## 1 Problem 41

What is the largest n-digit pandigital prime that exists?

Solution:

problem_41 = head [p | n <- init (tails "987654321"), p <- perms n, isPrime (read p)] where perms [] = [[]] perms xs = [x:ps | x <- xs, ps <- perms (delete x xs)] isPrime n = n > 1 && smallestDivisor n == n smallestDivisor n = findDivisor n (2:[3,5..]) findDivisor n (testDivisor:rest) | n `mod` testDivisor == 0 = testDivisor | testDivisor*testDivisor >= n = n | otherwise = findDivisor n rest

## 2 Problem 42

How many triangle words can you make using the list of common English words?

Solution:

problem_42 = undefined

## 3 Problem 43

Find the sum of all pandigital numbers with an unusual sub-string divisibility property.

Solution:

problem_43 = undefined

## 4 Problem 44

Find the smallest pair of pentagonal numbers whose sum and difference is pentagonal.

Solution:

problem_44 = undefined

## 5 Problem 45

After 40755, what is the next triangle number that is also pentagonal and hexagonal?

Solution:

problem_45 = head . dropWhile (<= 40755) $ match tries (match pents hexes) where match (x:xs) (y:ys) | x < y = match xs (y:ys) | y < x = match (x:xs) ys | otherwise = x : match xs ys tries = [n*(n+1) `div` 2 | n <- [1..]] pents = [n*(3*n-1) `div` 2 | n <- [1..]] hexes = [n*(2*n-1) | n <- [1..]]

## 6 Problem 46

What is the smallest odd composite that cannot be written as the sum of a prime and twice a square?

Solution:

This solution is inspired by exercise 3.70 in *Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs*, (2nd ed.).

problem_46 = head $ oddComposites `orderedDiff` gbSums oddComposites = filter ((>1) . length . primeFactors) [3,5..] gbSums = map gbWeight $ weightedPairs gbWeight primes [2*n*n | n <- [1..]] gbWeight (a,b) = a + b weightedPairs w (x:xs) (y:ys) = (x,y) : mergeWeighted w (map ((,)x) ys) (weightedPairs w xs (y:ys)) mergeWeighted w (x:xs) (y:ys) | w x <= w y = x : mergeWeighted w xs (y:ys) | otherwise = y : mergeWeighted w (x:xs) ys x `orderedDiff` [] = x [] `orderedDiff` y = [] (x:xs) `orderedDiff` (y:ys) | x < y = x : xs `orderedDiff` (y:ys) | x > y = (x:xs) `orderedDiff` ys | otherwise = xs `orderedDiff` ys

## 7 Problem 47

Find the first four consecutive integers to have four distinct primes factors.

Solution:

problem_47 = undefined

## 8 Problem 48

Find the last ten digits of 1^{1} + 2^{2} + ... + 1000^{1000}.

Solution: If the problem were more computationally intensive, modular exponentiation might be appropriate. With this problem size the naive approach is sufficient.

problem_48 = sum [n^n | n <- [1..1000]] `mod` 10^10

## 9 Problem 49

Find arithmetic sequences, made of prime terms, whose four digits are permutations of each other.

Solution:

problem_49 = undefined

## 10 Problem 50

Which prime, below one-million, can be written as the sum of the most consecutive primes?

Solution:

problem_50 = undefined
