Are you interested in solving problems? Then head to Project Euler and start your problem solving journey. There are hundreds of “challenging mathematical/computer programming problems that will require more than just mathematical insights to solve”.
I just started my own problem solving journey and the status of my current progress is shown on the right. At the time of writing I’ve solved following problems:
- Problem 1: Multiples of 3 and 5
- Problem 2: Even Fibonacci numbers
- Problem 3: Largest prime factor
- Problem 13: Large sum
- Problem 20: Factorial digit sum
- Problem 25: 1000-digit Fibonacci number
I’ve used Xtend to solve the above problems but Project Euler problems can be, of course, solved using any programming language imaginable.
Xtend documentation, by the way, mentions Project Euler and that was the first place I’ve even heard of the site although it’s been available since 2001. The first problem was published 5th October 2001 and new problems are published regularly.
