```
reduce x y = (quot x d, quot y d)
where d = gcd x y
problem_91 n =
3*n*n + 2* sum others
where
others =[min xc yc|
x1 <- [1..n],

squares :: Array Char Int
squares = array ('0','9') [ (intToDigit x,x^2) | x <- [0..9] ]
next :: Int -> Int
next = sum . map (squares !) . show
factorial n = if n == 0 then 1 else n * factorial (n - 1)
countNum xs=ys

pow 1 x=x
pow n x =mult x $pow (n-1) x
where
mult [d,a, b] [_,a1, b1]=d:[a*a1+d*b*b1,a*b1+b*a1]
--find it looks like (5-5-6)

let n2=3*n1+2
]
problem_94=sum f556+sum f665-2
```

## Problem 95

Find the smallest member of the longest amicable chain with no element exceeding one million. Here is a more straightforward solution, without optimization. Yet it solves the problem in a few seconds when compiled with GHC 6.6.1 with the -O2 flag. I like to let the compiler do the optimization, without cluttering my code.

This solution avoids using unboxed arrays, which many consider to be somewhat of an imperitive-style hack. In fact, no memoization at all is required.

```
import Data.List (foldl1', group)
-- The longest chain of numbers is (n, k), where
-- n is the smallest number in the chain, and k is the length
-- of the chain. We limit the search to chains whose
-- smallest number is no more than m and, optionally, whose
-- largest number is no more than m'.
chain s n n'
| n' == n = s
| n' < n = []
| (< n') 1000000 = []
| n' `elem` s = []
| otherwise = chain(n' : s) n $ eulerTotient n'
findChain n = length$chain [] n $ eulerTotient n
longestChain =
foldl1' cmpChain [(n, findChain n) | n <- [12496..15000]]
where
cmpChain p@(n, k) q@(n', k')
| (k, negate n) < (k', negate n') = q
| otherwise = p
problem_95 = fst $ longestChain
```

## Problem 96

groupsOf _ [] = []
groupsOf n xs =
front : groupsOf n back
where
(front,back) = splitAt n xs
extrapolate :: Grid -> [Grid]
extrapolate [] = []
extrapolate g =
if null zeroes
then [] -- no more zeroes, must have solved it
else map mkGrid possibilities
where
flat = concat g
numbered = zip [0..] flat
zeroes = filter ((=='0') . snd) numbered
p = fst . head $ zeroes
possibilities =
['1'..'9'] \\ (row g p ++ col g p ++ cell g p)
(front,_:back) = splitAt p flat
mkGrid new = groupsOf 9 (front ++ [new] ++ back)

## Problem 98

Investigating words, and their anagrams, which can represent square numbers.

Solution:

```
import Data.List

-- Replace each letter of a word, or digit of a number, with
-- the index of where that letter or digit first appears
profile :: Ord a => [a] -> [Int]
profile x = map (fromJust . flip lookup (indices x)) x
where
indices = map head . groupBy fstEq . sort . flip zip [0..]
-- Check for equality on the first component of a tuple
fstEq :: Eq a => (a, b) -> (a, b) -> Bool
fstEq x y = (fst x) == (fst y)
-- The histogram of a small list
hist :: Ord a => [a] -> [(a, Int)]
hist = let item g = (head g, length g) in map item . group . sort
-- The list of anagram sets for a word list.
anagrams :: Ord a => [[a]] -> [[[a]]]
anagrams x = map (map snd) $ filter (not . null . drop 1) $
groupBy fstEq $ sort $ zip (map hist x) x
-- Given two finite lists that are a permutation of one
-- another, return the permutation function
mkPermute :: Ord a => [a] -> [a] -> ([b] -> [b])
mkPermute x y = pairsToPermute $ concat $
zipWith zip (occurs x) (occurs y)
where
pairsToPermute ps = flip map (map snd $ sort ps) . (!!)
occurs = map (map snd) . groupBy fstEq . sort . flip zip [0..]
problem_98 :: [String] -> Int
problem_98 ws = read $ head
[y | was <- sortBy longFirst $ anagrams ws, -- word anagram sets
w1:t <- tails was, w2 <- t,

]
run_problem_98 :: IO Int

words_file <- readFile "words.txt"
let words = read $ '[' : words_file ++ "]"
return $ problem_98 words
-- Sort on length of first element, from longest to shortest
longFirst :: [[a]] -> [[a]] -> Ordering
longFirst (x:_) (y:_) = compareLen y x
-- Is y longer than x?
longerThan :: [a] -> [a] -> Bool
longerThan x y = compareLen x y == LT

compareLen :: [a] -> [a] -> Ordering
