This forum is NOT meant to discuss solution methods for a problem.

In particular don't post any code fragments or results.

Don't start begging others to give partial answers to problems

Don't ask for hints how to solve a problem

Don't start a new topic for a problem if there already exists one

[mar] don't post any code fragments or results. [/mar]

This forum is a place for users to air their possible concerns or difficulties in understanding specific ProjectEuler problems.
It is not a forum to discuss solution methods or post spoilers. The proper place to discuss relevant algorithms, solution methods, proofs, results for higher limits etc is of course the thread of each problem which becomes accessible only after submitting the correct answer.

Before you start a new topic in this forum, please make sure that a topic for the same problem does not already exist.
If such a topic already exists, please post your question or concern in that topic; it's the only way to keep the number of topics manageable and make it possible to easily search for a specific problem.

If there is no previous topic for the specific problem you are trying to solve, you may start a new topic, giving as subject Problem xxx. Please do not use in the Subject-field expressions like "Clarification needed", "problem with the wording", "Correct answer not accepted" etc

Finally, please do not start topics about specific PE problems in other parts of this bulletin board; it is much easier for everyone to have all the relevant comments, questions etc. collected in one place, i.e. this forum.

As your posts will be visible to the general public you are requested to be thoughtful in not posting anything that might explicitly give away how to solve a particular problem. In particular don't post any code fragments or results.

And it would be really nice if the first post contains a link to the problem: Problem 123 (View Problem)


edit: to make a link to problem 123, copy the following text (without the spaces)
[link ]123[/link ]

This becomes:
Problem 123 (View Problem)

For easier searching, notice that there are Sort Order buttons at the bottom of the list of topics. Set it to Ascending by Subject to see the problems in order. Of course, there's a search box, too.

Stijn, could you show a code to produce link "view problem"? I'm not expert in html etc.
2 x 2 = 4 = true

[ link]problemnumber[ /link] (without the spaces)
If you look at the edit screen there is a row of buttons above the form.
One of these reads link. When you press this one [ link][ /link] is produced. between these two tags you can insert the problem number.
Also when you hover over this button a little help pops up.
