of the difficulty rating

Hi ZeHgS, let me answer your last question. We have no plan to measure the efficiency of individual solutions. There are many competitive programming sites that offer this benchmarking. However (apart from not wanting Project Euler to become another look-alike), there are several drawbacks to this d...

Motivating peolpe to solve more problems between 100 and lets's say 500 is indeed a good idea, just because many of these problems are very beautiful and quite a few new problems ideas have been introduced with some of them. For this reason we already have some awards encourraging solving these like...

Hi KING-OLE It states that the flap is an isosceles triangle, but while I have assumed the identical sides are the top sides of the flap, it could in theory be the left side and the side crossing the paper, leaving the flap looking rather odd. No, this is not the case, the isosceles triangle is orie...

Re: Notifications...

On this site email notification can be customized via the user control panel, submenu "board preferences".

On the main site we decided against keeping any sensitiv data including email adresses (after PE being hacked twice), so we can't provide this service there.
