What is the greatest product of four numbers on the same straight line in the 20 by 20 grid?

Solution: using Array and Arrows, for fun :

import Control.Arrow import Data.Array input :: String -> Array (Int,Int) Int input = listArray ((1,1),(20,20)) . map read . words senses = [(+1) *** id,(+1) *** (+1), id *** (+1), (+1) *** (\n -> n - 1)] inArray a i = inRange (bounds a) i prods :: Array (Int, Int) Int -> [Int] prods a = [product xs | i <- range $ bounds a, s <- senses, let is = take 4 $ iterate s i, all (inArray a) is, let xs = map (a!) is] main = print . maximum . prods . input =<< getContents

## [edit] 2 Problem 12

What is the first triangle number to have over five-hundred divisors?

Solution:

--primeFactors in problem_3 problem_12 = head $ filter ((> 500) . nDivisors) triangleNumbers where nDivisors n = product $ map ((+1) . length) (group (primeFactors n)) triangleNumbers = scanl1 (+) [1..]

## [edit] 3 Problem 13

Find the first ten digits of the sum of one-hundred 50-digit numbers.

Solution:

main = do xs <- fmap (map read . lines) (readFile "p13.log") print . take 10 . show . sum $ xs

## [edit] 4 Problem 14

Find the longest sequence using a starting number under one million.

Solution:

import Data.List problem_14 = j 1000000 where f :: Int -> Integer -> Int f k 1 = k f k n = f (k+1) $ if even n then div n 2 else 3*n + 1 g x y = if snd x < snd y then y else x h x n = g x (n, f 1 n) j n = fst $ foldl' h (1,1) [2..n-1]

Faster solution, using unboxed types and parallel computation:

import Control.Parallel import Data.Word collatzLen :: Int -> Word32 -> Int collatzLen c 1 = c collatzLen c n = collatzLen (c+1) $ if n `mod` 2 == 0 then n `div` 2 else 3*n+1 pmax x n = x `max` (collatzLen 1 n, n) solve xs = foldl pmax (1,1) xs main = print soln where s1 = solve [2..500000] s2 = solve [500001..1000000] soln = s2 `par` (s1 `pseq` max s1 s2)

Even faster solution, using an Array to memoize length of sequences :

import Data.Array import Data.List import Data.Ord (comparing) syrs n = a where a = listArray (1,n) $ 0:[1 + syr n x | x <- [2..n]] syr n x = if x' <= n then a ! x' else 1 + syr n x' where x' = if even x then x `div` 2 else 3 * x + 1 main = print $ maximumBy (comparing snd) $ assocs $ syrs 1000000

## [edit] 5 Problem 15

Starting in the top left corner in a 20 by 20 grid, how many routes are there to the bottom right corner?

Solution: A direct computation:

problem_15 = iterate (scanl1 (+)) (repeat 1) !! 20 !! 20

Thinking about it as a problem in combinatorics:

Each route has exactly 40 steps, with 20 of them horizontal and 20 of them vertical. We need to count how many different ways there are of choosing which steps are horizontal and which are vertical. So we have:

problem_15 = product [21..40] `div` product [2..20]

## [edit] 6 Problem 16

What is the sum of the digits of the number 2^{1000}?

Solution:

import Data.Char problem_16 = sum k where s = show (2^1000) k = map digitToInt s

## [edit] 7 Problem 17

How many letters would be needed to write all the numbers in words from 1 to 1000?

Solution:

import Char one = ["one","two","three","four","five","six","seven","eight", "nine","ten","eleven","twelve","thirteen","fourteen","fifteen", "sixteen","seventeen","eighteen", "nineteen"] ty = ["twenty","thirty","forty","fifty","sixty","seventy","eighty","ninety"] decompose x | x == 0 = [] | x < 20 = one !! (x-1) | x >= 20 && x < 100 = ty !! (firstDigit (x) - 2) ++ decompose ( x - firstDigit (x) * 10) | x < 1000 && x `mod` 100 ==0 = one !! (firstDigit (x)-1) ++ "hundred" | x > 100 && x <= 999 = one !! (firstDigit (x)-1) ++ "hundredand" ++decompose ( x - firstDigit (x) * 100) | x == 1000 = "onethousand" where firstDigit x = digitToInt . head . show $ x problem_17 = length . concatMap decompose $ [1..1000]

## [edit] 8 Problem 18

Find the maximum sum travelling from the top of the triangle to the base.

Solution:

problem_18 = head $ foldr1 g tri where f x y z = x + max y z g xs ys = zipWith3 f xs ys $ tail ys tri = [ [75], [95,64], [17,47,82], [18,35,87,10], [20,04,82,47,65], [19,01,23,75,03,34], [88,02,77,73,07,63,67], [99,65,04,28,06,16,70,92], [41,41,26,56,83,40,80,70,33], [41,48,72,33,47,32,37,16,94,29], [53,71,44,65,25,43,91,52,97,51,14], [70,11,33,28,77,73,17,78,39,68,17,57], [91,71,52,38,17,14,91,43,58,50,27,29,48], [63,66,04,68,89,53,67,30,73,16,69,87,40,31], [04,62,98,27,23,09,70,98,73,93,38,53,60,04,23]]

## [edit] 9 Problem 19

You are given the following information, but you may prefer to do some research for yourself.

- 1 Jan 1900 was a Monday.
- Thirty days has September,
- April, June and November.
- All the rest have thirty-one,
- Saving February alone,

Which has twenty-eight, rain or shine. And on leap years, twenty-nine.

- A leap year occurs on any year evenly divisible by 4, but not on a century unless it is divisible by 400.

How many Sundays fell on the first of the month during the twentieth century (1 Jan 1901 to 31 Dec 2000)?

Solution:

problem_19 = length . filter (== sunday) . drop 12 . take 1212 $ since1900 since1900 = scanl nextMonth monday . concat $ replicate 4 nonLeap ++ cycle (leap : replicate 3 nonLeap) nonLeap = [31, 28, 31, 30, 31, 30, 31, 31, 30, 31, 30, 31] leap = 31 : 29 : drop 2 nonLeap nextMonth x y = (x + y) `mod` 7 sunday = 0 monday = 1

Here is an alternative that is simpler, but it is cheating a bit:

import Data.Time.Calendar import Data.Time.Calendar.WeekDate problem_19_v2 = length [() | y <- [1901..2000], m <- [1..12], let (_, _, d) = toWeekDate $ fromGregorian y m 1, d == 7]

## [edit] 10 Problem 20
