## Problem 102

Solution:

```
import Text.Regex
--ghc -M p102.hs
isOrig (x1:y1:x2:y2:x3:y3:[])=
t1*t2>=0 && t3*t4>=0 && t5*t6>=0
where
x4=0
y4=0
t1=(y2-y1)*(x4-x1)+(x1-x2)*(y4-y1)
t2=(y2-y1)*(x3-x1)+(x1-x2)*(y3-y1)
t3=(y3-y1)*(x4-x1)+(x1-x3)*(y4-y1)
t4=(y3-y1)*(x2-x1)+(x1-x3)*(y2-y1)
t5=(y3-y2)*(x4-x2)+(x2-x3)*(y4-y2)

## Problem 103

```

## Problem 104

Finding Fibonacci numbers for which the first and last nine digits are pandigital.

Solution:

Very nice problem. I didnt realize you could deal with the precision problem. Therefore I used this identity to speed up the fibonacci calculation: f_(2*n+k) = f_k*(f_(n+1))^2 + 2*f_(k-1)*f_(n+1)*f_n + f_(k-2)*(f_n)^2

```
import Data.List
import Data.Char
fibos = rec 0 1
where
rec a b = a:rec b (a+b)
fibo_2nk n k =
let
fkm1 = fibo (k-1)
fkm2 = fibo (k-2)
fk = fkm1 + fkm2
fnp1 = fibo (n+1)
fnp1sq = fnp1^2
fn = fibo n
fnsq = fn^2
in
fk*fnp1sq + 2*fkm1*fnp1*fn + fkm2*fnsq
fibo x =
let
threshold = 30000
n = div x 3
k = n+mod x 3
in
if x < threshold
then fibos !! x
else fibo_2nk n k
findCandidates = rec 0 1 0
where
m = 10^9
rec a b n =
let
continue = rec b (mod (a+b) m) (n+1)
isBackPan a = (sort $ show a) == "123456789"
in
if isBackPan a
then n:continue
else continue
search =
let
isFrontPan x = (sort $ take 9 $ show x) == "123456789"
in
map fst
$ take 1
$ dropWhile (not.snd)
$ zip findCandidates
$ map (isFrontPan.fibo) findCandidates
problem_104 = search
```

It took 8 sec on a 2.2Ghz machine.

The lesson I learned fom this challenge, is: know mathematical identities and exploit them. They allow you take short cuts. Normally you compute all previous fibonacci numbers to compute a random fibonacci number. Which has linear costs. The aforementioned identity builds the number not from its two predecessors but from 4 much smaller ones. This makes the algorithm logarithmic in its complexity. It really shines if you want to compute a random very large fibonacci number. f.i. the 10mio.th fibonacci number which is over 2mio characters long, took 20sec to compute on my 2.2ghz laptop.

## Problem 105
