Project Euler

I’m a latecomer to the Project Euler game, but I’m looking for a strong finish.

I’ve been trying to hone my Python skills, so I Dove Into Python with a vengeance. That didn’t quite sate my desire for crazy coding fun, and my good buddy Sean suggested the Infamous FizzBuzz test.

Well, I loved it, and I searched for more similar problems, and I got to the first Project Euler question:

If we list all the natural numbers below 10 that are multiples of 3 or 5, we get 3, 5, 6 and 9. The sum of these multiples is 23.
Find the sum of all the multiples of 3 or 5 below 1000.

I was thrilled! A minor modification to my fizzbuzz program and I was off and running. I’ve currently completed somewhere around 20… but I’ll admit that I’ve skipped to the end am trying my hand at Problem 282, the dreaded Ackermann Function.

So – if you’re a coder, why don’t you try it out?

  1. You should enter Google Code Jam with me this summer. When I did it two summers ago I made it past the qualifiers but was never able to go further because of life events. I’m planning on doing it again. Lots of fun problems like this.
