## Python: Digit fifth Powers

**Python: Digit Fifth Powers **

**Projecteuler Problem No.30**

This was an easy task and I solve it on my mobile during a brain resting session 😜. I will just copy the problem statement as it is in ProjectEuler ..

Surprisingly there are only three numbers that can be written as the sum of fourth powers of their digits:1634 = 14 + 64 + 34 + 44

8208 = 84 + 24 + 04 + 84

9474 = 94 + 44 + 74 + 44As 1 = 14 is not a sum it is not included.

The sum of these numbers is 1634 + 8208 + 9474 = 19316.

Find the sum of all the numbers that can be written as the sum of fifth powers of their digits.

Read it on Projecteuler

My Problem When I start solving the task i was wondering how far i should check the numbers? We can’t just go for ever, we must stop in some range. I search the web for such cases an i fond a post that clearing this with a formula. I will explain this in my way.

Finding the Upper Limits:

1. We are talking about Power (P=5)

2. We are using the (Base ten) numbers, so the highest digit is 9. Then:

3. 9 power 5 (9p5 = 59049)

4. The digits in (59049) are D=5.

5. Finally, The Formula is (D * 9p5), 5 * 59049 = 295245

6. So, The Upper Limits = 295245

According to the “Finding the Upper Limits” section, if we want to use the power (4) then the upper limit will be:

9p4 = 6561

6561 is a 4 digits

upper limit = 4 * 6561 = 26244

**The Code:** [The code is for power 4]

# Digit Fifth Powers

# Projecteuler Problem 30

num = 2

pdig = []

wefound = []

thesum = 0

while num < 26244 :

for each in str(num):

pdig.append(int(each) ** 4)

for x in pdig:

thesum = thesum + int(x)

if thesum == num:

wefound.append(num)

print(‘\n Number =’, num)

print(‘ Digits Power 4 =’, pdig)

print(‘ The Sum ‘, thesum)

num = num + 1

pdig = []

thesum = 0

thesum = 0

for x in wefound:

thesum = thesum + x

print(“\n The Numbers that the 4th power of its each digit = itself are: “,wefound)

print(” The Sum of the numbers is: “,thesum)

## Python: Self Power

**Python: Self Powers**

** Problem No.48 on ProjectEuler**

Another easy task in Problem No.48. We have to find the power of each number to itsefl in the range of 1 to 1000 and get the sum of all numbers, then to find the last ten digits of the series.

In this Task we will save the powers in a set name powers then we run a for loop

to get the sum of all elements in the lest, later will reade the last ten digits.

**Enhancment** In this problem I will not do any more than solving the problem, but if we want to enhance the project, we can ask the user to enter a range and we perform the function on that range of numbers.

**The Code:**

powers=[]

def get_power(num):

powers.append(num**num)

for x in range(1,1001):

get_power(x)

sum=0

for each in powers:

sum=sum+each

print(powers)

print (‘the sum is ‘,sum)

## Python : Curious Number

**Python: Curious Number **

** Problem No.34 in ProjectEuler **

**Definition:** A number is Curious Number if the factorial of their digits equal to the number itself.

**Example:** 145 is a curious number, as 1! + 4! + 5! = 1 + 24 + 120 = 145.

**Our Task:** We will write two functions, first one will get (return) all digits in the number, then another function to get the factorial of each digits in that number then with If statement we will examine the result.**Enhancement**: We will ask the user to enter a number and we will check if it is a Curious Number.

We will reuse some of our functions that we wrote in previous posts.

**The Code:**

digs=[]

print(‘\nEnter a number to see if it is a Curious Number or not.’)

num=input (‘\nEnter a number: ‘)

num=input (‘Enter a number: ‘)

tot=0

# To get the digits In a number

def digits_in_num (num):

for each in str(num):

digs.append(each)

# To get the Factorial of a number

def Factorial_digit_sum(num):

if (num == 0) :

return 1

else:

return num * Factorial_digit_sum(num-1)

for each in digs:

print(‘factorial :’,each,’ is ‘,Factorial_digit_sum(int(each)))

tot = tot + Factorial_digit_sum(int(each))

print(‘\nTotal sum of the Factorial of each digits is: ‘,tot)

if int(num) == tot:

print(num ,’Is a Curious Number.’)

else:

print(num ,’Is NOT Curious Number.’)

## Python: Multiples of Numbers

**Python: Multiples of 3 and 5 **

** Problem No.1 in ProjectEuler **

**This** is very easy, very short task to work on, the task as is in **ProjectEuler **like this “Find the sum of all the multiples of 3 or 5 below 1000.”

**My way,** as i like to do open code works for any numbers, we will ask the user to enter three numbers, num1 and num2 will be as (3 and 5) in the task, my_range will be as the 1000. So the code can get the sum Multiples of any two numbers in a ranges from 1 to my_range.

