Solution:

where nDivisors n = product $ map ((+1) . length) (group (primeFactors n))
triangleNumbers = scanl1 (+) [1..]
Problem 13
Find the first ten digits of the sum of onehundred 50digit numbers.
Solution:
main = do xs < fmap (map read . lines) (readFile "p13.log")
print . take 10 . show . sum $ xs
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..n1]
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

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 =

where
a = listArray (1,n) $ 0 : map syr [2..n]

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]

 x == 1000 = "onethousand"
where firstDigit x = digitToInt . head . show $ x
problem_17 = length . concatMap decompose $ [1..1000]

 1 Jan 1900 was a Monday.
 Thirty days has September,
 April, June and November.
 All the rest have thirtyone,
 Saving February alone,
Which has twentyeight, rain or shine. And on leap years, twentynine.
 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]
Problem 20
Find the sum of digits in 100!
Solution:
problem_20 = sum $ map Char.digitToInt $ show $ product [1..100]
