## 1 Problem 181

Investigating in how many ways objects of two different colours can be grouped.

## 2 Problem 182

RSA encryption.

Solution:

fun a1 b1 = sum [ e | e <- [2..a*b-1], gcd e (a*b) == 1, gcd (e-1) a == 2, gcd (e-1) b == 2 ] where a = a1-1 b = b1-1 problem_182 = fun 1009 3643

## 3 Problem 183

Maximum product of parts.

Solution:

-- Does the decimal expansion of p/q terminate? terminating p q = 1 == reduce [2,5] (q `div` gcd p q) where reduce [] n = n reduce (x:xs) n | n `mod` x == 0 = reduce (x:xs) (n `div` x) | otherwise = reduce xs n -- The expression (round $ fromIntegral n / e) computes the integer k -- for which (n/k)^k is at a maximum. Also note that, given a rational number -- r and a natural number k, the decimal expansion of r^k terminates if -- and only if the decimal expansion of r does. answer = sum [if terminating n (round $ fromIntegral n / e) then -n else n | n <- [5 .. 10^4]] where e = exp 1 main = print answer

## 4 Problem 184

Triangles containing the origin.

Solution:

problem_184 = undefined

## 5 Problem 185

Number Mind

Solution:

This approach does **NOT** solve the problem in under a minute,
unless of course you are extremely lucky. The best time I've
seen so far has been about 76 seconds. Before I came up with
this code, I tried to search for the solution by generating a
list of all possible solutions based on the information given in
the guesses. This was feasible with the 5 digit problem, but
completely intractable with the 16 digit problem. The approach
here, simple yet effective, is to make a random guess, and then
vary each digit in the guess from [0..9], generating a score of
how well the guess matched the given numbermind clues. You then
*improve* the guess by selecting those digits that had a unique
low score. It turns out this approach converges rather quickly,
but can often be stuck in cycles, so we test for this and try a
differenct random first guess if a cycle is detected. Once you
run the program, you might have time for a cup of coffee, or
maybe even a dinner. HenryLaxen 2008-03-12