**The Code:**

# Multiples of 3 and 5

# ProjectEuler: Problem 1

def Multiples_of_N (num1,num2,my_range):

tot=0

for t in range (1,my_range):

if t %num1==0 or t%num2 ==0 :

tot = tot + t

return tot

print ‘\nDescription: This function will take three variables, two numbers represint the what we want to get there Multiples, then we ask for a range so we will start from 1 to your range.\n’

num1=int(input(‘Enter the first number:’))

num2=int(input(‘Enter the second number:’))

my_range =int(input(‘Enter the range (1, ??):’))

total=Multiples_of_N (num1,num2,my_range)

print ‘\nYou entered ‘,num1,’,’, num2,’ So the sum of all multiples of those number in range (1-‘,my_range,’) = ‘,total

## Python: Largest product in series

**Python: Largest product in a series **

** Problem 8 @ projectEuler **

In Problem 8, ProjectEuler wants to find the thirteen adjacent digits in the 1000-digit number that have the greatest product.

In this task i use a for loop to check each 13-dig set, each time creating a set of 13 digits starting from (0,13) then (1,14)..(2,15)….. and so-on. for each set i get the product of its digits and store it in an a array of [set,total] each time if total of the new set is larger than what we have in the array[total] then we write the new values to the array, we call the array largest.

**The Code:**

# Largest product in a series

## Python: Factorial Digit Sum

**Python: Factorial Digit Sum **

** Problem 20 @ projectEuler**

**The Task:** The task in projectEuler P20 is to get the sum of the digits in the number Factorial of 100!

**Factorial Ndefinition**The factorial of a positive integer n, denoted by n!, is the product of all positive integers less than or equal to n. For example, 10! = 10 × 9 × … × 3 × 2 × 1 = 3628800.

**Problem 20** is another easy problem in projectEuler, and we will write two functions to solve it. __First one__ is a Factorial_digit_sum this one will return the factorial of a number. __The second__ function will calculate the sum of all digits in a number N and we will call it sum_of_digits.

**Clarification** As long as i just start solving or posting my answers to projectEuler portal, i am selecting problems and not going through them in sequence, that’s way my posts are jumps between problems, so if i am posting the code to solve problem 144 *(for example)* that does’t meaning that i solve all problems before it.

**The Code:**

#Python: Factorial Digit Sum

#Problem No.20 on projectEuler

def Factorial_digit_sum(num):

if (num == 0) :

return 1

else:

return num * Factorial_digit_sum(num-1)

num=100

fact =Factorial_digit_sum(100)

print fact,’is the Factorial of {}.’.format(num)

def sum_of_digits(dig):

t = t + int(each)

print ‘\nThe sum of your number is’,t

sum_of_digits(str(tot1))

## Python: Collatz Sequence

**Python: Longest Collatz Sequence **

**Problem No.14 in ProjectEuler**

**Definition** Wikipedia: Start with any positive integer n. Then each term is obtained from the previous term as follows: if the previous term is even, the next term is one half the previous term. If the previous term is odd, the next term is 3 times the previous term plus 1. The conjecture is that no matter what value of n, the sequence will always reach 1.

So the formula is: Starting with n, the next n will be:

n/2 (if n is even)

3n + 1 (if n is odd)

If we start with 13, we generate the following sequence:

13 → 40 → 20 → 10 → 5 → 16 → 8 → 4 → 2 → 1.

**A walk through: **

n=13, 13 is odd, then n = 13 * 3 + 1 , n= 40

n=40, 40 is even, then n= 40/2, n=20

n=20, 20 is even, then n=20/2, n=10

n=10, 10 is even, then n=10/2, n=5

n=5, 5 is odd, then n=5*3+1 , n=16

n=16, 16 is even, then n=16/2, n=8

n=8, 8 is even, then n=8/2, n=4

n=4, 4 is even, then n=4/2, n=2

n=2, 2 is even, then n=2/2, n=1

n=1 then end of sequence

**The Task:** The task in ProjectEuler is to searching for a the Number N, under one million, that produces the longest chain.

Overview to my python cases:In my company, we are not allowed to download any software, so i don’t have any Python platform. To solve this i am using an online python interpreter, some time it’s become slow. So in this code (and others) i am spiting the range in 10 each with 100,000 then running the code to get the longest chain in each range. So the Number N, under one million, that produces the longest chain is:

**The Answer: **In my previous codes or math solving challenges in pybites or ProjectEuler I am solving the problems, writing the code, but not posting my answer to ProjectEuler platform. Today, and with Problem No.14 i decide to post the answer in the ProjectEuler platform for the first time just to see what will happen. The answer was 837799, and I get this page.

*In the code bellow, i set the range from 1 to 50000.*

**The Code:**

chain2=[]

longest=[0,0]

def collatz_Seq(num):

t= num

chain=[num]

while t !=1 :

if t%2==0:

t=t/2

chain.append(int(t))

else:

t=3*t+1

chain.append(int(t))

return chain

for num in range (1,50000):

chain2 = collatz_Seq(num)

if len(chain2) > longest[0]:

longest[0] = len(chain2)

longest[1] = num

chain2=[]

print(‘num:’,longest[1],’ has a longest chain: ‘,longest[0])
